For years, food lovers in Sioux Falls have been collectively holding their breath in the hopes that The Cheesecake Factory would finally open a location in South Dakota's largest city.

But sadly, despite having 318 restaurants in the United States and Canada, the Mount Rushmore State remains one of 11 in the country shut out from all of that Cheesecake Factory goodness, with its over-the-top 20-page menu.

Omaha (185 miles), Edina, Minnesota (229 miles), and Des Moines (275 miles) are still our only 'nearby' options for the in-person Cheesecake Factory dining experience.

That doesn't mean you can't satisfy at least a small portion of your Cheesecake Factory cravings in Sioux Falls.

There are five different places in the city where you can walk out with a slice (or more) of cheesecake today.

BARNES & NOBLE

The cafe tucked in the back of Sioux Falls' biggest bookstore has the best selection in town for a fresh slice of Cheesecake Factory cheesecake.

The current options are Godiva Double Chocolate ($5.95 plus tax), Original ($4.95 plus tax), and Coconut Cream Pie ($5.95 plus tax).

You can buy them by the slice or take home an entire cheesecake in those flavors.
