Earlier this week, one of those Fools, 2amStocks, tapped the stock as a particularly tasty bargain opportunity:

Why didn't I think of bringing [Buffalo Wild Wings] to the mid-west? Increases in food prices are eating up margin (marginally) but same-store sales and average weekly sales just keep on climbing. Increasing company owned stores by 19% in 2012 is definitely a good sign.
