Just yesterday, one of those Fools, Flygal5, succinctly summed up the Buffalo Wild Wings bull case for our community:

A successful restaurant is one of those things that works well in investing. Find a successful restaurant, stick with it as long as it executes and grows. [T]his is something that TMF has really shown me. I think of these as highly competitive low margin businesses, but the revenue growth in taking a concept nationwide makes up for that.
