I don’t think it matters what time you go to this place, it is always crowded. We got there around 3:00pm this past Saturday and were told it would be about a 25 minute wait, but were seated in about ten minutes. Our waiter was helpful and friendly but the kitchen must have been getting slammed because it took more than 15 minutes to get our appetizers and drinks. The atmosphere at Cheddar’s is casual, the entrees are in the 10.00 – 15.00 range, and Margaritas were tasty and under 4.00. So how was the food?
The food was good, not amazing, but well worth the money. We had loaded potato skins for our app and I enjoyed them. They were filled with cheese, seasoned well, and the skin was nice and crispy. If you are not a cheese lover, like my date, you may want to avoid this one. Although my date simply scraped off about half the cheese and ate and enjoyed the rest. For our entree we both had a rib combo. Mine came with fried shrimp, hers with chicken tenders. I didn’t care for the shrimp, they were too small, and there was way too much breading. We both enjoyed the ribs, and she loved her chicken tenders. A must have, which you have to request, but it is included in the meal, is the croissants. They were flakey and buttery and hot and drizzled with honey. Yummy!
Would I go back to Cheddar’s? Absolutely. That was not my first time there and it won’t be my last. I don’t know what it is about that place that keeps it packed but whatever it is they are doing, they should keep it up, because its working. Well, on to the next. As always, I wish you Happy Eating!
