Great Place To Eat

We like going to Cheddar's, the food is really good and the portions are so much I always have to get a to go box to take it home. My son is a big eater and he even has taken home his food. At times the wait period is a little long but that is usually on the weekends, but... read more

Went with family after a funeral for lunch. Loved the decor. All our relations have eaten here many times. This is the first time for my husband and I. He had a chicken salad with pecans. Not much chicken and he didn't realize the pecans were candied. It was just OK. I had the fried chicken breast with mashed potatoes... More

Really run well facility and service is always good. It gets a bit crowded at times but there is ample parking. All the items I have had have been above average. Can't go wrong with this well run chain.

I ordered the cheese fries which were delicious. On the other hand I ordered the Cajun chicken and sausage pasta which was horrible. The noodles were soggy and I only had one sausage in the pasta. The chicken was hard and dry and old. Never again. The service was great.

We stay in the area a few times a year and this a must-stop for us! Have tried the chicken tenders, burgers, sandwiches, salads...all have been very good. Prices are very reasonable - you definitely get the most for your money here. A couple of my favorites - Monte Cristo sandwich and buffalo chicken tenders

We come here often. I love their food. Just make sure to come early for dinner or you will have to wait. Only problem I see with this restaurant is their carry out. They are not like other restaurants in the area that will come out to your vehilce or have a special place to park to pickup your food.... More

After being snow and ice bound for about a week, we decided to head out for some "comfort" food. We chose Cheddar's. Good deal. I had grilled salmon with steamed broccoli and a small dish of mac and cheese. The server suggested I have the lunch portion as the dinner portion was quite large. I followed her suggestion and it...

Go here often because the food and service are consistently good. They could use some variation in their menu.

I imagined that Cheddars was just like every other chain, all the same. However, this Cheddars is better than the others I've been too. I've never been impressed by any Cheddars & it's literally never a suggestion of mine. The Alcoa location is a cut above the rest though. Something just makes it better. The food was much better than... More
