I Don't Know Where That Picture Came From Because Food Is Not Served This Way

The food is served in "to go" containers although, you can eat at one of the two bar tables in the country store type area. I live about 5 doors down from this place. They have the best prices on bottled sodas in town. But beyond that they have pretty good cooked to order food. Mostly just... read more

I went back on forth between a 2 and 3 star for this one and chose three. The ice cream is not theirs. They buy it and sell it which is always a disappointment for a place like this. The chocolates are average at best. I honestly would take a box of Russell Stovers first (although I don't care for... More

This is a local store with local foods and crafts of all kinds. There are several different kinds of cheese like horseradish, habanero, rat trap, cheese curds and 8 year old cheddar to name just a few. Many flavors of ice cream, including my favorite, orange pineapple. Homemade fudge, local syrup and honey. Local books, art, photographs, hand made doll... More

We love their tenderloin and fish sandwiches., also their French fries! But, word of warning. An order of French fries will feed at least 2 people! I have never seen so many fries in an order. You definitely get your money's worth! They also have a little store with a deli in there. I buy my honey in there. Their... More

It was just okay. Normal run of the mill deli/general store. The food is microwaved, so be ready for that.

I eat at the Cheddar Depot often, and I always get the same thing, a pulled pork barbecue sandwich. I love it, but today my husband pointed out it's not fresh, they reheated the whole sandwich in the microwave. I still love it. They have great cheese of all varieties, I love the co-jack, my husband loves the pepper jack.... More

FALSE ADVERTISING! Now, for my review...I always get the tenderoin sandwich at Cheddar Depot. it is very tasty, not greasy and they... More

Fish sandwich is best in Salem that I've had so far. Good pork tenderloin sandwich too. Chicken salad not my thing but several in my family really like it too.
