Tasty!

I ordered the hickory smoked half back ribs which comes with fries and cole slaw, but because I don't like cole slaw, I was allowed to substitute it for another side (thank goodness). The ribs were so tender and full of flavor!! My virgin piña colada was not so good and too costly for the size I... read more

Went there on a crowded Thursday evening and was promptly greeted by out server. Had the steak and shrimp which was cooked per our order. The steak was great and the fries were crispy. Go ahead and give them a try, you won't be disappointed.

We stopped in here for dinner. Our server (Meridith?) was great. She has only been there a month but she was on the ball. Drinks and food made it to the table quickly. They had a huge variety of food and the portions were good.

Big fan of Cheddars in Cookeville and Ashville, This location was great in the beginning but it has just went downhill. We will not be back. Last 3 times have had inconsistant service and food was not good. I don't know what is up with this location but the food is just never the same. No consistancy. Our fries were... More

This restaurant has the best onion rings anywhere. They are sliced thin and served around a vertical round pole. They also have some outstanding chicken tenders. I ordered just the appetizer size of tender and they were more than enough to fill me up. Plus they come with french fries. A really good bargain.

Our family loves eating at Cheddars. The menu has a wide variety of items and the servings are very generous. We especially enjoy the décor and the interesting ceiling fans. The only down side is the noise level is rather high if you are trying to have a conversation with others.

We ate during the church crowd on a Sunday afternoon. We waited about 20 minutes for a table but once we were seated, service was fast and efficient. Wait staff were working hard and were pleasant. Our entrees and salads were delicious and we had enough to take away for a second meal. We would return.

I tried the spaganza and was so grossed out the waitress had to get me something else. So I went with the steak and shrimp. There were only 4 shrimp and they used a sweet sauce on them which was not very good. My medium well steak was well done...no medium to it. <y friends fried chicken was very good... More

I got the mango salsa with talapia and a side of mashed potatoes and macaroni & cheese. Our appetiser was the chips and queso. The apetizer and the sides were the only good food I had. The mango salsa isn't even salsa, it's pico degallo (spelling?) And the fish had bones. Where I hail from, you have to clarify in... More
