First of all, let me say, that in all of the years that I've visited many of the Cheddar's restaurants, not once have I ever gotten a bad meal. Sure, Cheddar's is like many restaurants, you're going to find some better than others. In the past several years I began visiting the one in Waco... read more

This restaurant is the worst place that I've visited in the Waco area. As soon as we entered the noise level was defeaning! Not only the echo from other tables, but the noise coming from the kitchen area: clanking of silverware, trash buckets, orders being demanded from the servers. Second request to a different table, this time we moved to... More

We went to Cheddar's at about 4 PM. This place gets real busy because it has a good variety of food choices and they are reasonably priced. Wife had steak and shrimp and I had chicken fried steak. Both meals were very good. Service was very good. We enjoyed the casual atmosphere.

We were on vacation and we noticed a Cheddars restaurant we thought to try for dinner. It was not to open until 2 days and we were leaving that town. We decided we wanted to try one, never having heard of them before. We finally found one in Texas to eat at. The salad was food, but the warm honey... More

Lunch today was grilled salmon, rice, broccoli & cheese, and green beans. Everything was excellent: in fact, it was better than the fish places. I do not know why this restaurant isn't rated higher. Service was fine. Only 2 things could possibly have made it better: a piece of bread or roll with lunch would have been good, and it... More

Travelling from Dallas to San Antonio, the hunger hit at Waco. This was our first trip to Cheddar's. It was off the major highway, but was worth the extra effort it took to find it. The menu was filled with many great choices. The Bar B Q Ribs were juicy and tender. One half rack was more than enough. The... More

I almost left before my food came though. The waitress had so much perfume on I had to cover my... More

I had the talapia with mango salsa. I was surprised when it arrived as some sort of Cajun dish. The seasoning was over powering and not too great. The fish should have been served a couple of weeks earlier. The croissants were good as usual, although I'm not thrilled with paying an extra buck each for them.. Our server was... More
