I will freely confess that I have been hooked on Cheddar's since my first visit. It was the first time for thus particular Cheddar's. For some reason our food was slow coming out so the waitress brought us a big plate of there wonderful crescent rolls which I love while we waited. I will make that trade any day. So... More

We eat at Cheddar's often because of its convenient location. The food is consistently good and their chicken strips are just wonderful. I recommend this location highly.

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

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, either going to or coming... More
