“We love Cheddars!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2010

Cheddar's reminds me of home. Not your home-cooking type restaurant but a place of familiarity and always consistently great food. While sometimes the service slips due to it being busy, the food is generally always hot, tasty, very reasonably priced. Try the spinach & artichoke dip!

“Its true, style and good food can't make up for poor service!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2010

Do not, I repeat, do not plan to eat a the Joplin Cheddars on a Sunday. The hostesses are rude and have no clue how long the wait will be. They will tell you anything just to get your name in the book. The wait staff is so short handed that your food will arrive before your soft drinks or salad. This is truly a great place to eat, but they truly need to work on their service and time management as a whole.

“Consistent Good Food, Good Value -or- disappointment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2009

I honestly don't know how they do it. My family has been to Cheddar's (Joplin) on several occasions. The food is always hot, served quickly and continues to be a good value. Obviously, we're not the only ones that think so, because it always is full of guests. We were there on Tuesday evening, and again, the restaurant was full. I commented on how professional the wait staff looked in their matching shirts, slack and neck ties. The staff seemed to work well together, helping one another.
I ordered the baby back ribs, coleslaw and baked potato. We thought that it was curious that they didn't have (or had run out of baked potatoes) at 6:15 pm, but they offered me something else. The ribs and coleslaw were delicious. The coleslaw was the creamy sweet style. We had their chocolate chip cookie-ice cream dessert. It was perfect for the occasion.
However, my wife ordered a side of chicken tortilla soup and a chicken/shrimp over rice meal. She said that the soup was too salty and didn't eat it, and that she felt the chicken/shrip dinner was "skimpy". She said that she had maybe 3oz of chicken and 5-6 little shrimp. She was also dissapointed that we were not offered any dinner rolls with our meal...they looked good.
