“Wonderful x 2!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Relatively new casual restaurant in Corpus Christi. Food prices are very reasonable! Good selection and great staff! This is my second review of this restaurant, this visit was just as good as our previous visit. We were fortunate to get the same server as our last visit, Garret. Restaurant was crowded, but we were seated relatively quickly. Garret made recommendations, took the orders and was back in a flash with accurate meals. Service was fantastic! It is a casual restaurant; I would recommend it for outings with family and friends. Excellent value!

“Great place to enjoy lunch or dinner.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

For a franchise restaurant (although most are company owned) it is surprising that the service and food is consistent within the organization. Have now dined at several in different cities in Texas and so far, all of them have friendly staff, exceptional service and great food. The lunch and dinner menus are great. Enjoyed the salmon dinner at this one and the salmon was grilled perfectly, fresh and served on a bed of rice with two sides. My guest has the 8oz sirloin and was prepared rare as requested. The prices are inexpensive for the meal that you receive. The only downside I have found dining at Cheddars is that it is very noisy. Poor acoustics, but not bad enough to enjoy a great meal.

“Wow! We are going back for more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

First time to a Cheddars restaurant and was impressed. We were immediately seated. Our group of six waited 5-10minutes before a waiter greeted us and took our drink order. All the dishes servef at the tables lookef appetizing and latge quantities. We ordered the Dijon Chicken and Mushrooms, two chicken tender platters, sirlion steak dinner, chicken pot pie and grilled tilapia. Only two of those dishes were completely eaten. We had to take the rest home. Each dish was cooked to right temp and each dish we ordered was what we were served. While eating the manager checked on us and the waiter told us his favorite desserts. For dessert were planned to try the "minis" they completely sold out. Great food at a great price.

“Great margaritas!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

I can't remember what I ate here, but I do recall the frozen margaritas were worth the 20 minute seating wait. It is a clean building, very busy....not the place to go if you are in a hurry.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

We arrived @ 6PM Sunday evening, parking lot was quite full, but not fully packed; it was busy. We had a party of 8. Hostess estimated 30 minutes, then about 5 minutes later she revised it and told us 15 minutes, then about 5 minutes later again, she had a table open for us. Our server Garrett was on us immediately to get drink and appetizer orders, he made a few quick recommendations then was back in a flash with our drinks. Menu had a good variety of items and the prices were very very reasonable, 12 oz. ribeye for $12.99... it cost that much to buy it at the market! When Garrett brought our meal to the table, each order was correct and looked good. He checked on us regularly during the meal, refilled drinks, removed empties, etc... A very good server. The athmosphere is casual, excellent for families, good for business lunches, OK for date nights out, etc... This was an excellent dining experience at a casual restaurant. In my opinion, our server Garrett made the meal spectacular. Nothing specific, he jus did his job and did it very well. I would definately recommend this restaurant. Thanks for a great evening.
