We met a friend that likes American food and Cheddars had all the choices to make us all happy. Salmon, chicken and pasta dishes. Our waiter was very attentive and although it was very busy we only waited a few minutes. Will look forward to returning to order the onion ring stack.

During our stay in Waco, Texas, we went to Cheddars twice since our first experience was so positive. Both times we had quick, efficient, and friendly service. The food was hot and prepared exactly as ordered. The restaurant is pleasant inside (the second time we had a view of the saltwater fish aquarium). The prices are very reasonable. Couldn't ask...

Waited 30 minutes to get in only to be waited on by a "guy" who was really lite in the loafers, and he must've made his mother proud. He brought our drinks and said he would be right back to take our order, 15 minutes later he still hadn't come back, mgr. ask if everything was ok, told him we... More

Bourbon shrimp is my favorite. It was delicious. I got a salad and red beans & rice. This is my new go-to item at cheddars. Definitely give it a try. The shrimp is bigger than most and delicious! Nice server too!

Austin took such great care of us! We have a wonderful lunch, food was so good! We enjoyed the iced tea, veggie plate, chicken tenders, and the pecan grilled chicken salad. We will be back!

Quick easy seating in bar area. Quick waitstaff and food order delivered. Our waitress checked on us often enough to check on us. We did not feel rushed. Had a half Cheddars club and side salad and hubby had full club with coleslaw. Yummy and delicious. Would visit again.

The peach tea was refreshing . I enjoyed the veggie plate with one of those lovely warm croissants. My husband enjoyed the baked spasagna . Our waiter was great.

I used to love Cheddar's, however, last night's visit was a huge disappointment. We had to wait FOREVER for our food. People all around us, who were seated and who placed food orders after us, got their food (and finished eating) before we got ours. When my husband asked about our food, the waiter said the kitchen "had to fight... More

This was our second trip to Cheddar's. The last visit was several years ago, and it was nothing to write home about. Last night we thought we would give them another try. Problems: 1. Start off with a dirty menu. How hard is it to wipe off the menu before you give it to someone? 2. Salmon was dry and... More

This was a really good visit, I think Cheddar's has really great tasting food for a good price. I don't eat out very much, but I will definitely be returning soon for some more of their amazing food. The service was great and the waitress was very nice. And when we were seated, you could see your reflection in the... More
