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

Dang it! Never fails! We love Cheddar's in San Antonio and eat there often, at the various locations. We have family visiting from out of state and we were anxious for them to try the restaurant we've been raving about. We went to the Waco location while on a road trip to Magnolia Market. The first thing we noticed was... More

Popped in around 6pm, not too crowded for a Tuesday. I usually eat in the bar as it is not as cold as it is in the main dining area, also not as loud. Service in there is pretty good and is always entertaining watching the bartender mix their concoctions. I had the Asian Chicken Salad, one of my favorites.... More

Wanted a decent meal and this was recommended by hotel. Our waiter was super fast and extremely attentive. Food was good and served quickly. Very reasonably priced food and I'd definitely eat here again.

I am not a fan of spicy food and my shrimps had a splash of what I guess was Jerk Sauce on it. It burned a little but I survived. Otherwise my food was really good. The shrimp were grilled well (but a little on the small side.) My chicken was nice and crispy. My mashed potatoes were great. My... More
