Cheddars is too busy for my taste. Be prepared to wait. I guess it's the combination of affordable plates and good food. I've always great service and the salmon with bourbon glaze is to die for. Definitely beats cross town rivals in portion size and cost. The red beans and rice is so good but on occasion the broccoli casserole... More

We always enjoy going to Cheddars. We were having an early dinner so it was around 4 p.m. before the dinner crowd, No problem being seated promptly. Right from the beginning, our server was not very courteous. For not being busy, I found this unacceptable and should have left. However, our food was wonderful as usual. We will go back,... More

This is a very good place to come with the family. Food is good, the menu has a good variety of dishes, and the service is outstanding. The environment is ok, usually very noisy as you might expect in places like this one. They claim their food is made from scratch, some dishes can take longer than you expect, this... More

I know it's a chain, which most would say could not be a '5'. I say look at the lines at lunch and dinner most evenings, and you'll see I'm not alone in my rating. I have a men's lunch group of 10 retirees in Harlingen, and Cheddar's in Brownsville has become one of our two 'go to' lunch venues.... More

I visited this past week for lunch. Our party of 3 arrived st 11:45 to try to beat the lunch crowd. A line had formed just to sign in with the hostess. A beeper was given to us and everyone else that had arrived. The hostess told us it will be 10 to 15 minutes to seat us. While I... More

We went to the restaurant tonight for dinner. We were seated immediately but after sitting at our table for fifteen minutes as waiters and waitresses walked by and served other tables we finally just got up and left. No one acknowledged we were there. This is the second time we have driven down there and the second time this has... More

My husband and I have been to Cheddars several times and usually on Fridays after work. Even though we order dinner, we like to sit in the bar area. We love their Margaritas!!! We like the friendly servers and relaxing atmosphere. The food has never disappointed us. The portions are generous and everything tastes so good. Their Margaritas are delicious... More

The food and service was great. Our server was Matthew and we will go again and ask to be seated in his area. I had the grilled salmon with bourban glaze and it was superb, better than I would have imagined. The southern green beans were very good. Had one little discrepancy with our order that Matthew went way beyond... More

The food was quite good for a chain restaurant. Our group of 15 was well served. Those with special dietary needs were able to find menu items. Those who disdained going to a chain found the food surprisingly good. Unlike other Cheddars I have dined in, the time between ordering and being served was reasonable.

This restaurant opened spring of 2010. Very good food at reasonable prices. Family type restaurant. Always have had excellent food and large portions. 1/2 pound hambers are $4.59. Best apple pie I have ever had. Other desserts I would like to try for only $3.99.
