Well, what can I say the service is ok at best and the food, hmmm there! The food seems to be all frozen and pre made. It just don't not taste fresh at all! I will not be going back.

We went to this Cheddar's because I'd never eaten there before and hubby wanted me to experience it because he'd eaten there before and thought it was great. We arrived around 1:30 for lunch and the restaurant was still busy. Not wanting to be in the main dinning room (too many people and too noisy) we opted for the bar... More

Ate here on a Friday night and the food was delicious, but it was so cold in the restuarant, we had to eat fast and get out. It was very noisy, but it was crowded. The service was a little slow, but there were a lot of people there.

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

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.
