“Typical fare for a chain restaurant”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

The food here is fine. We've not had anything spectacular, but the portions are large, the service is good enough and the prices are reasonable. The sides taste like they came out of a can or the freezer but the entrees we've had have all been good. I suppose if I had to say, the biggest surprise here is how pretty the restaurant is and how packed it always seems to be.

“Large portion chain food at cheap prices”
Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Service was ok, but server was more suited for fast food. In fact, the whole place is barely above fast food on every way. If you like large portions at a reasonable price and don't care about taste, atmosphere, or service - this is your place. Not horrible for a quick place on a budget lunch hour.

“Must try the chocolate chip, hot fudge dessert”
Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

I have always had good food here at a fair price. I tried the baked spaghetti and was pleasantly surprised. My son wanted the chocolate chip cookie dessert..its heavenly the cookie is freshly baked when you order..with real vanilla ice cream and hot fudge. Sometimes I go when is not peak hours and order just this.

“This is the same as Cheddars elsewhere”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

The servings you get in this restaurant are enormous. Never fear, you can carry home what you don't eat and believe me you will not be able to eat it all.

“Chain restaurant , 'nuf said”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

A lot of average food for the money. Nothing special but someone must like it beacuse the lines are always long! I think it is like a buffet quality food that isnt a buffet.
