“Large portions are the norm!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in for dinner while travelling through Cookeville, TN
I ordered the lunch portion of the fried chicken dinner. It was huge. The single breast covered the whole plate. The taste was average and there too much breading. I had a salad and a side of vegetables. Both were good and fresh. Atmosphere was good and service was up to pare.

“Absolutely Great!!”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

This restaurant is run like they ALL should be. Fantastic food, service, and fast!! The prices are also very reasonable. The portions are big so anyone leaving here hungry it is your own fault. The parking lot is almost always full so do not let that stop you from pulling in. Squeeze your car in somewhere and put your name down and I have never had to wait more than 8 or 10 minutes ever. They bring your food hot and delicious and fast. I cannot say enough good things about this Cheddar's. We live an hour away from it but always go several times a month. It is worth every drive!!

It doesn't matter what you order, Cheddar's just has great food! My favorites, fish tacos, and chicken with mushrooms.

“Service and quality of food #1, prices amazingly reasonable”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

On a cold day with snow falling, the service and food were especially warming. The speed and courtesy of our waitperson was superb; the food was served quickly and the food was quite tasty.
The Cheddar's model of excellent food and price cannot be beat. And, the restaurants seem to be consistent in their quality regardless of locations.

“Good atmosphere and good chicken!”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

Normally sit in the bar area. Small but quaint. TVs are on sports which is what we like. Food is good with large portions. Normally share an order of chicken tenders...and it's plenty!
