“Best Restaurant in Knoxville Bar None!”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Date of Visit: Tues. Jan. 29, 2013

Pros: Great food, cheap prices, good service, nice atmosphere

Cons: Um… busy, a little noisy

You can tell I had trouble coming up with cons for this place. We have been there often and I’m glad TripAdvisor finally got the Kingston Pike location on here. This place has excellent food, great service, and great prices. A cheeseburger (huge) is just a bit over $5.00. A huge plate of chicken alfredo and veggies is a bit over $8.00. I had leftovers enough for two more meals and it was delicious! Try their queso, it’s the best, and the croissants too. I’ve had the Monte Christo (fried in what tastes like funnel cake batter with raspberry dipping sauce, it is soo good), the chicken tenders, baked spasagna and the shrimp and have never had a bad meal. The décor is very nice, they even have a large fish tank. Get there early and you can usually get right in. Best restaurant in town bar none!

“Great Food Establishment”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Wonderful food, good prices and this new location has a nice ambiance. The staff are friendly and the service is good. They have a 2 or 3 choice combo at lunch which is a great deal, I ordered the 2 choice combo of salad and 1/2 club sandwich and was full! Recommend this place for casual dining.

“always enjoy”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

We can almost see Cheddars from our house so we eat there quite a bit. The food is very good and they do serve large portions. I would recomend the onion rings or the bacon chedder fries to get started, both are great. The service here was excellent when they first opened but has declined some in the last year. I would still recommend it. Great for the kids too... they enjoy looking at the fish tank if we have to wait.

“Poor Quality food”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

I really dont see what anyone sees in this place. It is packed always with folks who have no idea that they are eating "prison quality" food. Sure, you get a big plate of "prison quality" food for a great price, but you would get better quality food at Knox County Jail.

“great value- lots of food”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

We love Cheddars! You have to have the onion rings. You get a giant plate of them for $3.95.
Everything there is good, The chicken tenders are super tasty. The potatoe soup is great. You should order a salad just to get the wonderful crescent rolls!!!
My husband and I can eat and bring home leftovers for less than $25.00 (with the onion rings).
