Cheddars A Restaurant Review
Cheddars Restaurant Food and Drinks Reviewed
Cheddars in Review
On the third day the restaurant opened in Independence, Missouri, we visited during the day, during the week and fell in love with the food and prices instantly. It is a comfortable environment. Some seating areas have more ambiance than the open areas. I even like sitting in the booths surrounding the bar with TV's in the corners. We frequent this restaurant as often as possible and try several different dishes.It is rare to find a food establishment one can visit due to reasonable pricing.
The huge stack of onions as a cheap appetizer is the best! $ 3.99. I think that is impressive for over 20 onion rings and a perfect red dipping sauce. Of course, you can have ranch too, but I prefer the red sauce.
It has ambiance and charm with the large live plants above the tropical fans. The fish tank is vast and captures many children's eyes. I have not found a spot I do not like to sit in this restaurant. It has an ideal setup
At times, I venture into the blitzed zone and drink a couple of Pain Killer tropical rum drinks that are so fruitfully decorated. Limit 2 here, if you have them, you will understand why. Just make sure you are not the driver! This is my absolute favorite drink of all times.
The first visit was an education on the amount of food and the fact that you will walk out with a box 75% of the time. The fried catfish is one of their best dishes. It is fried up just as my dad would have done it (I ate catfish growing up, nearly every week).
The Philly steak cheese is not the real thing, but I can settle for it and barely eat the whole sandwich. Sometimes, this is the whole reason I go, for this sandwich.
In the last month, Spasagna has become a favorite. It is so hearty with a combination of spegetti and lasagna noodles. It is best with the meat sauce, yes there are choices here. I would like a little more sauce on the plate, in addition to what is inside this pasta dish. The extra sauce would be nice to dip the garlic bread in.
My daughter tried the mango salsa talapia, she prefers her talapia with less fancy and more butter and lemon. As you can see in the picture, it is a beautiful presentation and enjoyable for people that love a more tropical flavoring to their fish.
The best side dish is always the broccoli cheese casserole. It is a must! Some people order two of them. The beans are not that special , and that is probably the only side I wouldn't recommend.
The service has always been fast and the prices are more reasonable than most restaurants. It is always packed, so plan to wait to get a seat. They lack on waiting areas considering how busy they constantly are.
This is truly my favorite restaurant. Find your favorite dish or explore new ones to enjoy. I can't offer any help on the desserts, I never have room left to enjoy one. They all look very inviting and delicious.
My Top 5 Dishes I love at Cheddars
- Philly steak cheese sandwich
- Spasagna - a spaghetti, lasagna that truly impresses
- Fried catfish
- The side: Broccoli Cheese Casserole is the top favorite.
- Appetizer - the tall stack of onion rings
