Cheddar’s is one of the cheapest sit down restaurants in the University area. My first time visiting was three weeks ago and since then I have fallen in love. I’ve always heard great things about the restaurant, so my best friend and I decided to see what all the hype was about and give it a try, and boy am I glad I did.

Cheddar’s has a casual atmosphere with many of the dinner entrees costing less than $10, which is perfect for college students living in the area. The portions of food will fill your belly and still leave you with enough to take home.

My first time vising, I ordered the Buffalo Chicken Wrappers and the Cheddar’s Legendary Monster Cookie Sundae, spending under $15. It was quite delicious too.

Although the food is inexpensive, customers aren’t given complementary bread, but are able to purchase three of their buttery, mouth-watering croissants for less than $2. It’s a pretty good deal.

The service at Cheddar’s is out of this world. The employees are very welcoming and I love how well-trained the servers are. The waiter who served my best friend and I had was definitely one of the best I’ve ever come in contact with. He was an extremely nice guy and took the time to converse with and gt to know us not just as customers, but as people.

I was surprised how quick he was because the restaurant was very busy that day. He made sure our drinks were full and never once did I have to ask for a refill. He definitely deserved every bit of tip from us that day.

I can honestly say I enjoyed my first time at Cheddars. I am a huge fan because of their low budget dining, casual atmosphere, professional waiters and delicious food.

If you haven’t given Cheddars a try, I’d advise you to do so. The food is out of this world.
