“Get a lot. For not a lot.”

After I ordered my favorite Chicken Tender Bundle at a measly $28.99, I headed to Cheddars’ website and that is what I found on their  “our story” page. And, judging from my experience, (and taste buds, of course), I approved of their slogan.

Starting from Family bundles, Appetizers, chicken, salads and soups, seafood, and even alcohol, you can order what you want and what you need from Cheddars.

You can visit their official website and look up the menu list (which looks DELICIOUS). But, if you care for a few opinions and if ordering an item would be a good idea, then please follow this small piece of review. I have tried to make it worthwhile.

About Cheddars

Aubrey Good and Doug Rogers started the scratch kitchen back in 1979 in Arlington Texas. This endeavor branched into 10 more locations by 1995 starting the Cheddars setting up their chain of restaurants. By 2003, Cheddars earned more than $150 million in revenue from the 42 locations they had opened across 13 states. 

Scratch Kitchen

Good food at a good price – how do they make it possible? Answering these questions, Cheddars claims that they make it from scratch. They don’t keep the secret ingredients to their success a secret – as they revealed– it is built from scratch.

Cheddars’s Fun Fact

When Aubry Good and Doug Rogers were looking for names for the restaurants, a 5th-grade class proposed the name Cheddar’s – and that is how it came to be. The scratch kitchen works to make food taste better. Not only that, they have also tried to scratch out hunger in America. They donate unused food to the local food banks.

There’s nothing better than a home-cooked meal, but not everyone has access to one. Here at Cheddar’s, we’re helping to scratch out hunger in America through our donations to the Harvest Program. Every week we donate unused food to the local food banks who take part in the Harvest Program.

Cheddars Menu

Cheddars Menu

The menu at Cheddars is to die for. The  Chicken Tender Bundle at $27.99 is a must-try. You can also try the Grilled Salmon Bundle, and Salmon and Tenders Bundle if you care for some fish. Your hungry tummy should not go without salad. If that is your mindset, order the Family House Salad.

Cheddar Appetizers

If you want some appetizers, then there are lots of options to look for. You can try some:

  • Buffalo Beer-battered shrimp.
  • Chips & Homemade Queso.
  • Honey butter croissants.
  • Cheddars trio samplers.
  • Wisconsin Cheese bites.
  • Coconut shrimps.

Most of the appetizers come below the price of $10, to $12.

Cheddars Chicken

Do you love chicken? If so, you could check out their Key West chicken & shrimp, and Dijon chicken & mushrooms. Their country-fried chicken is also worth trying. You may also get some of their chicken alfredo and homemade chicken pot pie. And yes, most of them are priced under $13. Unbelievable, right? You can also get some steaks and ribs.

Cheddars Beverages

If you want to grab a bottle of beer or have some bottled wine, you know the place, and you know the name – cheddars. Their beer costs less than $4. Also, the bottled beer comes at a price of around $15. Cheddar’s painkiller, Texas Margarita, Strawberry Texas Frozen Swirl, and Sangria Texas Frozen Swirl are some soul-cleansing glasses to grab.
