You may have to wait to get in, but you won't be sorry. Anything we have had at this restaurant has always been good. Pricing is amazing. On a rare occasion our food has not been piping hot as we like it........no problem they look after you promptly.

I just today took my parents to lunch at Cheddars as a thank you gift for hosting me at their winter home for several days. Several years ago we had a Cheddars in our area that has since closed, and I was excited to learn that there was one in the area where my parents winter. Lunch was great... my... More

Based upon our 6 PM Wed arrival, this place is very popular. Parking lot was packed and people were waiting for tables at 7 when we left. We certainly don't know the McAllen restaurant selection, yet are surprised to see this rated so highly. The food is fine, yet unremarkable. Pretty much on par with it's competitor chains. Service was... More

This was a our first time at Cheddars. Our server was excellent! She was able to answer my questions related to the menu. My shrimp and chicken salad was delicious and the warm croissant was like eating dessert. My husband really enjoyed his salmon meal also. Highly recommend!

A very busy noisy restaurant that serves well prepared meals. Be prepared for a short wait to get a table. We waited fifteen minutes, apparently this is true no matter what time of day. Large portions, bordering on too large. We ordered two apple crisp deserts, which we changed to one based on our server's recommendation. She was correct -... More

Delicious food for a great price and the staff is so friendly! I highly recommend the buffalo chicken wrap! But then again pretty much everything on the menu is delicious!
