“Less than desirable experience won't sour me on Cheddar's”

You know you don't have the best server in the industry when you see them leave the restaurant to go next door to a service station to get a pack of cigarettes when you are looking for them. Didn't get much better from there.
Had to get up from the table and track down the server to request an order of bread.
The other problem wasn't the server's fault, but I had about the worst baby back ribs I've had anywhere. They were over cooked and very dry. We had to track down the server, once again, to ask for barbecue sauce to help with the dryness. Still couldn't eat some of the meat.
I've had too many good experiences at Cheddar's to let this one keep me away.
I probably should have complained about the ribs, but I wasn't in the mood.

We ate at this Cheddar's on a recent family trip. We've always enjoyed the food at Cheddar's - it is consistently good. Our waiter, Austin, was friendly and helpful. He chatted with us about our trip (and travel in general), and was very nice. One of us ordered a Monte Cristo, and it was very tasty, as always (this particular person always looks forward to the Monte Cristo and won't even consider ordering anything else). It was a late meal after a long day of traveling, and each of us thoroughly enjoyed our food. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

I went with coworkers to the Cheddar's next to Ramsey's and Five Guys. I was able to quickly secure a table, but quickly had to be reseated as more than expected showed up. No problem getting reseated. Cheddar;'s has a large, two sided menu to order from. I had a salad, half rack of ribs, and one chicken tender from another. The food and service were good.

Spoiler alert!! Since this Cheddar's is located in a residential area and they have a varied and reasonable priced menu, expect to share your dinning experience with lots of young ones.

We stopped at Cheddar's for lunch because we've never been to one but heard great things. Overall the experience was a little sub par. Service was slow and started with "a mixup". Our server was good, but everything seemed to take longer than it should, I think because the wait staff has to walk so far between their stations and the tables they serve. Food was marginal - tortilla soup was thin and the sandwich just seemed like it came out of a box. None of it was horrible, just won't be a "go-to" place for us.
