It’s pretty simple, actually. We’re all about good food, made well, for a good price. How do we pull that off? By cooking from scratch. And here’s the secret about our secret ingredient — it makes for great tasting food, and even better value.


  • "Cheddar's" was proposed by a 5th grade class when our founders Aubry Good and Doug Rogers asked for restaurant name suggestions.
  • We got our start in Irving, Texas in 1979 but now serve guests in 28 states.
  • A scratch kitchen should take the time to make each dish instead of defrosting it. At Cheddar’s, we use quality ingredients and take the time to prepare them in our kitchens each day. To us, making things from scratch means battering your chicken tenders before you fry them. It means smoking your own ribs. It means making your own soups each morning. And it means our food just tastes better.
  • We are known for making things in-house like our famous Honey-Butter Croissants, our Homemade Chicken Pot Pie, our hand-breaded Fried Chicken Tenders, and our In-House Smoked BBQ Ribs.
  • 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 participate in the Harvest Program.
  • Each day, across every one of our restaurants, we “harvest” surplus, wholesome food that isn’t served to guests and we safely prepare it for donation.
