IRVING, TX – Yet another chain restaurant on our visit home and this time its Cheddar’s Casual Café. It’s a made from scratch American food restaurant founded in Arlington, Texas in 1978 that has expanded throughout the South and Midwest. I have known the co-founder, Douglas Rodgers, and his family for many years.
Today, I’m going to do a simple burger review. I had an Original Burger, described as a thick juicy burger with lettuce, tomato, mustard, pickles and onion. Overall it was decent, as is typical the burger was overcooked from my requested doneness of medium. Also, the bun to burger ratio was off as the bun overwhelmed the sandwich. I shoulda stuck with what I know I like, the Top Sirloin Ribeye, the Chicken Fried Steak or the Cheddar’s Club.
The Metroplex is all about the chain restaurant and despite the burger review, Cheddar’s will always be one of my favorites for the quality of the food and the great prices that go along with it.
