The husband and I got a chance to try out Cheddar’s on a date night. The last time I went to a Cheddar’s I was pretty young and so was he. We talked about one that was in a mall near us in our teens. Both remembered it had some fabulous chicken tenders. It was a no brainer to go and try Cheddar’s out for date night. We enjoy date night! It’s time away from the three teenagers and get good time to talk about any issues good or bad without all the animosity.
We started off with the Wisconsin Cheese Bites. There is three appetizers on the menu we had a hard time trying to decide between. When in doubt ask the waitress/waiter his/her opinion. We asked which would be the best and it was what she suggested. Within in minutes we both had to agree with her that they were totally delicious. This would bring us back alone. We love cheese!
Then V noticed the Philly Cheesesteak on the menu. He always has to make sure it is ribeye. We make them at home but rarely. He says it has to be ribeye and it has to have the right cheese. As you can see it had both. He said the meat was tender, bread was excellent, and had the right cheese. He loved that they used whole mushrooms which gave it plenty of flavor.
I got the Chicken Fried Steak. You would think this is playing it safe but I am very odd about my chicken friend steak. The steak must be tender, the batter just right, and the mashed potatoes and gravy must pair perfectly. First off, the broccoli was perfectly steamed which was an amazement to me as usually that is never the case. The gravy had good flavor and the potatoes were tasty. The breading on the chicken fried steak had the perfect amount of seasoning with a good crunch. The meat was well cooked inside. Overall, I have to give a thumbs up.
The waitress helped us with dessert. I was so stuff I didn’t think it was possible to fit anymore in. The strawberry cheesecake in a small shot glass was just enough to cap off the meal. What’s really cool is Cheddar’s is doing a Home for the Holiday contest. Tell Cheddar’s who you want to spend the holidays with and why. Three people can win $1000 and a $250 Cheedar’s gift card.
