I have already been to the Murfreesboro Cheddars twice. The first was complimentary as they were still training new staff. Cheddars opened on 12/4 and we visited tonight 12/7 @ 4:15. There was already a line and we waited for 15 for seating. I had the Talapia the first time and it was teriffic, done just right. The sides were cole slaw and broccoli. The cole slaw was slightly sweet and had a wonderful taste. The broccoli reminded me of Outback, which has the best in town. One of the unique things about this restaurant to both my wife and me is the broad range of good offerings. If I can find 3 items on most menus, I am happy. There isn't a thing on the Cheddars' menu not worth trying. Additionally, we both noticed that the prices are very reasonable and the servings quite large. My daughter joined us tonight and the three of us couldn't finish the delicious chocolate fudge cake with vanilla ice cream (Blue Bell) and whipped cream...it was only $5.49. Tonight my wife had the salmon and said it was done just right, and she is VERY picky about how salmon is done, since it is usually overcooked. She had the rice as a side last time, and it was slightly spicey and very tasty...not that dried out rice we often get elsewhere. Tonight she ordered broccoli and carrots, which she also thought were quite tender, tasty and not overdone. I decided on the honey baby back ribs and realized later that I did not ask if they were Danish, which they obviously weren't. A full rack for $13.99, but not up to TGI Friday because they weren't Danish. I'm picky about ribs and won't order again. I'd give them an 8 out of 10 however. I just like 10 !!! Service was faster this time than 4 days ago, in spite of the large crowd (which was even bigger when we left !!!) We had appetizer, entre and dessert and out in about an hour and 15 minutes. We had a lively conversation and were very hungry, but didn't notice any inordinate delay like the other reviewer had. Many restaurants we go to seem to take FOREVER to get us the food..not here...not tonight. I am having an Army buddy/ college classmate in town next week. I am taking him to Cheddars for lunch. I would give Cheddars 4 1/2 stars as a casual dining establishment. Cheddars is not gourmet, like a Ruth Chris, but it is the best CD in town, and I have been here for 12 years and tried them all. For ribs, I'll go to TGIF. I think I'll try the salad for lunch and get to the readers on that. I will ask my wife to write a review and we'll see what she says.
My sister and I came to nobody's for some drinks. We were celebrating a job promotion. We went on a Friday night and sat with some girl friends in the dining room. We were informed that there was going to be a live band so we were excited. We drank two for one vodkas, margaritas and a sangria that was really tasty! We ate wings cheese sticks (or logs , they were huge!) and nachos. We really anticipated the food to be just like any other bar but it was just the opposite. It had great flavor and yOu could tell it was homemade not frozen! Our server was just great! She asked us if we wanted more to drink even before our drinks were empty and made sure we never went without. She was busy too! But handled things with a smile. The band was zone status and they out on one hell of a set! They even moved tables so people could dance!!! As things settled down and we were ready to leave a woman ( who I presume to be the manager) asked us how we enjoyed things. After ranting how much we enjoyed it she was so excited to invite us back and told us she would make sure the next time we came in she would make sure we tried one if her homemade desserts. This place was great and we had an amazing time! We made new friends and even got some phone numbers and drinks bought for us! Just like the place we used to go back home!!! We will be back very soon!!!!!
The food was great, and the atmosphere was great. Everything was awesome except our waiter was not very good. She was extremely awkward and acted like she didn't want to be there. It took her 10 minutes to bring out my girlfriend's water and 15 to bring my lemonade. The appetizer onion rings took about 30 minutes to come out and they came out after our meal was on the table. But as far as the quality for the price, you can't beat it. I just want a different waiter next time. I'll be back again and again no matter what the waiter/waitress does because of the food and atmosphere.
