Cheddar's is especially proud of its menu that includes homemade favorites that are still prepared the same way, in-house and from scratch. Cheddar’s began as a simple idea. Cheddar's founders, Aubrey Good and Doug Rogers, envisioned an inviting neighborhood restaurant offering handmade, high quality food at a reasonable price.
They wanted their guests to feel valued and respected. And they were determined to never compromise these fundamentals. Their dream became a reality in 1979 when the first Cheddar’s opened its doors in Arlington, Texas, starting a tradition of quality that guides the restaurant every day.
