It began as a simple idea.

Founders Aubrey Good and Doug Rogers envisioned an inviting neighborhood restaurant offering hand-made, high quality food at a reasonable price. They wanted their guests to feel valued and respected. And their were determined never to compromise these basic fundamentals.

Their dream became a reality in 1979 when Cheddar's opened its doors in Arlington, Texas, starting a tradition of quality that guides us every day. We're especially proud of our menu, including home-made favorites that are still prepared the same way, in-house and from scratch. We are also proud of our great team. They are attentive and dedicated to taking care of our guests each and every day.

At Cheddar's, our goal is to live up to that original, simple idea: be a great restaurant that serves quality food fresh from the kitchen in a friendly, comfortable atmosphere at a fair price.
