As you know my family likes to eat – and trying out new restaurants is always fun. One, because you never know what kind of tasty delight your going to find, and two, I get to share it with you (and sometimes even give stuff away!) Recently we visited our local Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen to try out some of their new summer flavors (and anything else that looked good).
We have a Cheddar’s not too far away, just off Colerain Avenue in Cincinnati. Though it’s not far from me, I hadn’t been to Cheddar’s and my son and I were especially excited to try it out (he’s a mac n’ cheese fan, so surely a place called Cheddar’s must have some pretty bomb mac n’ cheese right?!)
One of my favorite things to do is order appetizers – you know all the yummy fried delicious foods with cheese and bacon and things like that? So yeah. That’s what we did.
This is the loaded cheese fries – and OMG. I seriously could of made a meal (or two honestly) out of just this. Completely delicious and full of toppings. I love when there aren’t leftover ’empty’ fries don’t you? I want cheese and bacon on every bite – and they delivered.
We also got a 5 piece chicken tender that comes in original, honey hot or buffalo flavor -and in fact right now you can get a FREE 5 piece appetizer with the purchase of one entree (just print the coupon here !) Though I usually like them hot, the kids choice trumped mine and we got plain – which were still really good, especially with dipping sauce!
Now Cheddar’s is offering some really delish summer flavors, like their tangy citrus miso glazed salmon (a Lighter Side option – that I obviously didn’t go with this trip because we decided to go all out, but it did look really good), the and savory house smoked baby back ribs, (which by the way, was my choice, and soo good!) I got my 2 favorite sides – corn and mac n’ cheese!
My husband opted in for the steak which looked and smelled amazing and will probably be what I order next time we go!
My son got the kids mac n cheese (which can with garlic bread) and of course he stole my corn. (He said it was the best!) Like we figured, their mac n’ cheese did not disappoint, and if I can figure out a way to order a big tray of it and pass it off as my own the next holiday we have, don’t think I won’t!
The food was hot when it came out, the staff was completely amazing (I seriously did not ever even get to think about asking for a refill because they had one on our table before I even had the chance!)
They also have a great list of drinks too, which would make Cheddar’s a great place for happy hour! Not to mention a lot of delicious looking desserts that made my mouth water (but my tummy was too full – maybe next time!) Their summer desserts include their legendary monster cookie and the new knob creek peach smash. (I can’t wait to go back)
