Our Family Night at Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen in South Austin
On a Sunday night a few weeks ago, we stayed close to home and went out to eat at the Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen in South Austin. After a busy weekend, we were all pretty hungry and excited to try some of the new Cheddars menu items along with long-standing popular dishes.
Appetizers at Cheddar’s
My family and I started with a few of the recommended appetizers – the spinach artichoke dip and onion rings. You should have seen my kids’ faces when they brought out the tower of onion rings! We tried to recreate their expressions in the pictures below. Not only did the appetizers look pretty, but they also tasted great as well.
Cheddar’s Main Dishes
Next, we had to choose our main dishes. That was the hardest part for me. There were so many options of Cheddar’s made-from-scratch dishes. I wavered between a few of the seafood dishes, the house smoked baby back ribs, and New Orleans Pasta. Ultimately, I went with the Grilled Tilapia and Shrimp W/ Mango Salsa and was quite happy with my choice. The rest of my group chose some other menu items including the chicken tenders, shrimp, ribs, and more. Everyone loved their meals and with the big portion sizes, most of us were able to bring home leftovers. We had to make sure to leave some room for dessert.
The Desserts at Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen
Often on date nights, my husband and I struggle to find a good place for dessert near the house. Well, it looks like we won’t be having trouble anymore. The selection of desserts at Cheddar’s again made it hard to just choose one. So, we ended up ordering a few for our table to share. Our favorite dessert at Cheddar’s was the Cheddar’s Legendary Monster Cookie. This one is a scratch-made chocolate chip cookie, topped with vanilla ice cream, homemade hot fudge, whipped cream, chopped nuts and a cherry – baked to order. It takes a few extra minutes than the other desserts, but it’s definitely worth the wait.
A Future Visit to Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen?
My kids are already asking when we can go back to Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen. We had a great experience with attentive and friendly staff, a variety of food options, and delicious food. I would recommend checking out your local Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen for made-from-scratch meals at affordable prices.
