Cheddars has no gluten free menu and they do not recommend eating here if you're celiac. I'm not sure why they come up on the list. I truly give them 0 stars but am forced to give one star.
My waitress was the rudest I've ever encountered eating out since diagnosis with celiac. I got a salad and a baked potato and asked if I could get my salad with no croutons and let her know I have celiac and that I could not have gluten. I asked if she knew off hand if any of the dressings were gluten free and she didn't so I said that's ok I'll just not get dressing to be safe. She brought the salad first and it had no croutons but it came with a huge croissant on top. She said oops and took it off but I said I was so sorry but I needed a new salad because there were crumbs on the salad. She goes "you've got to be kidding me, you can't even touch it?!" So loudly that everyone stared. I was so embarassed and kept apologizing. She took the salad away and stormed off and then came back and said it was ok, she gave my salad to someone "less picky". I nervously ate my new salad praying it wasn't the same one that she pretended to change out. She came back later with a voucher for a free dessert and acted a tad apologetic but never said sorry. I'll never go back.
Very impressed! the waitor brought me a GF menu, or rather, a menu that could be customized to be gluten free, with many options.. my favorite is the Idaho mashed potatoes and swiss mushroom burger with no bun!
Tammy Hickman, GM &waiter James both went above & beyond in addressing my celiac Disease food requirements. They both have my upmost thanks and appreciation. Not only did they strive to make sure my food was appropriate they also sought to educate themselves on my disease and importance of not eating Gluten and the difference between the disease and the actual disease.

Waitress not only didn't have knowledge of gluten allergy, she was annoyed I had so many questions about the food. Never told me rice was coming with fish, which I had to turn back. It tasted like a salt stick! Gave this place a second try due to new GF menu. Writing to headquarters to tell them to train their people regarding allergies. No sense in having a GF menu if the staff doesn't care.
My daughter HAS to eat gluten free so she ordered the nachos which she'd had before. However, this time, they made her extremely ill within 15 minutes of finishing. So be careful. I love eating here and I really appreciate the comment about asking for the chef to make her dish.
We sat forever waiting on a server, so I wasn't able to ask anyone about getting a gluten free menu. Getting fed up on waiting, I got up from our table and found a cluster of servers standing around. I asked one of them for a gluten free menu. I was told that I'd have to go and get my own from the hostess stand. Ironically, the server that had me get my own menu was our server. I came back from getting my menu to find her taking orders at my table. She seen me, walked away and sent a different server over to take care of our table. I'm now completely nervous to order anything other than a salad. The new server came over and asked what I wanted to eat. I let him know that it was medically necessary that my salad was gluten free. And to please let the kitchen know to take extra care when making my salad. I asked to please omit any crouton or bread. My salad arrived with a crescent roll right on top. I sent it back and declined anything to eat. I gave a one star review on here, as a zero star wasn't an option. I will NEVER return!
Revised gluten free menu! Best part is the fries are GF!
Couldn't find anything labeled GF on the online menu, ordered a grilled chicken salad with candies pecans and said no bread" gluten allergy" . When it arrived" office carry out lunch" it had the croissant on top! Flaking little bits on my food. I was angry but it is already uncomfortable being the only GF at the office.
Gf menu has 6 entrees, an appetizer, and 2 sides on it. I had the Key West Chicken and Shrimp. It was delicious and one of the most unique and flavorful gf meals I have had out. I would liked to see a few more choices, especially for side items, but was a very positive experience.
The food was great. I had steak, broc and black beans. Caution: the gf menu has 4 options and says cross contamination is possible since they don't have a dedicated gf area. I ordered off the regular menu. downside my steak came on a bed of French's onions type stuff which I was not told about. My waiter didn't seem knowledgeable about being gf. So when you eat here ask questions! I didn't get sick even though I had cross contamination. Again great food!
Ordered the pecan salad without pecans as instructed so it would be gluten free. The salad came out with a roll on it. I asked them to make me a new one and when it returned it was the same salad with the bread removed ...crumbs still on the plate. I won't be eating there again. Should have known when the waiter asked me if cheese was ok when I told him I was gluten free.
Ask for Chef/Manager Travis. He will come talk to you about GF options. He's a wonderful chef and you will get food with great flavor. He's very knowledgeable and has even tweaked items from the main menu to make them GF for me. Fantastic place! The waitstaff gets it too.
I have been to this restaurant several times and never had a problem till this last visit. I will say they have a gluten free menu now. When seated I asked if they had a gluten free menu. When ordering told them about the gluten. They assured me the kitchen changes their gloves and are very carful with special diets. I made it half way home and I started to have trouble. After this last visit I will not be going back. I would say eat at this place at your own risk.
If you go here, immediately ask for a manager. Most servers (and the website) will not have accurate information or understand the hazards with cross contamination. Managers will be best equipped to help you navigate your experience. As someone with celiac this was a nightmare to accommodate during a busy mealtime, so I would also recommend coming when they are slower to get more personalized service.
I went with co-workers for lunch. The gluten free menu is a printed paper with steak, naked ribs, naked fish, and steamed vegetables as options. The menu makes it very clear that cross contamination is a possibility. I went with the ribeye and double broccoli as a side. The broccoli and steak were ok in quality. I'm very sensitive and had no reaction.
All last year of 2014 I was able to eat their ribs with sauce. This year however something has changed. My least encounter put me in bed for three days with body pain and brain fog to the point all I did was sleep. Wheat is like poison to me, you would have thought they would let a person know up front if the menu had changed in any way! It was our favorite restaurant
I went there and asked if they had a gluten free menu and the manger said she would find me one...well when the hostess sat my sister and I down I then asked her for a gf menu and she said "we only have a few and I couldn't find one, but you can pretty much get anything on the menu we will just change the things that you can't have"So I just ended up getting a salad with no croutons. :-/
They have a gluten free menu with pretty much nothing on it, and when I tried to order from it, they gave me conflicting information. The waitress told me nutmeg was not gluten free. The service was super slow and I ended up not eating anything for fear I would be sick. I will never, ever go here again.
This was the worst experience ever. The website shows a gluten free menu, but when you go in, they don't even have an allergen menu. Upon closer inspection of the gluten free menu there is a bourbon glaze listed as an option that is clearly not gluten free. Management was very friendly about the situation, but when my food came it had rice, which is sometimes not gluten free and I was sick the very next day. I would never recommend this place and would give it 0 stars if possible.
A great place to come eat. The only downside to is is that on their gluten free menu there are only 4 choices, ribs, steak and ribs, salmon, and grilled chicken salad.. and they tell you not to order the sauces or seasonings for the ribs and salmon.
According to Cheddar.com, they are suppose to have a few gluten free options. When we got there, the hostess said there was no gluten free menu but our server might be able to answer my question. The manager was not knowledgeable about gluten free items and had to ask chef manager who wasn't sure either. I was lucky and did not get sick because I ordered from the online menu off my phone, but I will not be going back and do not recommend it to anyone that has celiac disease.
I've been to this location twice, not by my choice. The first time I was handed a very limited gluten free menu. Since the baked potato was not listed, I asked the server why? She explained that it was a starch....... I ordered the potato and had no reaction. I asked her to please leave any bread that comes with the meal off of my plate. She said "are you sure?". She was completely clueless. The second time, again not by my choice. I ordered the exact same thing I had ordered the first time and specified again no bread on anything. My steak was served on a bed of crispy fried onions which was not listed on the menu. If absolutely have to go here be VERY specific and ask what hidden items will come on your plate. Their salads due come with a roll on top and you have to ask them to not bring that as well. They have zero gluten free training and their gluten free menu is more of a diet menu than an allergy menu.
