We stopped for a late lunch at Cheddar’s today.  They were pretty crowded and we were seated way in the back of the restaurant, now known as the “ignored zone”.  I’m convinced our waitress’s tables must have been scattered throughout the restaurant because she certainly wasn’t anywhere near our table for most of the time we were there.  We decided to start off with some onion rings.

It was a heaping pile of onion rings for $4.  Way more than we could eat.  They had a nice crunch and the onions were cooked perfectly.  The only downside was that the more you ate, the saltier they got.  For his entree, Loren got the World Class Chicken sandwich.

He’s a big bacon fan, but he ended up taking this bacon off the sandwich.  It was a brown sugar cured bacon which meant it didn’t taste like bacon at all.  It was slightly sweet, but mostly had no flavor at all.  I ordered the half salad/half Monte Cristo combo.

The Monte Cristo is like eating a ham & cheese doughnut, especially when you dip it in the raspberry preserves that come with it.   Very sweet and tasty too.   Total bill with a drink was $22.
