If Applebee's, TGI Friday's, Mimi's and Houlihan's weren't enough for you, get ready residents of Lenexa and the greater KC area. That's right, they torn down a Firestone outside of Oak Park Mall and moved it 2 blocks down the street so they could open a Cheddar's!!!
To be honest, I've never eaten at a Cheddar's. Aside from possibly hearing the name in passing, I have no idea what it might be. But one look at their menu shows that it is the next restaurant right by my house that I'll never eat at. At least when TGI Friday's runs out of mozzarella sticks, you'll only have to walk across the parking lot rather than across the street to get your fix.
A couple interesting facts from the Cheddar's website. Apparently they don't advertise. They also want you to be as serviced and comfortable as possible while you're inside their walls. While I'm not interested in eating at Cheddar's, I may not be opposed to some romantic involvement.
