Where to Take Your Kids to Eat this Summer

I know I’m not the only one who’s finding themselves eating out a bit more this summer right? Between summer camps, swim lessons, dance recitals and whatever else I’m forgetting right now, summer is not NOT busy and this mama needs a break. So, if that break comes in the form of a relaxing dinner out. I’m all for it. That being said, where we eat said dinner out has to be some place that works for the kids. Thank goodness for Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen! You may remember when we partnered with them last summer and I can say that we’ve been frequenting that joint ever since then thanks to their family friendly menu. So, when we needed a night away from the house recently, we knew just where to head. We’re selling our house you see, so we’re finding ourselves needing to be away at dinnertime more often than not these days, but I digress…

Cheddar’s has added some tasty tidbits to their menu this summer that our worth a try and I wanted to share a few of those with you. On our most recent Cheddar’s jaunt, the kiddos just weren’t their most cheerful. They’ve had a lot of upheaval with all the house showings, and frankly, I’m surprised they haven’t been crankier. I certainly have had my moments. Bwah! So, when we were at dinner I knew I had to put a smile on the their face. Enter Cheddar’s Legendary Monster Cookie. This gooey confection consists of an oversized cookie, chocoolate and ice cream. Mmmm! Sounds good fright? It was! But before we continue on with dessert, let’s talk about dinner.

The hubs went for House Smoked Baby Back Ribs, while I opted for the Citrus Miso Glaze Salmon. I’m training for a half marathon right now and loved that this lighter option was available. We also sampled the Chicken Tender Sampler. Everyone was starving when we go there and a few bits of chicken tenders helped everyone get through until their meal arrived. Mama also might have been helped by the Knob Creek Peach Smash cocktail. Bwah! Now when I tell you this cocktail was delish, I am dead serious. It was perfectly peachy without being too sweet. I liked it so much, I want to figure out how to make them at home. Just sayin’.

    I have noticed a lot of parents taking their children to many different styles of restaurants. I went out to eat at a high end sushi place and there was a family of 4 there and the kids seemed to love it.

    At first, I was thinking that possibly you allowed them to have dessert first lol. That sundae made me want one. We do not have that place in our area or else my husband might have been running out for me. I think that is a great deal and it looks really delicious. Your daughter is so cute!

    I love Cheddars, there are two locations in the greater Austin area. My favorite is the appetizer sampler and the huge frozen margaritas.

    Oh that ice cream is refreshing to eat this summer days. Closest place to take my kids out is SM Mall. They would love eat that. And chicken with spaghetti.

    Oh, that food looks so good! We love to go out at least once a week as a family. Finding items on the menu that everyone will like is key. I will have to see if we have one close to us, thanks!

    Just the name of the place Cheddars has my mouth watering because I love cheese a whole lot. I love the photos of those drinks as well. That salmon also looks so good. I would definitely eat there.

    I wanted to eat at a Cheddar’s in Florida, but we never made it. Now, I am drooling up here where there are no Cheddar’s!
