---- — Greer Companies recently announced that Cheddar’s restaurant was voted number one among the best restaurants in the nation according to Zagat and Consumer Reports.

To celebrate, the restaurant chain will be offering a complimentary dessert and chips and queso during lunch or dinner per table of customers on April 8.

To receive the free items, customers just need to purchase a lunch or dinner.

The offer will be available at the local store at 9466 U.S. 36, Avon.

In 2013, Nation’s Restaurant News voted Cheddar’s one of its 2013 Golden Chain Award recipients.

In 2012, Cheddar’s swept the prestigious Zagat ratings for full-service restaurants, ranking first overall and dominating the categories of cuisine, food, décor, and facilities.
