This is a favorite meeting spot for friends. The food is great and its a great place that everyone know about to meet and chat. I love the country fried steak. (doesn't beat my wife's though!!)

I am very forgiving when it comes to restaurants and their service. Having working in the industry when I was younger I know that there are a ton of things that can go wrong when placing an order (i.e. Kitchen staff, understaffed, etc.), That said, I gave this Cracker Barrel three chances in the past year.

this is a family friendly restaurant that offers good family food in a convenient location to interstate & airport, plus the "general store" is a kids paradise for gifts
