Always good food

Had breakfast here before heading on to DFW area. Our waitress Gabby was very friendly and fast. Food was prepared well, did seem to take a little longer than usual. Typical Cracker Barrel food.

Driving through from Houston to Lubbock and had a hankering for some country cooking. This CB did not disappoint. We particularly like the new healthy menu items. We'll make this a waypoint on future trips.

Usually I am never disappointed with a Cracker Barrel but this location did disappoint. Slow to recognize our presence, food way over done(hamburger steak),long line at checkout, bathroom filthy. No paper in one stall but lots on floor. Kitchen was very slow but our waitress, Misty, did a great job considering the circumstances. Hopefully they will upgrade as I called... More

What is happening to Cracker Barrel? The service was terrible, and the food was even worse. You never even see a manager anymore.

We visited some Cracker Barrel Restaurants when we travelled through the US south states. We always liked the food, the design of the restaurants, the friendlyness of the staff and the prices. We are now on a trip around Texas and visited another Cracker Barrel in Abilene after 20 years. It's like a flash back. Everything is exactly as it... More

Being a chain you know what to expect in the way of food. The service is very good here too. This was a very pleasant visit with good food and good service. What else do you need?

The food was good, until we found bits of plastic packaging in the white gravy. The waiter was very apologetic and he was fine, we were able to get that entree off our bill, but the manager did not even come over to say anything, and let the waiter do the dirty work. Very disappointing.

The service and food was awesome! The waitress went out of her way to help my kids surprise me with a special desert for my birthday.
