Food & Shopping

While service may vary from location to location, the food offerings are consistent throughout locations. This location has not disappointed in level of service. The shopping is part nostalgia, part holiday oriented, part travel fun for kids, and includes a little something for everyone.

Generally, a good, hearty "comfort food" breakfast with biscuits, sausage, eggs needs a good cream gravy to make it top shelf. Sadly, Cracker Barrel, or at least the one in Abilene has the nastiest tasting cream gravy, and that really spoils it for me. I would describe the taste being cream gravy flavored with artificial bacon bits. Yuck! If they... More

I stopped here for breakfast this morning and was disappointed by how long it took to get served. The tables were almost all fully occupied at 7am but there were only two people serving. It took nearly 20 minutes before we could order and over 45 minutes to get our food. We expect breakfast to be a lot quicker than... More

We have stopped at many Cracker Barrel locations up and down the road. We have found that most are consistently professional and with well trained staffs. We've also learned that the Cracker Barrel establishments that have long waiting lines, most likely have such a cheerful staff which makes it a place most likely worth the wait. I suppose you could... More

Stopped here for a late lunch while in the area. The service was wonderful. I don't believe I've had bad service at any of this chains locations. The food was good, nothing special but on the average side of the fence. The cucumber/onion/tomato salad was good but had too many cukes and not quite enough onion and tomato for my... More

If you need a reliable clean place to eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner, you know what to expect. The bathrooms are always clean.

My husband's meal was messed up from the beginning. Other people refilled our tea or we had to ask our waitress for refills. Don't order the steak...it's definitely not a steak house. My dumplings came out cold. No potatoes (mashed or baked) at 5:30 pm on a Saturday!

Went here after a few weeks of business travel and I could not take anymore free hotel breakfasts. I had the blueberry pancakes and they were very good, I like the little bottles of syrup they give you, even though you are paying for them. Service was great and they even got me a coffee to go. I have eaten... More
