So slow

The food is standard for Cracker Barrel, but the service is soooooooo slow that I can't eat there for lunch or I will be late for work & I can't go there for dinner because it is tooooooo long for little kids to be still.

I have always loved stopping in at Cracker Barrel, it a favorite place to meet my family from west Texas. This time I was disappointed, the service was bad, my sixteen year old granddaughter ordered chicken & dumplings, the waitress brought her a small bowl with a child cup of water with a straw suitable for a small child, no...

We had a large group (11) for dinner one night. The waitress was very attentive and the food was very good.

My family and I decided to stop here for supper after a long day of traveling. With the amount of cars on the property and people on the premises, we expected to wait awhile, but we were seated within five minutes of our arrival. Our waitress Ashley came right out and got our drink orders and delivered them promptly. She... More

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
