This was our second trip on this route and intentionally stopped at this Cracker Barrel again. The food is great and the service is superb.

Good country down home cooking is what you'll find here. The service was fast and given with a smile.

Consistence Cracker Barrel food. Always good. I just had a standard egg and biscuit breakfast and it was good. The service was really slow which was surprising as they weren't very busy. It took almost 45 minutes to get our food. Not sure what that was all about.

Initial service was slow but attentive after she actually acknowledged my presence. Food was average, felt the ham was dry and the biscuits were hard. Ok for Cracker Barrel but nothing special tonight.

I have eaten at several Cracker Barrels around the country. They are pretty consistent in quality, therefore a safe bet in a strange place. I'm an old country boy, so this one being available locally gives me an option when good ole southern food sounds right. Like all of them, this one is not the choice when you are looking... More

One of my favorite places to eat on the road. Friendly, efficient staff, great atmosphere, and good home-style food. Always fun to walk around the large gift shop.

As usual I always love to eat at Cracker Barrel. I have never been disappointed ever since we went to our Cracker Barrel in Nashville, TN while on vacation. We couldn't wait for them to open a Cracker Barrel in TX. Now I spend most of my time in AZ and they don't have very many in the Phoenix area....hint,hint

Extensive breakfast menu with some healthier choices that I could have made but I chose the smoky breakfast with sausage that was greasy and not quite done. The gravy was too thick and sticky but the biscuits were good as was the apple butter.

Not much to say about Cracker Barrel; it was good as expected. The server was very nice and provided an impeccable service.
