Good Food, Prompt Service, when you are finally seated

I've eaten breakfast at this location many times - both when I didn't live in the area and now that I do. On the weekends, this is a tough place to walk up and sit down. There is usually a wait, though they do "keep it moving". The staff seems knowledgeable - I can tell because I order... read more

This restaurant is located very near the Six Flags Great America entrance and is always packed, especially on weekends. It's a terrific "comfort food" kind of menu stocked with a wide variety of American favorites. There is something for every member of the family on this menu. If you've never visited a Cracker Barrel, expect to walk through a store... More

You'll get the same service at every cracker barrel and that's a good think. Very homey and comfortable. Nothing fancy on the food but tastes good and is filling.

My husband and I took our grandson Age 17 for a night out at this Cracker Barrel. We had delicious food and great, great service. Michael N was our server and he did an excellent job. He was polite, patient and helped us decide what to order. Our food was served hot and fresh. Michael also checked on us often... More

Definitely the best breakfast food around, but be prepared for a long wait in a crowded store area with lots of kitsch. Very friendly servers make it all better once you are seated.

CB is the best breakfast spot to fill up before a long day at GA and fright fest. Plus the prices can't be beat. Servers are young and appear rushed but they don't rush you out so that's a good thing. Thought I'd have to get my Starbucks fix but the coffee was way better than average. Biscuits, gravy and...

Immediate seating, Immediate service, Hot & delicious food quickly. All the wait staff were friendly & Johnny-on-the spots anticipating any need customers had ahead of time. I'd recommend this Cracker Barrel without hesitation. Great job to all the staff from front-line to the cook staff. You keep up the great work!

Contrary to popular belief all Cracker Barrels are not the same. No seasoning on food. Service was not good and there was only a few customers in the restaurant. Would definitely NOT visit this location again.

Not all Cracker Barrel restaurants are the same. The food does vary and so does the service. At this particular location, we were very pleased with our dinner. Our granddaughter just graduated from Navy boot camp at nearby Great Lakes. This was the place she chose to have her first restaurant meal since she arrived in that area nearly two... More
