Always have good food, reasonably priced. Like shopping in their country store. We always look for a Cracker Barrel when traveling.

One of the nice things about Cracker Barrel is that you get what you expect with no surprises. Menus and decor are the same everywhere. You can get breakfast anytime. Food is good but not outstanding. And you can peruse neat and nostalgic signs and items.

It's Cracker Barrel - what more is there to say? Everything is exactly as it should be, the store smells exactly like every Cracker Barrel store in the entire USA, and the food tastes exactly like it should. Cracker Barrel tastes like a happy childhood!

This Cracker Barrel is a good stopover for a good and filling meal. The service was great, the environment comfortable and the food was good. It's just off the interstate, so it's easy to stop for a quick meal.

This is a good place for a family meal. I personally think there are too many carbs and not enough greens/vegetables on the menu. My grandson loved it, and cleaned his plate, and was looking for seconcs.

Always look for a Cracker Barrel when we are on the road traveling. You can always expect a good selection and a good meal here. Food is always hot and seasoned just right and I also enjoy shopping for seasonal décor items at the front.
