Breakfasts ok but lunch and dinner are just plain ordinary and bland. Menu choices are limited and dinner portions were small. Getting through the store to the dining area can be problematic.

My wife and I stopped here for supper on our way to a convention in Rosemont, IL. As usual, we split a 4-veggie plate and had water to drink.

I love Cracker Barrel vegetable plates. I am not big on eating meat so I love to find a Restaurant that will serve vegies.

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.
