Had diner at the Cracker Barrel in Bowling Green. The place was very busy, but they moved the seating along at a very fast rate. The menu was typical Cracker Barrel. Food may not be gourmet but is always very good. A nice to place to eat.

We frequently stop at Cracker Barrel when traveling. The food was very good and service was good. There was no waiting to get a table. This is a convenient location to I-65.
