Good for breakfast

I don't get to Cracker Barrel often, but I do love their hash brown casserole yum. Eggs, bacon, biscuits, grits, hash browns..all with two boxes of chocolate milk which brings back some memories of grade school lunchtime.

The food is likely from Sysco's lowest tier. The gravy is tasteless lard, turkey is dry, the salad was wilted, the fruit cobbler was gelatinous and there lacks an adult beverage menu. Taking a gander at the other diners you'll notice the blue-haired crowd is their target market.

We had dinner in the Cracker Barrel in Portland, Maine and it was grand. The food, atmosphere, and service was above normal. We had a nice quiet dinner in nicely decorated restaurant.

I love Cracker Barrel. But the northern most states have a hard time recreating the yummy southern food it is known for. Dried out meats, bland sausage gravy. Can't beat those hash brown casseroles or apples!

Great place for comfort food and breakfast for dinner. Nothing fancy but it is delicious. I find the food and service to be very consistent every time we go there. I have a blog post on our most recent visit. http://havebudgetwilltravel.blogspot.com/2015/03/cracker-barrel-restaurant-review-south.html

We always enjoy a good meal for a reasonable price and staff were pleasant. Conveniently located across from Maine Mall and DoubleTree by Hilton is next door.
