A nice break from the road

Cracker Barrel is always a dependable place to eat when you are traveling on the road. I've been to many across the country, however I have always found the one off I-80 in Mt. Arlington exceptionally friendly and inviting. Kathy, the store greeter seems to remember us every time we visit. I've... read more

What can ya say about Cracker Barrel, breakfast is by far the best. Country style eating is always great.

Nice surprise to find this Cracker Barrel in NJ. Close to hotels. The food was good, but staff wasn't as fast or friendly as I've seen at other Cracker Barrel's. But glad to have it in this location

Stopped in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and the reason all prices. The place was full for a week day and my wife and I were so pleased that we came the next day for breakfast. All meals we had were very tasty and the service was very good. The waitress was friendly... More

This Cracker Barrell has become a regular stop for travels that take us along Rt. 80 in New Jersey. All the regular comfort food that this chain always offers, and the country store. Staff at this cracker barrel is particularly nice, and it is always a quick in-and-out (Although we admittedly almost always get there for an early breakfast).

We frequent Cracker Barrel when we're in the area, and they never disappoint. It's basic diner-type food with a southern lean, and especially good breakfasts. Overall, you can't go wrong with anything you order here. My only gripe is that you have to wait in line to pay, which is annoying when you just want to leave. Give them a... More

The wait time is lengthy depending on the time and day of the week but it is worth it. Staff is friendly and can make recommendations if you are unsure of the food choices. The staff makes you feel at home and are always carrying a smile on their face.

Everybody raved about Cracker Barrels however it was not my type of menu. It was nice and different but the menu was not to my liking. It wasn't bad just not my taste.

I did take out as was in the hotel next door and by myself. I have never eaten at a Cracker Barrel and was overwhelmed at the choice of entrees. After 5 minutes I put my order in "to go" and as busy as the restaurant was I was pleasantly surprised, it took only about 15 minutes. I would say... More
