“Tornado day at Cracker Barrel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

We arrived just as a tornado formed above Springdale. The management at Cracker Barrel was calm and efficient and escorted us all to the bathroom area where we waited until the winds subsided. We then had a lovely meal at Cracker Barrel and went home to tell all of the nice people about Cracker Barrel, and the staff who made potentially scary situation just another day on our trip! We were traveling with a teen-aged girl from another culture who had never been to Cracker Barrel before. We all loved our meals, and she got a taste of good, old-fashioned, down-home country cooking.

“Homey food...and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

I've been to a handful of Cracker Barrel's, and they all seem to offer the same thing...good homey food, large portions, & cheap price. I'm especially a fan of all-day breakfast joints. On this most recent visit, I had the new seasonal multi-berry pancakes with the usual breakfast sides. Yum!

There was a wait of 20 minutes (at least that is what we were told...but I think it only took 10 minutes or so to get a table), but there's plenty to look at in the shop while you wait for your name to be called. Most everything in the shop isn't really my style, but it's fun to look at. And the rocking chairs on the porch are always a good waiting option if the weather is nice.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

The biscuits and gravy are some of the best you'll find. We always have great service! Get their earlier in the morning for the best experience!

“Yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Love love love the biscuits. Why else would you go? Oh yes, the pot pie! And the fireplace. And all the neat old-timey 'antique' stuff on the walls bringing in the nice home-y feel that you always felt when you went to visit grandma and grandpa in the summertime... Why wouldn't you go? Service is usually good, value is good, so... I dunno, why not? :)

“Great Food as always!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

The food was delicious as always. The staff was great, and even though they were really busy, they were extremely organized.
