We went here for dinner while staying at a nearby family waterpark resort. We figured it had a good variety and would be quick. Well we were half right. I almost thing the menu for Cracker Barrels are too varied, but at any rate. We ordered, meatloaf for my wife, pancakes for my son and their sampler platter for myself. Well after 20-25 minutes our meals came out (no they weren't crowded, it was a Sunday evening). Well, part of them did. My wife's came out and my sons did, but my sampler came out with no meatloaf and no pinto beans. Then they told me they ran out of meatloaf, while I was staring at a plate full of it across from me. And for some unexplained reason I had a small bowl of extra chicken and dumplings.
So as I was asking where the rest of my meal was other waiters came from the back saying they found more meatloaf, and it appeared as did magically my beans. Well I took one bite of meatloaf and gave the balance to my wife, overpowered with green peppers. No biggy I still had country ham, Mac and cheese and pintos! So I ask for Texas Pete and are offered tobasco, uh no, we are in NC, where Texas Pete is the choice of hot sauces. I began with my Mac and cheese, bland and not warm. I move along to my country ham, whoa nelly. I know country ham is salty, but this was inedible. So on to my chicken and dumplings, or should I say dumplings with a couple pieces of bland overcooked chicken. The saving grade was the pintos, it was really the only thing I ate.
Now the ONLY reason it got an average is because my wife said she enjoyed her meal and my son devoured his pancakes. But this was it for me. I'll probably not be returning to a CB for a long, long time.
