Very disappointed. Ate breakfast here this morning and it tasted awful. We ate it anyway as we wasted 40 minutes waiting 😳 Won't be back.

Cracker Barrel staff always meets us at the door with a happy face and a warm welcome. The food comes as ordered and delicious. And the store has such great items available for purchase. Lisa was our server and she knows her job and does it well. She is a gem for the Abilene Cracker Barrel.

This is on of our favorite places to eat after church on Sunday afternoon. The menu is so varied it's hard to make a decision. My favorite is the Sunday special which includes two generous chicken breasts fried to perfection.

The kids at off the breakfast menu and satisfied - how hard is it to cook pancakes and eggs? The roast beef was not taasty,... More
