Traveling west bound. We didn't see a way to park rv due to road construction. Fast service as expected at 2:35pm weekday. Hostess wanted to seat us between two dirty tables even though there were only a couple other customers in the room. Eight dirty tables were still there when we left. The usual food as at other cracker barrel... More

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.

I have been a great fan of Cracker Barrel for many years and have visited the chain from Tennessee to California. The past few times have seen a decline in service, food quality and cleanliness. Was in Lubbock Texas a few weeks ago and was disappointed but went to Abilene Texas location today and that is the last time. Food... More

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.

Thank 2Fun2Travel2
