My family visited Cracker Barrell because of its convenient location on I-20. The atmosphere was typical of any Cracker Barrel with down home furnishings and cozy shopping space. The wait time was quite efficient; 10-15 minutes on a Sunday afternoon. Then, my 4-year-old starting crying because we would buy him a lollipop and that's when our visit went downhill. Our... More

We stopped here for dinner on our trip home to Dallas from Lubbock. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. I always love browsing the store too!

Amazing the meatloaf we good, served hot with 3 sides. Hungry from travel & stressed from truck traffic, we stopped to defuse and this was a good choice. Service with a smile, attentive wait staff. Crowded as expected at this time of day, the "host" was a bit pushy, but easily ignored. Value as Cracker Barrell usually is.......filled with Halloween... More

We actually ate here twice on our vacation (once coming, once going), and other than service being a little slow on our first visit, the Abilene Cracker Barrel is up to the chain's usual standards. It is very convenient both to I-20 and a number of hotels, the restrooms are clean, and our food was properly prepared and reasonably priced.... More

The breakfast steak the oldest grandson ordered arrived very well done (he had ordered medium well) He cut into it and saw this and we asked her to take it back. She apologized and... More

As with all Cracker Barrels, this place is ok. However, if you are looking for a great Sunday Meal...get the chicken on Sunday's. This is a must!
