Love Cracker Barrel. Always have. Great prices for a great quality and selection of items. Friendly staff and great location if you are staying at the La Quinta, simply walk across the Parking lot. Will keep eating her for years to come

We were seated after waiting 15 minutes. The waitress took a long time bringing our food. We had to ask more than once for straws and refills.

This is the 3rd time in a row where it took us about 2 hours to eat lunch. This time we had the usual, pancakes for one order and chicken dumplings for the other. We came in about 2:15PM, got seated about 2:25. They were busy hence the waitress was slow (which is understandable). We did not place order till... More

Service was a little slow. Training a new person. After that, it was fine. Great food. Good for the value. Can't beat it. We stopped here before when our son graduated from Navy boot camp. Good area.

It was nice to go with my family to Cracker Barrel. Service is great and the food is delicious! I tried the campfire chicken meal. It was so good, fresh and hot. It was wrapped in aluminum foil. I wish it was around all year long. I can never leave there without eating fried apples. It's out of this world!... More

We needed something that was affordable, but wanted to sit down and enjoy ourselves. This is the place. Perfect time to go at 7:45-8:30 it was not crowded and we got our food before I could play 2 games of the peg game that's at your table. My meal was $5.00 and I brought a biscuit home for later.

Had dinner here after a long day of sight seeing in Chicago. Food and service was great. I'd definitely eat here again if I was staying in the area.

So you're on a driving vacation and you want something other than fast food. Try Cracker Barrel. The staff here is very friendly, personable and efficient. We were here over the past weekend and it was only a short time to wait to be seated. Everything on the menu tastes great. I had the Cracker Barrel sampler and it was... More

I have never had a problem in this resturant. The food is always made the way you ask and the servers are very friendly. The only bad part is this place is always packed so you have to get there early or you'll wait forever.
