Cracker Barrel is always good and the best chicken and dumplins in town. The service is always fast and the food is hot.

Every time family comes into town they want to eat at Cracker Barrel. It's good food in a nice atmosphere. The portions are big. If you get a hamburger and like pickles on it, they only have sweet pickles. I love the breakfast served here the most.

This Cracker Barrel lives up to the standards of the company and we were provided with excellent service and delicious food. We always love looking for Cracker Barrel's in new cities if we aren't too familiar with the area. Like always, the food was served hot and made to order. We left completely satisfied.

Great atmosphere for singles and couples looking for a low key, down home eating place. Lots to look at in the store. Great comfort foods and their audiobook rental program makes the miles and miles of Texas fly by.

Just the usual good food and good friendly service. Nothing unusual other than it is always cold in Cracker barrels. Need to wear a coat inside regardless of temperature outside.

Close to our hotel, fast service. Enjoyed visiting the gift shop. I sometimes get bored with the cracker barrel menu, but they had a new fish dish that was awesome.

By far, one of the worst Cracker Barrels I have been to. The food was sub-par. The service was extremely terrible, especially for not being busy at the time I was there. I ordered my food, and 15 minutes later, was informed that they were out of that menu item, and I would have to make another selection... 15 minutes... More

Before the local car show/cruise in at Cabela's parking lot on Saturday night, I had time and planned to eat at the near by Cracker Barrel. It was a great choice, the food was good and the service was excellent. I wanted home cooking, not some Tex-Mex like every thing almost seems to be around Austin and Cracker Barrel, as... More

I love Cracker Barrel for 1. It's ambience- rocking chairs and checker boards on the patio, a huge open fireplace that's always got a warm, crackling fire going, and a super cute country store to shop in after your meal; 2. A great menu full of family style country comfort foods, including a section for anyone who is calorie conscious... More
