Friends recommended this restaurant. I haven't been to Cracker Barrel in over ten years but thought I'd give it a try. Ordered the chicken Caesar salad which came with tiny chicken pieces. Not a one was even half an inch in height and maybe three inches in length at most. I don't think they would have added up to 3... More

I dont care who you are, you probably have eaten at Cracker Barrel. This one - to me- tends to be a little above average. The service can be hit or miss, but that is true of most restaurants in San Marcos ( a lot of students are the servers- and sometimes they do not seem to care to much... More

The hidden treasure at Cracker Barrel is the "Grandma's Breakfast"! One less pancake than the "Mama's", but it adds their hash-brown casserole or apples and a better meat option!!!

Travelling through area, stopped for a meal. My husband likes to stop for their all day breakfast. I was ready for a lunch (Swiss steak today). Service was good. In and out in no time. Always a good stop at a Cracker Barrel.

I know it is Cracker barrel but when I'm doing road trips I generally like a good affordable breakfast. I tend to get the Old timers breakfast or if I'm doing a lunch/dinner the Chicken and dumplings platter with sweet potato's. Service is fast, food is good for what you are ordering and staff is consistently very good across the... More

Cracker Barrel is conveniently located in the outlets area of San Marcos. The place is nicely decorated with a typical country-looking style. It has an interesting shop where you can buy souvenirs or other interesting stuff (mainly for kids), which gives the restaurant a nice family atmosphere. Service is good although a bit messy in terms of organization/logistics but food... More

It was just so easy to slip over and grab some lunch while shopping. The food is always good with lots of variety and the service was exceptional. We tried the ruben sandwich and the meatloaf. Both were wonderful. We got in and out in a timely manner and went right back to shopping.
