“Basic Cracker Barrel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

If you have ever been to one, you know what to expect. Only complaint we had was that the biscuits we were served were one stage away from burned. However, the odds of getting the waitress back was slim to none. Rest of the food (dinner) was good and cooked well.

“Not so good this time”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

Well, the third time I sat down to the Country Boy Breakfast at Cracker Barrel, it was a huge disappointment. Ordered the steak medium, it came out well done, dry and tough. Server brought out another one, just as I was finishing the rest of the meal, and it was medium all right, but no flavor. Eggs were cold, hash brown casserole was cold, just not a good experience this time.

“Best food! Cozy fireplace! Friendly & outgoing staff!”

Love Cracker Barrel -always, but this one in Abilene, Texas was really great! Just a stone's throw from the Residence Inn Marriott where I stayed so couldn't have been more perfect. The cheerful atmosphere & people along with all the cute stuff in their gift shop was always a delight!

“Country Boy Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

Last two times at Cracker Barrel, I've had the Country Boy Breakfast for dinner -- sirloin steak, 3 eggs, grits, fried apples, potato casserole, biscuits and gravy. Steak (medium) has been surprisingly good, eggs cooked the way I ordered them (soft scrambled), and plenty of food for the hungry appetite. $8.95, I think it was. I prefer breakfast there to dinner items, but they offer plenty of options to choose from. Service is sometimes slow, but usually pleasant. I like the apple butter, which is available if you ask.
