Review of Cracker Barrel

Cracker Barrel

Reviewed July 13, 2013

The Cracker Barrel is a known quantity. Southern style of cooking, reasonable prices, and mediocre quality. The offerings for a vegetarian are dismal, since even many of the vegetables have meat components and the corn muffins are seasoned with bacon grease. Our bill was small, which was nice, and the restaurant was directly across the parking lot from the Microtel Inn. But once was enough for us.

I have never been disappointed by breakfast at a Cracker Barrel and this one in Elkhart left everyone smiling. My fifteen year old had pancakes with baked apples, which were thick and plenty. My wife had the Old Timer's breakfast with bacon that was crisp and crunchy (not greasy). I enjoyed the multi-berry pancake breakfast, filled with blueberries and topped with strawberry slices. And instead of maple syrup, they offered raspberry. Yummy and refreshing. The strawberry dishes come out in spring, and it's a treat. Our oldest son chose a cheeseburger and it was disappointing. The burger seemed bland, even with melted cheese, and they offered sweet pickles instead of dill. It just confirms my lunch experiences at Cracker Barrel. Still, you can't beat Cracker Barrel for ambiance. Our younger boy was at a separate table with his soccer friends, and they went walking around while waiting to be served and had competitive checkers. They wouldn't play checkers at home, but had a ball here. And when we left, there were dads and boys in rockers on the long front porch, waiting to be called, rocking away. Cool!

We stopped for breakfast before our 5 hour ride home. The food was good but our server was unable to keep up.

I love a good, consistant restaurant and this fits the bill. There's nothing quite as nice as being greeted by a friendly waitstaff. Cracker Barrel seems to find some really good hostesses and waitresses. The food was hot and yummy, same as always. We especially love their accomodation of those of us on low-carb diets.
