The Lenoir City Cracker Barrel is my 'home' Cracker Barrel consequently I have visited for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and sometimes just stopping in for a fruit cobbler. 98% of the time the food is excellent - hot when served and tasty. The wait staff and managers are always friendly.
My husband and I enjoyed a late lunch there today and we both had the meatloaf. Yep! it was good!
This location does good business because of the local draw and it is just off I-40. There are hotels nearby so when it is football time in TN - it will be crowded when we have a home game. They also have a large Sunday after church crowd. If you do go and have to be on the waiting list they seem to be quite accurate when they say it will be a 15 minute wait. Your name will be called (usually) within a few minutes of the promised wait time.
In my opinion, almost all of the Cracker Barrels serve good food. But I can promise you will experience Southern Hospitality when you visit the Cracker Barrel in Lenoir City, TN!
