“Service and Food has been slidding”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

We have noticed a pattern with most CB's around the country when we travel that the service has gone down hill and the food quality has dropped as well. Food serving temperatures have been below acceptable as well. The only reason they did not get a 1 star is that would put them on the same level as IHOP and they are better than IHOP.

“Breakfast at Cracker Barrel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

Very consistent with any Cracker Barrel you've been to. Had breakfast there and wasn't disappointed.

“Convenient Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

Cracker Barrel in Buda is a convenient place to eat if you are traveling between Austin and San Antonio. Easy access on and off the freeway, and a nice break in your trip.

If you like the Cracker Barrel chain, you'll like the one in Buda. Same delicious menu and high quality food, with very friendly, professional service.

“Like Mc Donalds but on a grander scale.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

One has to love Cracker Barrel, me I like it but prefer a smaller venue when I am eating Breakfast. The food was prepared and served hot, big plus when eating sunny side up eggs and ham. The wait is what kills it for me at a Cracker Barrel. If they did not have rockers out front, this would be a no go for me, but hey, the wife likes it so remember the golden rule: "Happy Wife, Happy Life".

The store is also a good diversion for keeping you from having the feeling that you just joined the Army and waiting for a Physical or watch people eat ice cream at a Baskin and Robins while you stand there with a buzzer of a number in your hand starving to death. Go but you better be prepared to wait. Having said that, the reason you wait is folks love Cracker Barrel's. What can say that any more than holding one of the buzzing plates or a number waiting for someone to say; Mr. Pig, your table is ready and watch the reactions on the faces of the diner's wanting to see this "Mr. Pig" guy. Yep, that's me. LOL. You should see the faces. My wife hates when I sign in as Mr. Pig. ME I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!

“First timer - not impressed and probably won't return”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

They should have had more staff on hand to handle the crowd. Our server didn't know the menu and actually had other customers walk out on her.
