“Homestyle cooking at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

The food here is just like Mama made...if Mama cooks like Paula Deen. Everything seems to be cooked in butter, shortening or some other form of fat...but it sure takes good. You can still get some low calorie options though. My favorite is the grilled chicken tenderloins at 170 calories for the 4 tenderloins. Add some breen beans and carrots for a low carb meal. I opt for the sweet potato casserole (only available on Thursday) which is not low calorie...probably close to 300 calories per serving...but a truly southern and delicious side. No matter what you choose, you are sure to be happy with the flavor and also with the final check. This is one of the most reasonably priced restaurants around. Easy access from 2 major highways and close to several hotels, it is a traveller's paradise.

I love that you can order breakfast anytime. The food, value and service is always exceptional. I have never had a bad meal at any Cracker barrel in any city or state

“Another great meal at a Cracker Barrel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

We had tried a Cracker Barrel in Pigeon Forge, TN enjoyed it and on our way back to Atlanta airport we stopped at Cracker Barrel in Kennesaw. Would it be as good as the last one? The answer was a resounding yes. It was incredibly busy but I guess on a Sunday lunchtime it was bound to be. We waited about 10 minutes to get a table but filled the time looking around the store so the time passed quickly. Our meal was delicious and I particularly loved the cornbread. Our server apologised for the long delay in getting the food to us and in normal circumstances that would have been fine but it was a concern as we knew we had an international flight to catch. Sadly we didn't have time for a pudding... Well done to Cracker Barrel for providing us with a great meal at a great price.

“What Happened to the Coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

I am assuming that all Cracker Barrel restaurants have gone to a new coffee , not just Kennesaw and Cartersville. In the past the coffee was excellent with good coffee taste. Lately, I have visited a couple of Cracker Barrels in the area and the coffee has a washed out coffee taste or no coffee flavor at all. I have complained to the servers on these occasions to ask their management to change it back to the original coffee. No doubt they are trying to cut corners like most other restaurants and stores by substituting an inferior product or raising the price. For coffee lovers who especially like to go there for breakfast, this could be a game changer for this usually good restaurant chain (IMO)
