Chicken n' Dumplins **
Each day we start with "the best of the breast" chicken tenderloins and our freshly prepared dumplins. Both are slow simmered in our own chicken stock right in our kitchens.
Meatloaf
A thick slice of our special recipe Meatloaf made with tomatoes, onions and green peppers.
Country Fried Steak **
A generous portion of our USDA Choice steak breaded and deep fried, topped with Sawmill Gravy.
10 Oz. Rib Eye Steak *
Our thick-cut USDA Choice rib eye is aged 28 days for exceptional tenderness and flavor, lightly seasoned and grilled to order. Enjoy it with a House Salad and Baked Potato in place of your three sides.

I was traveling solo on this trip. On my way back to Florida, I stopped at the Cracker Barrel in Athens, AL for breakfast. I was seated right away by a hostess that may have been ready for her break. People are more or less...More

Love their food anytime, loved to shop. The only draw back is that it is so cold you can’t enjoy. I may have to quit going for that reason.

I have found Cracker Barrel to be great no matter which one you go to. This one was no exception. Breakfast is always especially good. The pancakes are always great and the service is always quick and courteous.

Most Cracker Barrel's have the same menu, so service is what differentiates between locations. This Cracker Barrel definitely has the local feel, from the long-time wait staff to the people hanging out on the front porch. Service was very friendly. We got what we ordered...More
