Had a burger, which was fine but unremarkable and in a bun that was just blah. Fries were okay, biscuits were very good. What else can you say about a Cracker Barrel except I can't believe they sell the crap they have in the storefront.

My mother loves going here! The chicken and dumplings are her favorite but I kind of mix it up. Last time I was there it was chicken cooked in apple juice and pieces. Wow - I have got to figure out how to make that...More

I was basically ignored at the wait stand except for the cashier. Then Rachel gave me attitude. Sage was a great waitress, but not sure of how much training she's had for this job. The lady that seemed to be the manager was too busy...More
