Stopped there last week while on way to Texas. Snow all the way from south side of Chicago. Getting tired and saw the sign for our favorite restaurant while traveling. Wife ordered country fried steak with slaw , green beans and corn. I ordered meat loaf, green beans, corn and okra. Our meals were very good but here is the... More

The food was typical for this franchise. The waitresses were super! I have a tree nut allergy and the staff went above and beyond to prevent any cross contamination, without complaint. They informed me they were changing the oil for our fish, just in case. I really appreciated the thoughtfulness.

We don't go there much anymore, we use to, but the service is so slow, we just can't wait that long. The food is ok, but it also seems as though the quality is not as good, I had to return my meal, not cooked all the way..

We always eat at Cracker Barrel when we're on the road. We had great service and a good home style meal. Travis was our waiter. He was professional and efficient. This one did not disappoint!

This is our go to place for comfort food. Whether it's for breakfast or dinner, they never disappoint. If you have a problem, the manager will do what it takes to make the customer leave satisfied. Highly recommend.
