How can you not like Cracker Barrel! Cracker Barrel is right across from the parking lot from the Fairfield Inn in Council Bluffs, IA.

Great reliable meals. Nothing fancy but good grub. Cruised in after a long day of driving. Good food before bed.

I stopped there today with my bus group. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. They got us out within an hour. Food was as good as always.

Cracker Barrels are always good places to eat. The waitress we had in Council Bluffs, IA the night we ate there went above and beyond. The food was good but the waitress was great

Great place to get a wide selection of meals. Something to please everyone in a group of 7. The kids and adults too enjoyed the country store while waiting for our meal. Prices are reasonable and know one seemed disappointed with there meal.

This place was busy, but we lucked out and were seated immediately. Great service and food. Met the Manager, and he was very professional. Each of my sides on my breakfast seemed a little bigger than other times at Cracker Barrel.
