If you’re looking for biscuits and gravy, they’ve got it. If you want waffles, you’re going to have to decide from a long list. Their Georgia Peach pancakes (or something like that) were excellent! Even with all the meat choices, my vegetarian partner was able to make it out of that place without touching any animals to his lips. Yahoo! The gift shop is quaint, and if you manage to not get distracted on the way in (their restaurant is past the gauntlet of gifts and gadgets), you’ll certainly meander past all the great holiday trinkets and speciality food items to bring home to the loved ones. Again, another place to snag those ever-so-wonderful souvenirs of your trip to Orlando and Florida in general. I don’t think they stock any alligator foot key chains or alligator teeth snow globes, but you can pick those up just down the street, at one of the millions of tacky souvenir shops along your way.
Cracker Barrel restaurants are identical up and down the Florida state and are definitely one of your best bang-for-your-buck-type eateries.

If this sounds as though I’m being negative please let me clarify. While you wait for your table you can rock in the row of very comfortable rocking chairs on the covered porch. While you are decompressing, the kids can divert themselves with puzzles on the dining tables or compete playing checkers nearby. Cracking fires in huge fireplaces staves off winter chills.
If you haven't indulged in traditional Southern cooking here's your chance to give it a safe try. Grits, greens, country ham and lots of other tempting treats. If you order the fried apples I promise you won't be disappointed. Breakfast is served throughout the day and the Sunrise Sampler is my personal recommendation. You won't go away hungry and you'll be back for more.
If you enjoy taped books while driving the Cracker Barrel has a type of check out library where you can buy/rent a tape and turn it in at a location up the road. Clever.
One last hint - The South is the land of iced tea but you must specify - sweetened or unsweetened. If you don't the assumption is SWEETENED.
