Like other Cracker Barrels, the atmosphere is country with many antique-looking items decorating the walls. Each Cracker Barrel restaurant also houses a country store. Many of the restaurant decorations can be purchased in the store. The store also sells postcards, souvenirs, seasonal items, and more.
Now, back to the food. There are two different menus at Cracker Barrel—breakfast and lunch/dinner. My husband and I always eat breakfast when we go to a Cracker Barrel, so I’ll focus on breakfast. For people who prefer to eat a light breakfast, there are "coffee treats" such as muffins, which start at $1.49. The prices range up to $7.99 for the Country Boy breakfast, which includes too many items to mention.
The menu features eggs, a wide variety of different kinds of pancakes, French toast, gravy and biscuits, and cereal/fruit. Unlike other restaurants, the food at Cracker Barrel is not greasy and the eggs are not runny.
The service at Cracker Barrel was quick and the waitress returned many times to refill our coffee and check on us. Also, the restaurant and restrooms were spotless.
Cracker Barrel is a place you can feel comfortable taking small children to. There is a kid’s menu and take out is also available. I guess my only complaint about Cracker Barrel is that it’s bad for diets!
