Anyone else love Cracker Barrel?

I hate corporate food as much as any body, but I have a soft spot for Cracker Barrel. For some reason, at close to one in the morning, I just can't stop thinking about cracker barrel. Any one else love this restaurant? I know, it's a Disneyland version of the south, but I love it.

From the frosty mugs of root beer, to the chicken and dumplings, to nearly everything else there, I love Cracker Barrel. I am just a Florida cracker in a barrel, in cracker barrel. It is the best restaurant, I just wish there was one close to where I live.

Anyone else have any opinion on this glorious restaurant? Feel free to share your horror stories too, this doesn't all have to be Cracker Barrel love stories, but I have nothing but good memories of that restaurant, so in my opinion, it's golden. I used to stop at multiple cracker barrels on the drive up to Alabama. Now that's a nice route.

Are you a recent purchaser of a CB franchise? A lot of accolades for just a customer. Maybe you are getting ready to point towards the CB facebook page> Please don't if that's the goal here.

And to add, the food is crap, made in buckets and also ordered in bulk from HQ.

I prefer fresh, made daily and with ingredients I can pronounce, recognize and spell.

But hey, that's only my opinion.

I don't own a cracker barrel, and I will admit it's crap food, but for crap food, it's decent crap food. And I guess living in an area without one around makes you want something more. I am not a shill, but it's a good question. You can never trust anyone these days. But I genuinely like the food there. It's consistently mediocre. I guess P.T. Barnum was right. There's a sucker born every minute, and for bland, uninspired southern grub, I'm that sucker. But Cracker Barrel isn't THAT bad. I mean, there has to be someone besides me who understands. I mean, it's not a five star restaurant, but it isn't like, as bad as Dennys. Atleast 2 and a half stars, but I'd say a solid 3 stars. It's a decent meal if you're on the road.

I'm a VERY VERY good cook and I pride myself on perfecting everything that I love to eat so I never have to go out because mine is always better, so I like to eat at places that are just easy for convenience cuz if I want it to be really good I have to make it myself.......hehehe what can I say?

Yes! The place rocks. I have been to one three times in one trip to New England and I still dream of the place. If I lived near one I would go through the whole menu, and thanks to your thread, I will be thinking about the place all week.

Ughh. Why'd you have to post pictures? It's two thirty. The only place I can get a country fried steak around here at this hour is Dennys, and I'd sooner die than eat there. SOO hungry. Makes me wish there was a technology to pirate food over the internet. I'd pirate cracker barrel torrents all day long, and be a 300 pound fattie, instead of a one hundred and thirty pound dale gribblesque stick man.

I actually really feel sorry for people that think Cracker Barrel is good food.

I shudder to think what you ate as a child growing up.

Quarter pounders with cheese.


There was no Cracker barrel for single-mom to take us to.

I think that Cracker Barrel should serve the fine citizens of America by going nationwide.

They could take over the dead malls and just open giant Cracker Barrel's.

I thought you were talking about the Cracker Barrel cheese, I do love that, and it's taste in pretty unique.

How are the Reuben's - there is one about 10 miles from me but never stopped in.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

Breakfast food is my weakness. Well, one of them anyway. I think Cracker Barrel is ok, though personally if I'm traveling I prefer Bob Evans. I'm not a huge fan of the Cracker Barrel "sawmill gravy" which to me tastes like paste. Gotta have some biscuits & gravy for road breakfast and Bob Evans has some good B&G. The little out of the way diners can really be awesome, but it's a crapshoot. They can also be horrible.

It just depends upon how adventuresome we feel. At least at Cracker barrel, you know what you're going to get and for me it's a reasonably good breakfast.

CB does have a nice ambiance, especially when it's cool enough for them to have the fireplace going.
