Greeted by a crackling fire on this cool, crisp day. Cracker Barrel delivers consistent quality, country cooking. Love my veggies. Today, the pinto beans were not so fresh but I had plenty of food without them anyway. Fresh cornbread & biscuits. Good service.

Ordered 6 piece tender dinner but only got four. Salad was brought after entree was delivered. One person's tenders were burned and inedible. Asked four times for butter and jelly. Then was overcharged $4 for each meal!! Total incompetence. We will not return.
