The food is good, the service was excellent, and the store is always stocked with goodies to choose from. I always recommend splitting a dessert as you will never be disappointed. Veggie soup was good and the salad excellent.

Cracker Barrel is always a great place to shop and eat. Great food. Friendly service. "Country Cooking." I love the Country Boy breakfast that is served all through the day.

I was there shortly after they opened. The food was fine, but the service was slow from my waitress. Several groups came in after I did, with a different waitress, and they all got their food before I did.

We enjoyed a Saturday breakfast with our son and his family. There is something on the menu for everyone. Start with a plate of fresh baked biscuits served with butter and jelly. I enjoyed the Country Boy Breakfast with sirloin steak. The steak was the same size that many places serve as the steak dinner. It was cooked to perfection,... More

A lot of choice in food (maybe too much!) hard to choose, I would have loved to try a breakfeast in the evening, but I prefered having chicken and corn. It was very good and nice portions. Service was good but that's all, and nice decoration.

Great value, good food and fast service. I think that is all you need. Sure it s not a five star restaurant and does not sell alcohol. But if you want good food reasonably priced, Cracker Barrel is a solid choice. Waco is a college town with great Tex Mex...but if you want Southern Comfort...come here!

Thought sweet potato would have been hot and steamy with cinnamon and butter but it was not. Disappointed. They did take a long time to serve our food around 8... More

We have come to count on Cracker Barrel wherever we go and even at home. But over past year we have experienced a decline in quality of food at our local Cracker Barrel. Had to write corporate regarding our most recent visit. Spoke with Mgr. or Asst Mgr. and didn't feel as if he was engaged in conversation. Sure they... More
