No matter what Cracker Barrell we visit, the food is always great and the staff friendly. This Cracker Barrell was no exception. The roast beef was tender and delicious and the fried shrimp in buttermilk batter was sweet and good. The gift shop is always a nice place to visit too!

Ate here today as a party of 8. We found the service to be impeccable. We were treated very well. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the fried chicken special today. I had Uncle Hershel's Breakfast and it was good. I do feel like the gravy has changed over the years and I don't enjoy as much. The gravy is to... More

It seems not matter where you go, if you stop at a Cracker Barrel you will get the same quality food at a reasonable price. If you like stick to your ribs food. This is the place. Always friendly

Had a wonderful breakfast-at-dinner time with my family to celebrate a special occasion. It took a while to be seated, but has fast friendly service. Food was good. Good country cooking. Plenty of parking, and very convenient to I-40. Have visited this location frequently. Better than average service this time around. Biscuits also better than usual. Thanks!

Food was great. The hash brown casserole was the best thing on my plate! Warm syrup in lil bottles was nice over biscuits. Service was good even though they were super busy. Will come again.

I am not really a Cracker Barrel Fan but I really enjoyed my breakfast there this morning. I wanted an omelet and after searching the menu over three times I finally asked the waitress. Yes they have them but for some reason they are not listed on the menu. Delicious Biscuits and Tasty Syrup.

Never disappointed in food at Cracker Barrel but this time our service wasn't too good. Everyone else seemed to have attentive wait staff but us. Every location is different but food is good home style choices.
