This is a good Cracker Barrel franchise. The food quality served is up to the Cracker Barrel standard. Service can be hit and miss, but generally good.

Service was great even with a crowd. Biscuits were fresh and tasty. BUT the roast beef was almost inedible, mostly fat, unusual for Cracker Barrel.

Everything we ordered came out just right and tasted great. We got the house salad with ranch, a bowl of vegetable soup, BLT with egg over easy, and chicken and dumplings with mac & cheese and fried okra. We also had plenty of biscuits and corn muffins.

Nothing like dependable delicious Cracker Barrel when you drive the Interstate all day! Can't beat the dependability, reasonable prices, basic good hot food and a fantastic gift shop to browse! Abingdon Cracker Barrel is great!
