Cracker Barrel seems to be good at serving average southern style food. Really wish they would improve their quality of food. Service was good as usual.

Saw Mill Gravy, hash brown casserole and Coca Cola cake are excellent. Pork chops were over cooked. Chicken tenders were not tender. Service was excellent. The cost was minimal. Enjoy the gift shop.

While traveling we visited this Cracker Barrel for dinner. The food and service was great. Cannot beat their chicken/dumplings and beans and greens. I would recommend this Cracker Barrel to other's.
