We visited the Cracker Barrel in San Marcos on a rainy Saturday morning and the place was packed with customers. We are pleased to identify the outstanding service we received from our waitress, Lucy B. Our order was spot on, the food was hot and Lucy checked back with us no less than 3 times to make sure everything was... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch on President's Day. This was the best Cracker Barrel I've ever eaten in. We eat at them frequently when travelling since their parking lots usually have space for RVs. Fantastic service- and they were BUSY!

We split the Breakfast Sampler and could not finish it. Love their grits, hash brown casserole and baked apples. The was a hardy breakfast served quickly. Service was good, and we always enjoy the shop. Cracker Barrel is a sure bet when you are on the road.

Requested the tenderloin dinner, but what I got was a two bit tender. See pic to understand the unusually small chickens they served. Needless to say, for the price, its not up to expectations. Service is good, not enough to make you want to eat somewhere with a better value.

This is the 2nd time we stopped by here for a dinner. Both times were because we all felt hungry after our shopping trip at San Marcos Outlet Mall & Outback was too full with a long line waiting for the tables. This place looks very nice with a small gift shop in front. Be prepared to wait quite a... More

The gravy is definitely different. I prefer simple. Overall, everything was fine. We would have appreciated a refill.

Friends recommended this restaurant. I haven't been to Cracker Barrel in over ten years but thought I'd give it a try. Ordered the chicken Caesar salad which came with tiny chicken pieces. Not a one was even half an inch in height and maybe three inches in length at most. I don't think they would have added up to 3... More

I dont care who you are, you probably have eaten at Cracker Barrel. This one - to me- tends to be a little above average. The service can be hit or miss, but that is true of most restaurants in San Marcos ( a lot of students are the servers- and sometimes they do not seem to care to much... More
