We ate here twice during our visit to Asheville and found it to be on a par with other CB outlets. This chain are always reliable for good tasting, home-style food. We had a dinner and a breakfast. The staff here were friendly and attentive and despite being very busy, the attention to cleanliness and customer service was paramount t.

We were quickly seated, food was excellent. Like all Cracker Barrels, a joy to eat at. Even though busy, we were served in a small amount of time.

We enjoyed the food, was glad to see there was not a crowd. We had gone several other places and they were very busy but not here. Food was good. Service could have been better. We were all distracted by the waitress huge holes in her ears. No earrings just huge holes that grossed us out and we could not... More

This is the second, and last, time I order the pot roast dinner. I really like CB, especially their many breakfast meals - served all day. But this visit I tried the pot roast, having not been over whelmed the last time I tried it. Ditto this time. It is fatty, grey looking and looks processed. Not at all appetizing.... More

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
