We went here after a CUBS spring training game; very close proximity. The lemon trout and the shrimp were both good; we love choosing 3 sides of veggies. The price is right too. All was very tasty and served within a reasonable time period.

Hubby and I went for their Sunday chicken dinner and were very satisfied. Had a waitress named Ashley and she was very pleasant and efficient. She had no problems with all of our requests, like bring the bread out before dinner and serve my husbands side first. Overall a good meal.

Several of us had just finished a tour at Mesa Flacon Field and headed for this Cracker Barrel for lunch. They were out of greens. The spicy catfish fillet was not spicy, however it was very moist. When I requested steak fry's to replace the non-existent greens, I received a small plate with 10 overdone, cold frys from the bottom... More

Growing up in the Midwest; Cracker Barrel was a staple of our weekends after church. I crave the sourdough bread, the cinnamon apples and the hashbrown casserole (only my stepmom has better hashbrown casserole!). I loved the "old country store" appeal as well as trying to figure out the uses for the various implements hung on the walls. We go... More

They have hearty portions, the breakfasts are pretty good. But what I love is there lunch and dinner menu. Best homemade meatloaf, they offer chicken pot pie, baked chicken. The list goes on and on. Another Great feature is 22 side dishes to choose from with all your meals. Turn turnip greens, in a broth with shredded pork, homemade mashed... More

Cracker Barrel is one of our favorites at home and when we travel. This one on Dobson Road is located approximately 17 minutes from the Holiday Inn & Suites (we are not impressed with the restaurant in the hotel). Cracker Barrel is located near shopping and amenities and on this occasion we had breakfast at Cracker Barrel. Our server was... More

This Cracker Barrel is right near the huge Bass Pro Shop in a developing shopping complex. Greeted and seated upon entering thru the gift shop. The menu goes on forever! Watch out because your eyes will be bigger than your stomach! But you can always take the leftovers home. Try the biscuits, corn bread, grits, greens w/ bacon, and maybe... More
