We stop at Cracker Barrels whenever we travel. Always get a good meal whatever time of day it is. All day breakfast menu, and great lunch and dinners. Today's hot roast beef sandwich was just what was needed after nine hours of driving.

This Cracker Barrel was just across I-25 from my hotel, so the location was great. Approach was a bit strange, as you have to negotiate a steep, narrow driveway in front of another hotel...RV drivers take note! Dinner was wonderful (sometimes you just need meat loaf), especially when my favorite Cracker Barrel side dish was available: Fried Apples!

The prices at Cracker Barrel are very modest, so it's not out-of-line that the food was pretty average and so was the service. As long as you know what to expect, you won't be disappointed.

This restaurant was right next to my hotel and it was late so here I came. I actually enjoyed it. The menu is value priced and I was surprised at the healthier options I could create. Don't get me wrong, the menu is heavy on comfort food and they have never met a food they can't fry. But I was... More

We are staying at a hotel down the road and placed an order to go. I ordered the fried chicken salad right off the menu and got grilled chicken. My husband ordered meatloaf with brown gravy and got no gravy. Cannot understand how an order can be so messed up when ordering straight from the menu with no "special" requests?!?!?!

We went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast on our last day in ABQ. Although it was extremely busy, it did not take us long for us to be seated, but during our break our boys (6 and 8) were occupied with playing checkers. I had the pumpkin spice pancakes with sunny side up eggs and turkey sausage, and everything was... More

I usually do not review an national chain, but this Cracker Barrel is different. While the menu was the same as other Cracker Barrels and the service was great, the real service was offered in the store. The cashier, Jana, was very friendly, simply outstanding and accommodating. The General Manager was also accommodating in packing our purchases for the trip... More

I have only been to one Cracker Barrel and it was in Missoula, but it was also very good. So we stopped here on our first night in the area. Glad we did; great service, quick food that was tasty and filling. No room for dessert with a reasonable price. I was glad we stopped.
