Being from the South, I know what to expect when it comes to hardy, fried Southern Cuisine. And thus, I love Cracker Barrell. When we first arrived, the place was packed. The nice thing about Cracker Barrell is that they are quick to put your name on the list giving your party ample time to browse around their "Country Store" (and spend more more money as we did).

Their Country Store is a hodge-podge of unique gifts and foods that are fun for the whole family to browse. They have everything from seasonal merchandise - Halloween and Thanksgiving were dominate, although they already have Christmas stuff out too. They also have all kinds of notalgic memorabilia like Coco-Cola and candy. I found myself looking at the nostalic candy a lot saying things like "remember these?" or "I haven't had these in years!".

It took about 15 minutes to be seated. My biggest complaint about this visit was not the food, it was the crazy waitress. Having ordered coffee, she brought the cups and the pot and when she poored it was all over the table. Over the course of the meal, it was obvious that she did not have the patience to serve us promperly and was in too big of hurry to cater to our needs. We had considered ordering some cobbler for dessert, but she never gave us a chance. At the end of the meal, she left the bill without a simple thank you to return 10 mins later with another bill. The funny thing is that the second bill was for another table that did not have anything similar to our meal. It was frustrating to say the least. But we all got a good laugh out of her antics.

I would suggest checking this one out, especially if you are looking for some good Southern based foods. We had catfish, roast beef, and mash pototoes - which were all excellent. The kids will love the Country Store. Just hope you don't get the crazy waitress!
