Southern style restaurant & country store Jul 04, 2015
The Cracker Barrel Old Country Store is a big chain of combined restaurant & gift shop in the USA. Founded in 1969, the theme is based on a Southern style cuisine (Southern comfort food or "down-home" country cooking) and decorated to resemble an old country store. Aside from the Southern style dining experience there are plenty of vintage items from the 1950's -1960's to gawk at, hanging on the walls and ceiling. A variety of replica vintage items can be purchased as well as a variety of candies and snack foods. Of course there are the signature rocking chairs lining the front face to relax in while waiting for a table or to relax in after the meal. They are for sale too.

Seen one Cracker Barrel and seen them all really, as they are basically the same everywhere. There may be some difference in the vintage items hanging around, but the layout is the same. There are many of them lining the US Interstate system, but they can be found in many cities and towns too. Cracker Barrel likes to pride itself on customer loyalty and it always shows, at least the ones I have visited over the years. It can be quite crowded on holidays like Thanksgiving or Independence Day, but the staff works hard to please the customers and I've never had a bad experience in terms of service or food, no matter how crowded it gets.

Nice. I should probably try every Cracker Barrel comes on my road :)

I'm planing for a road trip across the US next summer if the things were perfect.

True enough, Andy, as with most chains and one always hopes a particular franchise lives up to standards and even tries to go beyond. This one in Newport News usually goes beyond and aims to please with a smile.

Always a reliable stop for lunch on the road! Some are better than others, however.
