There's not a Cracker Barrel near us, but we tend to eat there often when we're out and about. I absolutely hate that they put meat flavorings in just about everything. Ick!!
I do love their dumplings and their fried shrimp. . . . and their salads with bleu cheese dressing! My in-laws eat out every meal every day. About the only time they'll eat at home is if they're sick or the weather is too horrible to get out of the house. They eat at Cracker Barrel all the time.
DH and I used to go to the same local restaurant every Monday night, and the waitress would have our drinks waiting for us when we arrived. She also knew that I liked everything well done, and DH ate everything plain.
