Cracker Barrel

You get what you pay for at Cracker Barrel. It's just good "home cooking" type of food, reasonably fast with good service and a decent price. Consistency is key too. There are many Cracker Barrels all over and you can be pretty sure that they'll all be the same.

My friend Tommy and I, longing for just some simple comfort food, ate at Cracker Barrel in Sanford recently. We had good service, good food, and at a good price, in a warm atmosphere. No complaints, we got what we paid for.

Tommy ordered the Chicken-Fried Steak--how can you go wrong with something like that covered in country gravy, served with mashed potatoes, baked apples and coleslaw. It was just plain old good. Not to fancy, not gourmet, just good old stick-to-your-ribs food.

I had Fried Catfish served with rice pilaf and coleslaw. Of course tartar sauce as well. It was good. Our meals also came with biscuits and cornbread muffins. We had good food, a nice atmosphere, and friendly service. What more could we ask for? And, it was a value. 'Nuff said!
