Going out to eat is a special treat for our family. So when we choose a restaurant, it has to offer great food, service, and atmosphere. Since our kids range from toddler up to teenagers, we also have to make sure that the restaurant offers several menu options.
A local favorite is Cracker Barrel. It’s been around for as long as I can remember, offering a variety of comfort food, inviting family atmosphere, and a great Old Country Store. They also have an amazing long porch that is furnished with several rocking chairs to relax after a filling meal or while you wait.
Did you know that the early Cracker Barrel stores sold gasoline? Yup. The founder, Dan Evins, started the stores when his family was in the oil business. I love how he modeled the stores after the country stores that he frequented as a child. His desire was to service traveling folks, but it soon became much more than he imagined. I love that Cracker Barrel is not a franchise and has kept true to its roots. Preserving history instead of trying to recreate it.
Finish with a yummy old-fashioned dessert like Double Chocolate Fudge Coca-Cola® Cake or Baked Apple Dumplin. No worries, I’m also drooling right now. 😉
