I know some people really like Cracker Barrel - but man their food is greasy... I think there are better places for breakfast.

LOL At the end of the day traditional breakfast is supposed to be greasy.
Make no mistake about it Bacon, eggs, sausage, grits, pan cakes and biscuits are greasy foods!



My thoughts exactly ! How else is breakfast supposed to be cooked?? If it's greasy, it's good ! [emoticon]

The CB near us has RV/bus parking but those spots ALWAYS have small cars in the spots for some reason?? It's not like they are closer to the door...

NOW... IF Waffle House had RV parking... ! ! [emoticon]

Cracker Barrel is SOUTHERN cooking. Northerners typically prefer blander, less seasoned food (I know, because I grew up in Michigan with that kind of fare). Accept CB for what it is. If you don't like it, don't eat there -- simple as that.

I've been all over the south, and if I were from the South and you said that Cracker Barrel is Southern Cooking, I'd be up in yawl's face. Franchise food.

I was down south and the waitress said "Grits or Hash Browns"
I answered Grits
The other Good old boys at the table announced that I was NOT a true northern Yankee.

I actualy like a large variety of food including SOUTHERN And Most of what CB serves.. The strange thing is I'm a big boy I like a plate FULL of food. and in a CB I keep looking at what is a sparsely populated plate and thinking "That's not enough" but when I get up from the table.. I'm full.


Home is where I park it.

Sure they're a franchise. A southern/country cooking franchise. Started in Lebanon, TN. Plus, the store attached to it couldn't be more southern/country. And, if you were from the south, you'd spell it "y'all" [emoticon]

Yawl is a 2-masted sailing ship, where y'all is a contraction for 'you all'.

yawl
/yôl/
noun: yawl; plural noun: yawls

a two-masted fore-and-aft-rigged sailboat with the mizzenmast stepped far aft so that the mizzen boom overhangs the stern.

[Pastor, where do you suggest we find "good food" while in a large RV in unknown territory?

I'm surprised at all the bad pub Cracker Barrel is getting. I only ate there once years ago and it was overcrowded and food was just ok. But if you get free overnight parking I think i could eat there again [emoticon]


Would you continually go back to the same gas station if they gave your bad fuel for free?

I am often amazed at what people will put into their bodies and minds by eating bad food or reading ungodly books.

Free parking is one thing but to eat bad food just to get the free parking? I have eaten at Cracker Barrel many times and so far the food was ok; sometimes super. I think it depends on the quality of the staff more than the actual food. It takes quality chefs to prepare a fine dish worthy of ones palate and promote good health. Any one can serve a bad meal.



I have not had a bad meal at Cracker Barrel. I usually eat at CB 2-3 times a year when in certain areas of the country and meet with a group of folks for dinner in their area. Other times in other areas I meet with different group of folks at different restaurants. Some groups are a dozen or so and some 60 or more, therefore we choose restaurants that not only have food we like and adequate seating but also adequate parking. Locally, wife and I usually eat out 2-4 times a week at a variety of restaurants serving a variety of foods.

My habit is I order what I want not necessarily what they bundle on a menu. Bundled meals are for the seller to make max profit; not necessarily healthy, not necessarily what I have a taste for.

I usually attend a restaurant that caters to whatever I am interested at the time, if I want fish I go to a reputable fish house, if steak I go to a steak house, if country food I go to a country restaurant, if Greek I go to a Greek restaurant, if Italian I go to a Italian restaurant. It all depends upon what I have a taste for at the time.

My MH and tow is 60' and when traveling in it I find many opportunities to park; coast to coast. There are some I pass because of lack of parking.

Be careful what you eat. We were with another couple at a restaurant in Yellowstone and was seated and ordered our drinks. The ladies attended the restroom and when then returned they followed a waitress who came out of the stall and did not wash her hands and they told us and we all got up to leave and the manager came over and asked what was wrong. The ladies told her what the waitress did and we left. It is not safe to complain and still eat in the restaurant they may spit in your food while it is being prepared.

There is bad food and then there are filthy food preparers.

I'm from Michigan also and I love Cracker Barrel breakfast. I often get breakfast (mamas pancake breakfast is my favorite) for supper when I'm there.[emoticon] For the cost I think they have the best breakfast of any chain I've been too. I know the one by me is usually always busy.

Many words are not limited to a single definition. That is your definition, and mine is mine. [emoticon]
