Cracker Barrel in Branson MO

Hi Neighbors!

Guess one of the restaurants I was able to attend on our 30th Anniversary trip to Branson?  After visiting an area attraction we went to Cracker Barrel for lunch!  It was great!  We had a really nice waitress, who took care of us during our visit.

And don't forget the biscuits and jelly!  Good old country cooking.  No long wait.  Great service and great food.

 We both ordered their 10 oz. Rib Eye dinner.  I had their House Salad and mashed potatoes.  My husband had the mashed potatoes, hashbrown casserole, and dumplings.  It was sooooo good!  We each ordered dessert too!  We each got their Double Chocolate Fudge Coca Cola Cake with ice cream.  We had enough leftovers for dinner!  I could only eat about 1/3 of my cake and saved the rest for later.   I had Diet Pepsi and my husband had their Strawberry Lemonade.

The meal and service were great and I would definitely go back again.  Of course I did look around in their store too.  It is one of my favorite things to do at Cracker Barrel!

Cracker Barrel Mission:
Some companies pride themselves on long-winded and complicated mission statements, but that’s just not our way. In fact, since the very first Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® opened back in 1969 in Lebanon, Tennessee, we've kept things pretty simple. The way we see it, our mission is to please people. Nothing more. Nothing less. And if we do that, we have more than a fair chance of success. If everyone who walks in our front door gets a warm welcome and a good meal at a fair price. If they enjoy browsing through our old country store. If everyone who works with us or whom we do business with is treated fairly and with respect. If we do all those things, well, then we figure the business will take care of itself. And fortunately, so far, it has.

After our meal we headed out to some of the Branson antique malls.  What a wonderful day we had!  If any of my neighbors are visiting Branson or planning a trip, be sure to stop by the Branson Cracker Barrel, for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Oh gosh I love CB and they dont have them in our state- I used to love years ago how they had the beehives behind glass (if you are old you might remember that!) Looks great and a wonderful time!

I am not one to eat the heavy foods served at CRacker Barrell. The first one I went to was in Johnson City, TN. It was the first time i had seen that type of food on the menu. Now my stepdad grew up in TN, somhe ordered a chicken fried steak, I had ice with a side of water. I love the puzzels at the table and the general store the best. I am a very picky eater, so this was not the place for me to dine

yum..i love Cracker Barrel.. I have been in a few years though. Heck we haven't been to a sit down restaurant in over two years due to financial reasons. But I do have to say Cracker Barrel I one of my favorites for home cooking. I like the Country Fried Chicken with gravy, fried Okra, Hash brown casserole. Don't forget the tarter sauce for the okra.

Yum yum

I love going through their gift shop and taking home some old fashion candy sticks.

Did you scold the waitress for working outside the home?
