Food with Care
For us, one of the things that Pleasing People means is preparing each and every one of our menu items with the highest care.
Our recipe for making your meal a success?
Quite simple, really. It starts with quality food served with care. Offering warm welcomes and friendly service. It takes a dedication to pleasing people and treating our guests and staff like family.
Maybe that’s why, for over 45 years, millions of folks have trusted Cracker Barrel as a home-away-from-home where they can get a warm, comforting meal. It’s a trust we take seriously and couldn’t be more grateful for.
And it’s a trust we’ve earned as a homegrown business dedicated to treating our guests to the very best – delicious, hand-prepared fare that’s sourced with love and served with a smile.
Homegrown Is Where the Heart Is
Homegrown food, quite simply, tastes better. With our Tennessee roots, and 656 stores in 45 states, sourcing fresh ingredients domestically is core to our beliefs. By far and away, the vast majority of our ingredients come from right here in America. Our green beans, potatoes, farm raised catfish, sweet potatoes, turnip greens, and all of our beef, pork, and poultry are domestically grown or raised.
Homemade Makes The Difference
“Homemade” may not be an ingredient, but it’s something you can taste. That’s why we hand roll our biscuits and make our mashed potatoes and gravy from scratch all day long in each of our restaurants. It’s why we slow roast our beef for 18 hours, dip and bread our Homestyle Chicken by hand, and stay true to our heritage of authentic country style cooking after all these years.
