My son and I took a road trip to visit relatives in Huntsville, Alabama. On our route, we stopped overnight in Birmingham and enjoyed a comforting breakfast at a nearby Cracker Barrel.
While waiting for your meal at Cracker Barrel, there’s a classic peg game on all dining room tables, to help families pass the few minutes until the meal is served. My family likes to take turns to see who can get to Genius level.
My favorite aspect of Cracker Barrel isn’t just the consistently satisfying meal, but also the atmosphere and interior decor. Americana expert, Larry Singleton, seeks out and restores Americana artifacts, memorabilia, and signage to place on the walls of the various restaurants.
Cracker Barrel Old Country Store and Restaurant locations can be found in 42 states around the US. They are a convenient stop for a family road trip meal and break due to their close proximity to major highways and interstates. Download the Cracker Barrel Locator app for iPhone or Android to find one on your next family road trip.
Cracker Barrel offers Books On Audio that can be traded in for credit towards another audio book at a different location along your road trip route. Check out the full details at http://www.CrackerBarrel.com.
Be sure to plan for an extended stop of at least 45 minutes to an hour when stopping here. Once you start browsing in the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, you might find yourself lost in time.
Tip: Don’t want to dine in? Cracker Barrel offers items in larger sizes to go, or you can order anything off the menu to tak with you.
