I was traveling to Florida with my family from Vermont and we stopped to get something to eat along the way. We were pretty far into our trip, we made it all the way down to South Carolina. I had seen many signs for this restaurant called Cracker Barrel. We don’t have any of those up in Vermont so we decided to check it out.
We walked in and we had to walk through what looked like an old time country store. They had rocking chairs, old style games, toys along with other various items. It looked like a pretty neat place. We finished walking through there and made our way to the hostess stand.
The woman that greeted with was very nice, and seemed so friendly. This was a nice change from the way people are up North. They seem to be much more closed, and kept to themselves. I could definitely get used to this southern hospitality.
We sat down and opened our menus eagerly. We were all very hungry. We had not ate in 5 or 6 hours so we were anxious to get something in our stomachs. There was so much to choose from it was hard to make up our minds. They also serve breakfast all day too. This wasn’t helping me narrow my choices down any easier.
When the waitress come over to take our order I decided to go with the chicken fried chicken meal. I was surprised it came with so much. I got to order 3 sides to go along with it on top of the biscuits or cornbread we wanted to order. After ordering we all agreed that this would fill us up for a while.
The food came out pretty fast and the portions were huge! I didn’t think I was going to be able to finish all this food that I was given. I was definitely going to have to take some with us on the road. As we dug in we all agreed that this food was delicious. It was one of the best meals I had in a while, and was a nice change from fast food that you get when you’re on the road.
The bill at the end was very reasonable too. For my family of four we spent under $45 to sit down and eat. There are some fast food places you can’t even do that. I can’t wait for my next trip to Cracker Barrel. It was a fantastic meal and a great price.
