Cracker Barrel Restaurant & The Old Country Store

Updated on August 30, 2017

A Favorite Restaurant for Road Trips - Cracker Barrel Restaurant

I enjoy traveling and taking road trips have been a way of life for me.

When children came along, that did not stop me. They got popped into their car seats and on the road we would go.

With or without children, safety is an issue when traveling to places known or unknown.

For long trips, stopping is inevitable and my stop of choice is any exit with a Cracker Barrel Restaurant and The Old Country Store.

With the popularity of Cracker Barrel Restaurant and The Old Store finding one at an exit along your route should be easier than baking a pie.

I will be sharing some fun facts about Cracker Barrel and introduce you to my families favorite stop on all of our travels either just up the road or to the next state over.

I took a few photos of Cracker Barrel signs on one of our road trips and I am sharing them with you. So all photos are from my own travels. The Cracker Barrel signs are fun to watch for seeing how different each one is.

I hope you enjoy taking a trip to Cracker Barrel and The Old Country Store with me and my family.

The Old Country Store

You'll find one inside every Cracker Barrel

There are many things that draw us to the Cracker Barrel but I would have to say that the most favorite for us is the 'Old Country Store' that you walk through before you get to the restaurant.

It's like you have stepped back in time to the days when there was only one general store in town.There is a warm sense of family and goodness in every corner of the store.

Candies and toys from long ago can be found here. You just can't help yourself picking through all nostalgia that brings back all those fond memories of childhood.

Find a Cracker Barrel Restaurant near you. I encourage you to plan a trip soon.

      @Jerzimom: It is a treat to visit the Cracker Barrel but I must warn you that the General Store is the real draw for me, not to mention the huge fireplace especially during the Winter months. Thx for the visit with us.
