It's what makes America great and the rest of the world terrible.

I have been to the original one in Lebanon Tennessee but it didn't taste any better than the ones in Utah.

Not the best thing to look at on an empty stomach.

I've gone to a Cracker Barrel twice - one in Raleigh about 11 years ago, and then one in Indiana last year. I was less impressed the second time around - probably because I had been eating similar meals for days.

That looks like an angry Bill Paxton outside of Cracker Barrel. Moscow, PA.

It has aged well. Perfectly cast. Great soundtrack. It's really a lot of fun.

Wonder if there was a Cracker Barrel in Wakita?

I have a Great Cracker Barrel Story.

In 2002 I was staying up a Penn State (main campus) for the summer. Living in my fraternity house and working as a campus rent-a-cop. I get a knock on my door at 7:30 am from one of my bros named JT. He was 8 years older than me, when back to college after restaurant work and even a stint as a Chippendales dancer. He ballooned up a bit and took the form of a modern day John Belushi. Needless to say he was an essential member of our roster.

I was surprised to see him at that hour, and then he led into his pitch. He started, "What's up B?. Wondering if you would be able to give me a ride". This ride involved driving him to Ohio in my car where he would purchase an Isuzu SUV he found online and then return back to State College. The Ohio border was 3 hours away and the promise of $80 dollars + gas, was a great way to get some scratch and spend time with one of the most entertaining characters you will ever meet. Then he told me about the Cherry on top of the deal. We will stop he said, and I will treat you to dinner at CRACKER BARREL The visions of Sawmill Gravy on my plate overcame my early morning grogginess an the adventure was afoot.

My then-ancient 1986 BMW 325 with Vinyl seats was a tight fit for JT's big frame, but he had no choice (NOTE: I'm not that super-WASPY, bought the BMW from a gas station in NJ for $2500. When you are 17 in HS, skinny, nerdy, and shy around girls, might as well use whatever means necessary to elevate a baller image) We made a quick stop at Sheetz for snacks and fuel then hopped on I-80 West. About an hour into our journey I finally brought up an important question, "So where in Ohio are we going?" JT replied in a matter of fact mode "Right outside of Cincinnati". The realization hit me that this 'can you give me a ride?' request was going to last 12 hours round trip at a minimum. Still the company was dank, and the promise of Cracker Barrel was worth a day on the road.

We crossed the stateline 2 hours later, scooted beneath Akron, and crossed the Columbus metro. The afternoon wore on and we began to approach the northern suburbs of the Queen City. At this point it was time to revisit the important destination question "We are almost to Cincinnati, when should I get ready to get off the highway?". Once again JT answered with a sly confidence "We have to go over the bridge". It hit me. "So we are going into Kentucky?". What a slick operator JT was. Had to admire his skills in pitching a ride to the Ohio border to now making the trip extend into a former-slave state.

15 miles after crossing into Kentucky we reached a small suburban home, with the Candy Apple Red Isuzu in the driveway as the midway point of our quest. Was able to stretch my cramped legs in a recliner as JT filled out paper work and dropped 5-G's in legal tender. We pinpointed the Cracker Barrel exit on the map about 50 minutes north of Cincy. From there we were back on the road. Not as fun in separate vehicles. But the reward was close at hand. We pulled off the exit where we could see the Cracker Barrel sign.

We plopped in our seats and feasted like hungry Knights on a hero's quest. Proud of his brand new steed, Sir JT filled his large belly with all the fixings and country fried steak. The Sawmill Gravy lathered our stomach linings with a satisfying glaze that increased the bloating of our mid-sections. There was 20 minutes of decompression and bathroom breaks after the meal, before we saddled up for the journey home.

I finally returned home to my room and collapsed onto my futon at 11 pm. Despite my weariness it was a great day that vividly lives in my memory over 14 years later. Thanks JT and Cracker Barrel.

TL;DR Summary

 
Got suckered into giving my college buddy a 14 hour round trip ride to Kentucky help him get a new car. 80 dollars and a Cracker Barrel dinner were payment.
