Cracker Barrel has good french toast, but the pancakes are better at Bob Evans.

The original Bob Evans is still open over in east Ohio, near Gallipolis. But it's nothing special at all. Same food as any other location. Kind of disappointing. Not worth stopping at, unless you are in Gallipolis and just want a plate of pancakes and bacon.

I like Cracker Barrel. I never had a problem with their breakfasts and the corn muffins are made with real cornmeal. They also serve real maple syrup and that's a big plus to me. Their trout dinner is better than Red Lobsters and way cheaper. The CB's around here are packed for common meal times. Best to go off peak hours.

One of my favorite places to eat in Montana. Always good and I like the menu. Wish they would come to Bozeman, but not trendy enough for that liberal place anymore.

Bishop's in St George is fantastic. We eat breakfast there almost every time we drive home from Arizona. We stay at the Comfort Inn right around the corner.

We also eat at the CB in Spanish Fork on the drive down to Arizona. Get there about brunch time and sometimes have breakfast and sometimes lunch menu. I don't understand what some of you think about their food, unless you somehow expect Ruth's Chris fare at McD prices. I think we drive past at least five CBs between Ogden and Phoenix and we've eaten at four of them. Have never been disappointed.

You get it. It isn’t a place you need reservations and a tie for. It’s a decent sit down meal cheap and fast.

Nope, never been. To be honest it sounds like the same old local fall festivals they have everywhere else. I could be wrong about it though.

We hit as many as we can - I really enjoy going to local town festivals. The Bob Evans one is always the same weekend as another we like to go to so I've yet to make it there.

Not sure why the one in Beaverton is closing. Seems like every time I drove by there the parking lot was full or close to it.

There's always a local breakfast place that's better. Just finding it is the trick.
That Pancake place there on the way into the city wasn't bad eats for breakfast.

Only thing I liked about Cracker Barrel, on the few occasions I ate there (3x maybe??) was that I could get greens with my order. Not many places serve greens.

If it is breaded and deep fried in grease, it’s southern.

How is it I don’t know about Bishop’s? I lived in Cedar City for a number of years too. I’ll be passing through there in a couple weeks & will have to check it out.

I used to eat at a cracker barrel from time to time. Interesting country store type vibe... some of the food was pretty good. You can sleep in your RV in their parking lot which is nice...

Then about 30 years ago they tried to kill me. I was traveling solo in a hotel trying to decide if I should dial 911. Terrible food poisoning. Obviously I lived but I have not set foot back inside one in close to 30 years.

Honestly Cooking!

🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🖕🖕🖕

I just don't understand?


Why go out to eat food like you make at home?
Or like Mom's?


Chances are they won't be as good as I'm used to. At least different.

Meat loaf, roast beef, roast turkey, mashed potatoes, anything Italian unless in an Italian restaurant....

I do not eat out.
Getting picky about where I get a steak.
Why pay some knotted 3x my cost to serve me something sub par, and expect a tip!


Folks bust on the fast food places, I'd rather get a fresh high speed burger than
some spongy, filler filled meat loaf or dried reconstituted potatoes.

Tom's Pankcake House. Yep. Better than Cracker Barrel, IMHO.
