    Cracker Barrell was accused of anti-gay practices, accusations with a great deal of proof. Someone with better computer skills than I can probably provide a link.

        Supposedly, they've implemented stricter anti-discrimination policies. I have my doubts.

          Saw Mill Gravy....grease and all.....SUX
          the only thing I'll order there is Mom's Breakfast...cakes, bacon, eggs and coffee. The other things I've had were not worth the memory space in my head.

            my understanding was that a few years back they had been sued or were going to be sued for discriminating against African-American customers and for sexual harrassment against employees. I just did a web search and this is what I found. www.eeoc.gov/press/8-11-04.html. Hope fully this will link up. If not, just Google "cracker barrel lawsuit" and click on the EEOC link.

              Similar to Denny's lawsuits. IMO both were opportunists taking advantage of perhaps rather "undefined" corporate policy. Regardless, food @ both chains still su_k. Nothing accomplished here, et.al.

                Gosh, and here I thought I'd posted that very EEOC link several days ago... Must've been mistaken.

                  I'm sure I've mentioned this somewhere on this board before but I worked at a Cracker Barrel one summer. Hated it. Hated the unfriendly unhelpful managers (when I have 30 people standing in line at my register, it'd be nice if somebody would come give me a hand), the insane rushes (couple tour buses just pulled in the parking lot! Great.), the cranky oldsters (never deny an elderly person their Cracker Barrel biscuits--ever), the woman who would buy 50 bucks worth of gifts using gift certificates, only to turn around and exchange them for cash...she did that a couple times a week. My register kept coming up short, it wasn't me, I kept very careful track of all my transactions. Turns out a shift manager was stealing from our registers. Great.

                  As for the food? I'm on the fence. I like their grilled catfish. The veggie plate is a nice option to have. I like their salads. But their breakfast food seems to get cold so quickly. And their dining rooms are always so noisy. Trying to get through the gift shop to get out the door is like trying to weave through a defensive line.

                  Give me Waffle House any day.

                    I used to really like Cracker Barrel, but I think the food has really gone downhill the last few years. Unfortunately, everyone else in my family still loves them, so I am stuck going at times.

                      I had breakfast at CB this morning with a former colleague. I have to admit the breakfast was very good much to my surprise. Nice fried eggs, grits, gravy and crispy biscuits. Bacon ws nice and crispy and coffe was very good.
