Christmas Shopping and Dinner In One Stop with Cracker Barrel

I am really big on good prices and good food, I love to save money but I mean who doesn’t?  I recently had the opportunity to go try Oregon’s first and only Cracker Barrel!  We were so excited to find out what it was all about, I heard they had a store attached but wasn’t quite sure what to expect.  I took my entire family there with me so we could all have the opportunity to try it out for ourselves and give our own opinion.

Cracker Barrel Restaurant

First we decided to go straight for dinner.  We had been pretty much all day without eating much and we were all starving!  We were seated pretty immediately at a large round table right next to the fire place.  I have to say the feel of the restaurant was very inviting and comfortable, it was a lot like home!  They were playing country music in the background, oil lamps at every table and the warm fireplace going, making a nice place to escape the cold outside.  One thing I thought was really fun is they had little games at every table that you could play while you waited for your food!

We were all welcomed very a very sweet waitress who quickly got us our drinks.  My son decided to get strawberry lemonade and it came in a frosted glass!

Food Selection

One of my favorite parts was the amazing selection of breakfast, lunch and dinners that Cracker Barrel had available.  I decided to have chicken fried steak and was so surprised to find out I got to choose from three sides, it was actually a ton of fun looking through all the choices.  My older son got the chicken BLT sandwich with fries, my younger son got the hamburger with fries and my significant other also chose the chicken fried steak.  My mom was along with us and got the chicken and dumplings.  The food was amazing!  We felt it was a perfect portion size to fill us up.  Everything came out of the kitchen fresh and hot.

My very first thought was everything was awesome quality, there was so much to choose from and the prices were crazy inexpensive!  We were so surprised at how much you could purchase with your money.  I loved all the pretty Christmas ornaments and decorations they had for sale.  They really have a little bit of everything!

What We Got

We definitely got a few items for Christmas gifts from Cracker Barrel.  I was so excited about their prices that I pretty much wanted to purchase the entire store.  They have so many great options and brands!  I love all their lotions, flavored sodas and different candy choices!  They have some amazing stocking stuffer choices also, we love the Crayola tin, little kitty carrier with a mystery kitty figurine inside and the super cute heart tin with stickers and other fun stuff inside.

Overall I would definitely make a trip to go back to Cracker Barrel!  I hope they open more locations here in Oregon, one close to the coast would be awesome!  We had so much fun and a great family experience and the shopping was so much fun!
