Cracker Barrel vs. In-N-Out Burger
DH wanted to stop and grab a bite to eat in Virginia.
He suggested Cracker Barrel.
I protested wanting to find a ‘local favorite’ while on vacation from California. Realizing my choices were fast food joints less than worthy to a West Coast favorite In-N-Out-Burger, I acquiesced to DH wishes. For whatever reason, I envision Cracker Barrel to be a version of Hickory Farms and was turned off. Reluctantly, I agreed to dine at Cracker Barrel, all the while shuffling my feet in the sand. Boy, was I so very wrong.
Here is why…
First off, there was this sign welcoming our family. I immediately took notice “in the spirit of pleasing people; regardless of race– color of skin – disability – national origin”, etc.. These words spoke to my sense that we are all connected on this little blue marble we live on and lets be nice to each other. No Judgey Judgey. I think I may like it here.
Then came the porch rockers.
Nice. I so want a porch to reside on and watch the sunset with one of these.
You enter into the store environment, it has a very southern feel to it.
The kids were pleased. very pleased.
Had to tell the littles ‘no’. Then I saw this and wanted to eat my words.
My Grampa used to stock his Indiana bar with these candy sticks.
He did this to spoil his grand babies.
Cinnamon was my favorite. He always made sure his jar had plenty of them, thanks Grampa.
This caught my eye.
Then Darcey put her paw on me. Hi, sweet heart – I still miss you.
We are in Norfolk so this seemed very appropriate. Visions of 9-11 washed over me.
I almost bought this for Father’s Day. DH would have laughed but never worn it.
Large checker board were abound while the kiddos waited for their food. Mommy and Daddy thanks you Cracker Barrel.
Now onto the FOOD
I could eat this for every meal. Hey, don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.
So which would you choose,
Burger King, In-N-Out Burger or Cracker Barrel?
Don’t get me wrong, I love a hawt Double Double with cheese and grilled onions, but Cracker Barrel now ranks high on my East Coast/Mid West list.
Thanks DH for broadening my horizons.
