Florida Guide > Dining
Cracker Barrel restaurants can be fond all over Orlando, several new ones springing up over the last few years. Our community is on Four Corners on the US 27 and there is one just beyond there. There is one on HYW 192 and one on International drive, one on the way to Daytona and several others. They are generally used by both locals and holidaymakers alike and are extremely popular. You can drive past at any time of the day and the car park will be full, always a good sign I think.
The restaurant has a brilliant menu and a bit different to the usual burgers and fries, you can get burgers and fries too but the different ones to try are things like – Mamas chicken dumplings or Meatloaf, another favourite is chicken fried chicken and all the fixins ! They are good old-fashioned American cooking at it’s best and does make a pleasant change from the usual stuff we tend to eat while in Florida. The salads are great and you get a very good fish selection on a Friday.
The breakfasts are particularly good and my personal favourite is the pancakes with the peach preserve, covered with whipped cream or the fresh strawberries! The homemade cornbread and biscuits are very good to smothered with maple syrup! Naughty but nice!
You can’t fail to find something to tickle your taste buds here. The atmosphere is excellent with realk coal fires in the winter (yes they do have winter and cooler weather sometimes) and you can while away the time you are waiting for your meal with a game of draughts or on each of the tables there is a solitaire game (these can also by purchased there and are great to leave at the villa for other people to play with! ! )
But the reason I love Cracker Barrel is the shop that is with the restaurant! It is full of interesting little gifts, toys, clothes and also the famous Yankee candles, so while you are waiting to be seated you can wander round the shop and purchase some great gifts to take home. I always manage to come out ladened with bags as well as a full tummy!
Outside there are rows of rocking chairs, so you can sit and watch the world go by on a balmy evening while you wait for your table or to let your meal settle before heading home. You can even buy a rocking chair as well if you want to!
Go on give it a try next time, you know it makes sense.
