Cracker Barrel Coming to California

… to Victorville:

I do (or did - it’s been 13+ years) enjoy their hashbrown casserole.

Now why can’t we get Waffle House out here?!

ETA: The Register does a lousy job of policing comments (or, possibly, is happy to have the traffic the more controversial/offensive commenters generate).

The only things I remember about Cracker Barrel back when I lived in the midwest was 1) my ex LOVED their biscuits and gravy (which I have never really understood) and 2) they used to have a policy against openly gay employees, and supported causes that made them whatever the 90’s version of ‘problematic’ was, ala’ Chik-Fil-A.

I think they got rid of the overtly nasty political stuff, but I still never quite understood the appeal of having a country breakfast place attached to a pseudo-folksy gift shop, with or without the bible-bent.

On roadtrips I go out of my way to avoid Cracker Barrel.

I’ll avoid the cheap Tiger Woods joke but when my SIL lived in the south, the nickname for Waffle House was “Awful Waffle”

Wasn’t there a Cracker Barrel in Cerritos before?

Can’t see any reason, based on their menu, their contrived “country-ness” (or their political views), that I’d drive to Victorville, or even across town, for this. I also was horribly disappointed by Waffle House the first time I went to one in the South. Gimme Uncle Bill’s, or even Original Pancake House…

Waffle House is not about the food.

Waffle House is about “I dunno, man… wassopen? I got… eight bucks and some change… wait. no. that’s my keys.”

The one thing I like about Cracker Barrel is the attached shop. Great prices on cast iron and other cooking items - and they have great salt water taffy.

I grew up in Atlanta but don’t believe I’ve ever eaten at CB. I checked and there’s not one in ATL. Whew :slight_smile:

Waffle House has “additions” to their hashbrowns:

I used to order them smothered (grilled onions) and capped (mushrooms).

There’s also the Waffle House Index, courtesy of FEMA:

And yet more Cracker Barrel news:

Heard waits can be 3+ hours. I thought Howlin Ray’s line was crazy. This is nuts.

I’ve never eaten at a Cracker Barrel before and I’m probably never going to.
