Great breakfast and despite the fact that EVERYONE in Council Bluff, Iowa had the same idea that I did, and go eat at Cracker Barrel, the service was efficient and prompt.

Conveniently located just off I-80. Very good food! All kinds of things to look at and don't forget to check out the clearance corner....all kinds of bargains!!! The wait staff is friendly and they keep the water and coffee refilled! :)
