“Dinner”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

Food was great. We got just what we ordered and it was hot and good. The staff was very friendly, even when they became really busy. Great place to eat. One of three places my family enjoyed eating at while in Abilene. I would recommend Cracker Barrel to anyone visiting or passing through Abilene.

“Nice and relaxed ”
Reviewed 12 October 2013 via mobile

We had a late lunch there the other day, and we had a great time. What I most loved, was a baked sweet potato, which was served with just right amount of brown sugar and cinnamon, and butter. And their corn bread muffins!! There are lot more to try out, so now I have to go back to them several more times.

“An excellent dining choice”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

One of our frequent stops when traveling across Texas, Abilene's Cracker Barrel is conveniently located, has a friendly and efficient staff and a clean and well-appointed country store. A pet peeve is when a restaurant is “out of” my favorite menu item. That never happens here. It's the perfect rest stop for travel or an excellent choice for a meal if you live in the area.

We have lunched at CB Abilene countless times between 11:00am and 3:30pm on Sundays and service is always noticeably and unavoidably slower during these times due to large crowds. We have never encountered slow service at any other day or time at this location, which we've visited since it's opening. If you have a choice, you might want to dine outside of this timeframe.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 16 July 2013 via mobile

I've eaten at quite a few of these but this one needs some help in the kitchen. Tough, gristly chicken fried steak, dumplings like wet spongy dough. The carrots were water logged. No amount of country gravy could fix this.

“Good, clean, yummy”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

Always a great time at the Barrel.... the bread up front is absolutely sinful with that jelly. The steaks were prepared as ordered...service was impeccable. A great time, will be back.
