Many of you know that we had a road trip to Atlanta to attend Barkworld 2013. It was a long drive. We had many stops to go for potty breaks and stretching our legs. On the way to Atlanta, we quickly stopped on several chained burger/coffee food establishments that were not dog-friendly. They do offer an outside dining patio but it was not shaded and the cemented area was a bit uncomfortable to rest. One reason why mom prepared us for where to stop on our way back home to Chicago. She made a plan for us to stop at Cracker Barrel establishments, “known for providing a friendly away from home atmosphere in an old country store and restaurant.” Cracker Barrel’s mission is “to please people.” Everyone that walks in the front door of Cracker Barrel gets a warm welcome and a good country meal at a fair price.
Cracker Barrel does not allowed dogs inside their shop/restaurant. However, all Cracker Barrel’s have a large covered patio with rocking chairs and wooden benches. It was a comfy area for me to hang/rest. My peeps ordered their meals to go and ate it on the patio.
Our first stop was Cracker Barrel, Tennessee where my peeps ate some old style country breakfast. Mom was so hungry that she forgot to take photos of her breakfast. According to her, she had a delicious corn grits. How about ME? I had breakfast when we left Atlanta so I was full. I was actually still sleepy and decided to just hang out and let my peeps enjoy their meals.
We stopped in another Tennessee Cracker Barrel for a quick potty break. It was packed by Sunday church goers and we were unable to take photos.
At lunch time, we arrived at a Kentucky Cracker Barrel. The place was packed too but we found a bench to rest while we waited for our food. There were so many children that petted me. I received great compliments from their parents for my PAWsome behavior with them. Oh! my peeps enjoyed a Delish grilled catfish with a side of baked sweet potato and brown rice. Since Cracker Barrel is also known for their Fried Apple, they have lots of fresh apples too. So what did I have for lunch? Fresh Nicely Cut Sweet Apples. Again, photos are just ME as mom was so hungry that she forgot to take photos of her food.
The last 2 Cracker Barrel we stopped were located in Indiana, 1) Scottsburg 2) Hobart which is known to be a friendly town. We stopped for potty break and stretch our legs. Golden Nice that there were many grassy areas in the Cracker Barrel locations we visited.
Golden Shout Out, if you are on a road trip with your dog and looking for an alternative quick serve food stop, we recommend Cracker Barrel. There were also lots of neat stuff in the Cracker Barrel shops.
