  • What is Cracker Barrel's standard bread service?

    At Cracker Barrel Old Country Store we want to make sure guests get the hottest, freshest biscuits and corn muffins we can serve up. And we want to make sure we serve them to guests who want the bread instead of wasting it by serving bread to folks who don't really have any interest in the biscuits or corn muffins. As a result, we ask our guests what type of bread they want – biscuits or corn muffins, and we serve the bread with our guests' meals. As competitive as our business has become, every chance to reduce waste helps hold prices down.

    If you do have a preference of having your bread before your meal, just let your server know and fresh, hot biscuits and corn muffins will be right out to you!
