Where did Cracker Barrel get its name?

When our founder, Dan Evins, opened the first Cracker Barrel, he was passionate about recreating old country stores from his childhood along interstates and highways so that travelers would always have a place to stop, relax, get a good country meal and feel at home. Crackers used to be delivered to those old country stores in barrels, and people would congregate around them to discuss the news of the day – they were the original water coolers! Since the restaurant was meant to help people reconnect with friends and family over a good meal, it was a fitting name.

Does Cracker Barrel offer contactless delivery?

For delivery service, you can add special instructions to your online order such as "leave at the front door" or "contactless delivery" to help you maintain social distancing.
