It's trying to be a place a family can agree on going to. Which is nice.

It's so sad that Cracker Barrel, when you enter the establishment, straps into a chair a la  Homer Simpson in Hell, and forces plant based sausage down your throat until your body shuts down from a lack of dead animal flesh.

Now racist rednecks that pray for Donald Trump to bless their food, will have to eat somewhere else

Vegan food is like abortion, if you don't want one, don't get one.

There's a common problem in group dinner outings called the veto.  With as many vegetarians as there are now, it's worth it having more non-meat options on the menu to prevent a vegetarian from vetoing a whole family or group of friends from going to your restaurant.  It's just good business sense.

They also serve booze now.  I read that this is because they resisted the profit potential of this for too long to keep rejecting it.  Post pandemic, they need to shore up their finances and they've got beer and wine to help them do it.

Are meat based foods being taken off the menu? No? Then this change doesn't negatively impact those who eat. Eat. The complainers need to STFU.

I will NEVER attempt to eat at Cracker Barrel again. About 3 weeks ago we went there, waited over an hour and 1/2 for food, ended up leaving having not ate, and went somewhere else. The visit started off okay, but after 1/2 and hour we were starting to get antsy. We asked the waiter what was taking so long and he said they were short staffed. At the hour mark we decided to leave, but the waiter assured us our food was almost up, and he would send the manager to talk to us. At the hour and 1/2 mark, were pretty livid by this point, we still have no food, and the manager finally comes to our table. He says, whats the problem? We say, we've been waiting for an hour and half for food. He says sorry, hands us a coupon for a free desert, and walks away. We still don't have food. We leave vowing to never return again.

Also, Beyond Meat has seed oil in it and numerous people selling nutritional supplements have appeared on the Joe Rogan experience to say how bad seed oils are and Joe agreed and that man doesn't just agree with anyone so you know it's true.

Racists of that era always reminded me of entitled children - like the ones who refuse to go to bed at a new bedtime and IT'S JUST NOT FAIR. Modern racists just seem more malicious these days.

Pocket Ninja: The only thing that Cracker Barrel might be caving into is the collective weight of its diners on any given Saturday morning.


I remember when the first one opened in the Houston area (Baytown on I-10).  My mother and father in-law took us there and I thought it was pretty good - such as new restaurants tend to be.  We went a few more times when we would visit and before my father in-law got sick.  The next time I went was a few years later, after they had proliferated.  It was outside Kansas City somewhere.  By that time, they had solidified their customer base and it wasn't near as good.  I haven't been to one since.

Cracker Barrel has always been the long road trip comfort food stop when not on a diet.  Never had a cracker there.

It's like the Disneyland of Comfort Food that isn't Mexican, Italian, Cantonese, Turkish, German, Thai, Korean, or Mediterranean.

"Hey y'all, welcome to Cracker Barrel. Can I get y'all something from our new Woke Breakfast Menu? We got the George Floyd Breakfast Platter--that's five sausages, three eggs, four pieces of toast, eight strips of bacon, and two waffles. It so much food you'll have trouble breathing. We also have Colin Kaepernick's Crispy Waffles Plate. You'll kneel before such amazingly delicious syrup-drench waffles. You may want to try our Black Beans Matter Breakfast Bowl, with your choice of eggs, because all eggs matter. If you're in the mood for something healthier, try the Shawn King's White Omelet--it's all egg whites, served with white bread and white rice. And don't worry, if your stomach gets upset after anything, you can pick up some Malcolm X-Lax in our Country Store."

So, wanting more customers is 'Woke' now?

Is there a reason that y'all motherf*ckers get mad when other people don't want to leave money just lying around on the table? Seriously. Y'all get rooked on the regular, so you feel that you need to patronize businesses that are willing to settle for less people for...what? The pleasure of your company alone?

You don't like folks, so you expect businesses to not like the same people? They have to cut off their own noses to not spite you?  Y'all are some great financial geniuses...

On Monday, the chain posted on Facebookabout a plant-based sausage made by Impossible Foods that' Cracker Barrel had added to breakfast menus earlier this summer. The post sparked strong reactions from its followers, with many complaining that Cracker Barrel should not be offering the meat alternative.
"I just lost respect for a once great Tennessee company," one person commented. Another comment said: "Not going to happen! Cracker Barrel used to be so good, we looked forward to eating in them but not anymore," while another person wrote "bad choice." Others expressed skepticism that the product would taste good. Several commenters decried the "woke" addition to the menu.


I golf and because I purchase golf stuff, Facebook knows to send me golf adjacent content.  Currently, much of the content is related to LIV golf.  It is amazing to me how many assorted working class white people are extremely supportive of LIV golf.  1.  Why do these non-golfers care?  2.  Why would they be passionately supporting a bunch of old golfers getting rich in a quasi-senior league?  3.  Why do they have so many opinions on the PGA and where do they get them?

The only thing I can surmise is that right wing radio is extremely supportive of this Saudi golf league because they're getting paid to be.  This can't be organic.  There is no reason most of these people would even notice.  There is so much astroturf in public opinion these days.

These people complaining about "woke" Cracker Barrel are just getting ginned up by bad actors.

let it go FFS.  No one did anything bad to you. You just like to hate for hates' sake. IS your lives so miserable you have to carry a burden like that? You all are too young. You can 't falsely blame a person and be hateful forever. Although, It is nice to get your teen angst out of the way, some people still deal with that in their 20's.'

I'm an unapologetic carnivore. But when there are meat substitutes offered on a menu, I'll usually order them. Most of the time, they are pretty good . I like having those options.

I am not a vegetarian at all, but sometimes I will get a vegetarian dish and they can be surprisingly good.  Got a pasta dish recently with lots of veggies and a good sauce.  It was tastier than their meat variety pasta.
