The Greatest Thing Restaurants Ever Offered

Online Ordering.

I swear this was the greatest thing ever in life.  And the apps too.  I have a folder on my phone that houses all of the apps to my favorite food spots.  Don’t get me wrong, I love taking trips to restaurants in the evenings but over the past few weeks I have not had the time to go sit inside.  Fast food was not an option due to my meatless ways of living so lately when I get hungry I just open the nearest tab, type in where I want to eat, click the glorious “Online Order” button and go to work.  It’s ready for me in 8-10 minutes (Could be longer depending on where you’re going) then I go pick it up.  Faster than the drive thru if you ask me!

Anyway, I went to Cracker Barrel today to get something slight for lunch.  I ordered the the Lemon Pepper Grilled Rainbow Trout, Mac & Cheese and Fried Okra.  I got biscuits with apple butter and of course water to drink.

💡Tip:  Cracker Barrel is a little extra when it comes to the order form so make sure you go through all of the steps and hit submit at the end.  If you don’t receive a confirmation email then you have to go back and confirm something.

The verdict:

Lemon Pepper Grilled Rainbow Trout

Delicious.  Grilled to perfection.  I wish I would have gotten the platter because it comes with two pieces instead of one.  It’s filet so you don’t have to worry about any bones.  I really savored every bite.

Mac & Cheese

Honestly, the mac & cheese is good but it’s missing that southern soul food twist.  Not sure which ingredient is missing, maybe some extra seasoning but it’s still good.  Not too creamy and not to bland.  I like it and definitely recommend it for a side on the dinner or lunch menu.

Fried Okra

Love it.  Cracker barrel has always served fresh golden okra.  I’ve had it many times on the dinner menu and I have not had a bad batch yet!  I think they cook to order so this is a great side to add to your meal.  Plus the fried okra is one of the menu items that is not cooked with meat.  Some of the veggie items have the pork in the servings.

If you follow me on social media then you know I eat here many times for breakfast but I also cosign on the lunch and dinner menu as well.  And don’t forget, if you order online make sure you cover all of the steps to get your confirmation email.  Trust me I have learned this from experience.  I literally pulled up and there was no food!  But they are really good about expediting your order so if that happens to you the wait time is short.  Enjoy!
