Never been to one. Are they easy to access in an RV?


Thanks in advance,

Jim

As a rule they are, but each location is different, so we've never made the assumption that they all have RV-friendly parking lots.

That being said, my recommendations are as follows. Pecan pancakes for breakfast, and lemon pepper trout for dinner. Good eatin'

Happy travels!

Most only have 3 to 4 RV parking spots & depending on the size of your RV could be hard to get in & out of the parking lot.

Would a 30 foot class C have much trouble in a Cracker Barrel parking lot?

As was mentioned they all are different. Your best bet would be to use Google Earth to look at the parking lot of the one you're interested in, but most of them I've seen I believe you could into and out of.

The food is pretty run-of-the-mill standard franchise fare.

Most Cracker Barrels only have parking spaces for RVs that are "converted" end-to-end double car spots. Our experience is that they do choose parking locations that are easy for us to access with our 36' Winnebago. That said, the spots ARE NOT suitable for longer RVs that are towing. You will likely end up blocking a driving lane. Unless you stop at an off hour when you are able to park along the perimeter with your toad, you may have issues. They are building a new one here in Reno NV and I'm anxious to see how they provide for RV parking with a newly designed facility. Most Cracker Barrels were already built before they realized having a place for us RVers to park would be beneficial. The food is not exceptional but it is very consistent. To us, that has value.

We frequent different Cracker Barrels daily as we travel. Usually stop around 9 or 10am to catch a late breakfast. We love their menu, and their biscuits.
Always located just off the interstate, usually very RV friendly and usually very easy to find parking for our MH and toad. We are just over 60 ft in length.
Similar to Walmart, Most Cracker Barrels will even let you stay in their parking lot overnight.

WE have two cracker barrels in my area. One is tight getting into and around in their parking areas with a crew cab pickup.
The other is at the end of a shopping strip with a huge open area parking lot (no islands or curbs) that OTR can easily get in and out of.
However food quality/cooking has went downhill so we don't go anymore to either one.
I use google earth when looking how to find locations and how to get there and where to park pulling my 32' trailer or just the truck.

We don't do the overnight stopovers with our type of Rving. That said we have stopped & dinned a few times, our meals were awful, just saying.
