In Texas, it's Yawl, yawl. [emoticon]



Yawl is a 2-masted sailing ship, where y'all is a contraction for 'you all'.

yawl
/yôl/
noun: yawl; plural noun: yawls

a two-masted fore-and-aft-rigged sailboat with the mizzenmast stepped far aft so that the mizzen boom overhangs the stern.

We do Cracker Barrels a lot and have for 30+ years, about 40-45 different locations. Our longest rig we use is 50' 7" long. A 29' Carriage 5th wheel behind our GM diesel crew cab long box truck. the 5th wheel has a 2' X 7-1/2' welded rack across the back we carry many items on. Never had any issues getting in or out of a Cracker Barrel yet. However, we do totally fill the RV space plus usually up to a foot of length. There are some Cracker barrels that do have shorter RV spaces and we know we'd be too long so we just choose another Cracker Barrel. We DO like their food and it is NOT greasy and that's why we go there when RV'ing. Can't say we have ever had a bad meal there.

It's so great after traveling all day to have a place to park overnight in a secure lighted RV site only a short walking distance from a nice hot meal waiting for you. Then if wanted, a nice breakfast before you leave the next day. Short walking distance is important to us as my wife is disabled and a long walking distance is totally out!

It's our 52nd year of extensive RV'ing with many different types of RV's. now so we sure aren't new to RV'ing. There are a lot of Cracker Barrels to choose from when traveling so just pick the one for you. A 30' class C should fit in every Cracker Barrel that has RV and bus parking. Simply use your cellphone or Laptop and go to Google Maps and you can view the RV parking area at a Cracker Barrel before you get there so no there are no surprises.

We so disagree with those who say their food is not good as it sure is and very reasonable and is why they have been in business since 1969 and still growing while so many other restaurants have failed or were closed. Tells you something!!!

That mediocrity is alive and well? [emoticon]

Has anyone else noticed that most of the people that don't like CB are from the north? Maybe yall just don't like SOUTHERN cooking. I know when I was trucking I hated the food up north.


Cracker Barrel is SOUTHERN cooking. Northerners typically prefer blander, less seasoned food (I know, because I grew up in Michigan with that kind of fare). Accept CB for what it is. If you don't like it, don't eat there -- simple as that.

CB is known for fairly good high quantity eating. I have stopped for dinner a few times and can usually find some choices I like. Again it is mostly quantity. When it comes to breakfast there seems to be two choices at CB or elsewhere. You can opt for high fat: eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns. You can even opt for the worst of the worst; biscuits and gravy; i.e., cooked wheat and lard smothered with liquid lard and wheat. If you don't want all the fat, then your other choice is carbs on top of carbs; pancakes with artificial maple flavored, high fructose corn syrup.

Then there is a balance with hot or cold cereal, fruit and milk. You might as well just eat that in the RV.

Not bad for TV dinners, just like Denney's in the old days.

Just what the "Greatest Generation was raised on" kinda makes you hungry.

And kind of makes you understand why the "Greatest Generation" has such high incidences of heart disease and diabetes. [emoticon]

You forgot to mention the rest of the triad: obesity.
