Well, be sure to read the above posts. It may save a trip.
I have ate alot at other Cracker Barrel's because of my job and I can not complain on their food at other cities and states.I dont know nothing about EBT except it being a food stamp card.I have never had to use one.You make a business good by having a clean place,nice employees and a good price for the food.But you will have some people to come in and try to tear the place down by giving it a bad name or writing on bathroom walls and placing their boogers all over the place.This is when they need to call the police and put their A double S in the pokey.

Oh yes it's still in business has been continually for going on seventy five years now we all wear gas masks to shield us from the odor. We are all given a new one every two years. I'm glad to provide you with this information as you've evidently been in a coma or maybe you live under a rock. Or you're just plain ignorant either way now you know.

ryans doesnt suck. Some ppl that eat there or work there have a sucky attitude. Its all about the atmosphere&price. Ppl come on. If u get so so service at one place&great at another. Where do u think u will go back. I happen to know ppl that work at CB&ryans. Some r quite rude&at both places. Then they are very friendly ppl at the same places.

Yeah, true....but the rude ones won't last as long at CB.

They're more careful about their image and, more sooner than later, will ferret out crabby, difficult people since they don't want customers to associated such qualities with CB in general.

Ryans, well, they wouldn't want that either....but don't have to be as careful...since most of their customers are mostly "trough feeders"...who don't really care what the staff is like and long as they can eat themselves into a stupor (like your mama).

Why are you people always so hateful? I really don't understand...I've met so many people in "The Boro" and they have all been very nice.
Where does this hate come from on here?

But....I'm not being "hateful"...why, I'd call in Concern.

I mean, what about Cracker Barrel having all those high hopes for the 1st and 3rd of each month? I mean, banking on accepting EBT was gonna be their biggest draw. Just think what a position THEY are in now?

And what about the "deserving" folks of Mobo? So many held back, scrimped and scraped, by only buying Wal-Mart brand cola and chips. You know, saving up that EBT balance for the 21st opening of CB.

Can you image the disappointment of ALL involved? Nobody's hatin' here.

It's located next to Arbys near the Mboro mall. No salad bar, but lots of salad choices on the menu.

I ate there today and the food was very good. The service was awful. Having to ask multiple times, in one instance nearly half a dozen times for something is not acceptable.

That being said, it's their first week and I expected some goofs. If the waitress staff is still making huge screw ups a month from now then it will go the way of Ryans. I suspect they will improve.
