Cracker Barrel Old Country Store launched a simplified dinner menu on August 4 that includes new dinner recipes across three different menu categories, Home Cooked Classics Starting at $7.99, Down Home Daily Dinners Under $10, and Cracker Barrel Favorites. The menu additions include:
“Home Cooked Classics include the Maple Bacon Grilled Chicken with two grilled chicken breasts topped with sweet n' smoky maple glaze, bacon, and melted cheese, plus choice of two country sides, and buttermilk biscuits or corn muffins.
Down Home Daily Dinners offer a different meal each day of the week with Saturdays featuring the Country Fried Pork Chops, two crispy hand-breaded fried pork chops smothered in roasted pan gravy, plus choice of two country sides; and Sundays spotlighting the Pot Roast Supper, an oven-braised beef roast with red potatoes, carrots, onions, celery and tomatoes in a savory beef broth – plus, each daily dinner includes a choice of buttermilk biscuits or corn muffins.
Cracker Barrel Favorites pay homage to Cracker Barrel's signature, craveable dishes highlighted by the introduction of the Barrel-Cut Sugar Ham, a generous portion of Cracker Barrel's extra thick-sliced bone-in Sugar Ham steak, served with choice of three country sides, and buttermilk biscuits or corn muffins.”
The menu additions aren’t the only updates, as there are a few updated recipes. One of those is the Cracker Barrel Sampler, now offering a portion of Chicken n' Dumplins, full-size meatloaf and thick sugar cured or country ham, and served with a choice of three country sides.
"These new dinner features were designed to celebrate the craveable, homestyle food our guests love while delivering on our promise to provide country cooking at a fair price," says Cammie Spillyards-Schaefer, vice president of culinary . "According to our research, 66 percent of Americans who visit a casual dining restaurant at least once a quarter say they are craving familiar comfort foods more than ever. The world around us looks a little different right now, but one thing that hasn't changed is the need for comfort and the ability to connect with others in meaningful ways, including around the dinner table – and these new dinner dishes are the perfect centerpiece."
