5 Reasons Cracker Barrel Is The Best Chain Restaurant In The United States, No Doubt About It

It's just factual.

Cracker Barrel

The United States is home to over a million different restaurants, but none can compare to the 645 Cracker Barrel locations. Cracker Barrel saw the consumerist nature of the U.S. and capitalized on it by combining a shop with a restaurant — to this I say, genius! Absolutely genius! Cracker Barrel is there on every long car ride with entertainment and food that will last you hours. For reasons other than their billboards that boast, "Big Pancakes, Cute Syrup," Cracker Barrel stands the test of time as the best American restaurant.

1. The Peg Game

Every table at Cracker Barrel comes equipped with this peg game that not only provides entertainment but also tells you how intelligent you are. It's a good way to distract yourself from thinking of all the delicious calories you're about to consume.

2. The Old Country Store

You can get everything from Cracker Barrel jams and foodstuffs to blankets and rocking chairs. This store can distract you for hours and leave your wallet a little bit lighter.

3. The rocking chairs

After you've acquired a food baby close to bursting, you can sit and relax on a giant rocking chair on the front porch. You can nurse your food baby while also pretending to tell your nonexistent grandchildren about "back in your day."

4. The price to size ratio of food

Cracker Barrel not only gives you a huge entree but also includes your choice of 2-3 sides overflowing with food. You'll leave close to bursting with some leftovers for later.

5. The polite staff

It's that southern hospitality they all must have because I've never once had a bad waiter/waitress experience at Cracker Barrel. Once, the waitress gave us free drinks and discounts on our food just because they forgot some sides. A+ customer service!

Cracker Barrel may not be the restaurant at the top of your dining list, but it sure should be. Cracker Barrel is like a good friend: loyal, caring, and always there for you even if you haven't talked in a while. We should be grateful for this gem of a place and not take it for granted. Next time you're on a road trip, stop by for good food and an even greater experience.

The patriots of the American Revolution aren't the only ones who gave us the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
