Keto at Cracker Barrel

Keto at Cracker Barrel


Yeah, I know. I also thought Cracker Barrel was all breaded, fried, southern comfort food.

Well, I was wrong.

The first thing you see when you go there is that they go to great lengths to make it into a fun country store.

The decorations are actual,real, and sometimes expensive, advertisement signs and other Americana. They are all real, which takes lots of time and dedication to finding them all.

You get a little history lesson along with your great meal. And the meal can be pretty darned great.

Cracker Barrel started in 1969 by Dan Evins. He was  a sales rep for the Shell Oil company. The idea was originally to have a restaurant and gift store by the gas station to improve gasoline sales.

But the idea became so popular that it became it’s own restaurant chain.

Their food is designed for flavor. Eating keto at Cracker Barrel is not only easy, it’s tasty. They have a great Keto menu.
