In the late 1960s, Dan Evins understood people needed a place they could trust when they travel. So in 1969, Evins and a local contractor scratched their building plans in the dirt along Highway 109 in Lebanon, TN. This dusty blueprint marked the spot of the original Cracker Barrel Old Country Store.
Evins believed travelers would appreciate making one stop to get gasoline, a good meal, candy for the kids and some rest from the road. So he built his service station business around the atmosphere of the old country store. The community's unofficial meeting place where folks would gather around a barrel full of saltine crackers and trade some common sense and wisdom with their neighbors.
Almost half a century later, Cracker Barrel remains true to its mission of pleasing people with hearty, made from scratch, comfort food and nostalgic gift items. In short, there's no better place to eat, shop and relax.
