This one is a no-brainer. The Cracker Barrel is famous for home-cooked food, and fun gizmos and chachkies. Kids love chachkies. Let them wander around the back of the store looking at country albums, welcome mats, bird houses, and toys and games, and, when they get back, order them some home style chicken fingers, or a juicy burger. Even fussy eaters won't refuse french fries, or delicious mashed potatoes. Plus, you love the food and the chachkies (you know you do), so it's a win-win. If your kids see you eating and having a good time, they'll have a good time too. Give it a try, and if it works, you'll know you can take them to kid-friendly Cracker Barrels in PA or anywhere.
