There are a lot of Libera fans out there who are not from the US and may not be familiar with some of the things the boys were talking about in their US Tour blog. I remember asking some of the boys last summer what their favorite US restaurant is, and a lot of them said they love Cracker Barrel. Now in this summer's blogs, the boys have made reference twice to their "beloved Cracker Barrel."
So, what is Cracker Barrel? My dad described it as "if you wanted to build an American restaurant in another country this is exactly what it should look like." We decided that Yuki and her mum from Japan and Minyung from Korea just had to try this all-American restaurant. So while in Houston, 4 of us Americans took them there. :D
Cracker Barrel has a country store attached to it which has lots of oddities including clothes, decorations for your house, music, toys and old-fashioned candy.
One of our favorite things about Cracker Barrel is the peg game that they have on the table for you to play while you wait for your food. You start with one hole open and jump pegs over other pegs. Each time you jump a peg you take out the one you jumped over. It is very strategic. The goal of the game is to have as few pegs left as possible. Our record when we went was 3 (except when I cheated and looked up on my iPhone how to play it. Then I got it down to 1. lol)
The food here is really amazing. Most of it is "comfort food" which is basically like the warm, creamy stuff that makes your stomach really full and makes you feel really tired. :) They bring out hot biscuits and rolls at the beginning. If you ever go, be sure to ask for apple butter to put on your biscuits. It is delicious!
My mom and I both got the chicken and dumplings. We couldn't eat it all!
This is the chicken fried chicken with some fried apples on the side. The apples taste like the inside of an apple pie. Yum!
If you are ever in the US, make sure to try this restaurant out! And then when your stomach is full, you can sit on the porch and rock in the rocking chairs! :D
