Cracker Barrel

There are Cracker Barrels in Michigan but the first thing I heard about it was that it was the favorite restaurant of a friend's husband who I thought had awful taste. We ended up eating here on the drive to Tennessee. I think the Southern expatriates I was with saw it as my initiation or something.

Anyway, I loved it. I love the side dishes in Southern food. I had meatloaf with fried okra and hash brown casserole. The meatloaf was meh. It was okay, but very ketchup-y. It was the least favorite thing I had. The fried okra was awesome. The hash brown casserole was great but I might try mac and cheese next time cuz I'm a huge mac and cheese fan. I also wanted to try the greens.

I also got to try both the biscuits and cornbread. I think I prefer the biscuits just because you can eat them with jam and I liked having a bit of sweet fruitiness with that meal.
