Here in North Carolina, we are still in Phase II of re-opening after the pandemic. Restaurants are slowly beginning to reopen their dining rooms and most expect sales to be unpredictable. Lots of places are coming up with new ways to create revenue. Cracker Barrel is one of those places.

Cracker Barrel is launching beer and wine service along with some new menu items. They are hoping that this addition will bring more customers to the restaurants. Right now 20 locations across the United States are serving alcohol and more locations are expected to do the same soon.

You’ll have a choice of beer, wine, and mimosas….yum! Love a mimosa. Their mimosas come in two flavors, orange and strawberry, and when tested, people loved them.

If you’re visiting a Cracker Barrel dining room soon, you might also see a “smaller and simpler-to-execute menu” with things like a new-and-improved chicken pot pie and Saturday Fried Pork Chops on it. Lots of restaurants are simplifying their menus to reduce food costs.

If you’re still concerned about having a meal in an actual restaurant, no worries! Cracker Barrel is also planning to continue delivery and curbside pick-up services. Alcohol or not, I’m in as long as Cracker Barrel still serves up their hashbrown casserole. That stuff is awesome! Check out more info here.
