Cracker Barrel is a family-friendly casual-dining restaurant chain, probably best known for its old-timey feel: country music singers performing, rocking chairs to sit on, a traditional front porch… Food-wise, you’ll find Southern-style delights such as fried chicken dishes, pot pies, and various American classics like meatloaf. But are there vegan items at Cracker Barrel?
According to the online menu and allergen information, there are 12 vegan options at Cracker Barrel that do not contain animal products. From the breakfast menu, you’ll have two options: Fried Apples and Grits. Other than that, we recommend ordering the Country Vegetable Plate, a dish that allows you to create your own meal from a selection of sides. Choose from Breaded Fried Okra, Baby Carrots, Whole Kernel Corn, Fresh Steamed Broccoli, and more. Just remember to say no to the bread options that come with the plate, as both the Buttermilk Biscuits and the Corn Muffins contain dairy and egg.
It may also be worth checking with your server that vegetable sides are 100% vegan, as some may be seasoned with meat-based seasonings. Talk to your server and double check before you order to make sure you’re ordering truly vegan food at Cracker Barrel.
