Employee Story
Meet Danny, an employee at one of our Nashville, TN locations! He was working in the dining room when he struck up a casual conversation with a guest. Just a few days later, Danny was gifted a car from this unknown guest! We stopped and chatted with Danny and his team to learn more about what makes Danny and this store so special! His team and many other guests said they couldn’t imagine anyone more deserving of this act of kindness. Danny is a true representation of who we are at Cracker Barrel. We’re so lucky to have people like him in our Cracker Barrel family!

everyone at my store is amazing and values everyone. they have lots of benefits that i haven’t taken advantage of. frequent raises too.


DC sends too much of some product sometimes and not enough of others.
