A representative from Cracker Barrel confirmed with Heavy that the restaurants are open today, writing: “We look forward to safely serving guests on our busiest day of the year, both in stores and at home. Our stores will be open regular hours this Thursday, 7 a.m.-9 p.m. in all time zones, unless restricted by local government mandates.”

Not only is Cracker Barrel allowing dine-in in the stores where allowed, but they are also offering numerous take-home Thanksgiving options too.

Because of the pandemic, hours of operation may vary or dining restrictions may be in place depending on local regulations, so you’ll want to check your local Cracker Barrel for specific details. Use the locator here to find your nearest Cracker Barrel restaurant. The store directory will note the store’s status and if the dining room is open or closed. If the dining room is still closed, you can still enjoy curbside, pickup, or delivery.

In addition, Cracker Barrel is still offering curbside, pickup and delivery options in all sizes, no matter how large or small your family may be. You can use the Meals Made Easy planning tool for ideas.
