Breaking news. I can barely contain my excitement.
Cracker Barrel is coming to Pearland. This is not a joke. Everyone’s favorite Country Store just became more accessible. In the past when Cracker Barrel would come up in a conversation, we would wish the restaurant wasn’t located only on the outskirts of town.
No more waiting for pit stops on out-of-town trips to savor this bastion of southern comfort. Cracker Barrel is coming to Shadow Creek Ranch near Beltway 8 and 288.
This past Sunday, a group of us stopped by the Cracker Barrel in Conroe on the way back from Carolina Creek Christian Camp north of Huntsville. The rocking chairs, the country breakfast served all day, the homestyle chicken battered with buttermilk, the cornbread, the biscuits, the walls teeming with history. Sigh.
On another note, I do wish new Pearland would embrace more mom n’ pop shops.
