With a line wrapped around the signature front porch, it took half an hour just to file in all the people waiting outside the new Cracker Barrel in Sacramento on Monday morning. The restaurant is the only Cracker Barrel in Sacramento and just the second in California.
“It’s been everything we thought it was going to be, and a little bit more,” said Ronnie Loy, general manager.
The atmosphere inside was lively, with customers joking about the number of corporate employees wearing suits for the grand opening. The restaurant serves up Southern-style comfort food, with staples like country-fried steak, biscuits and gravy and, of course, grits.
