Enjoying reading along and Texas Road House has now been added to my list as the food looks great and we're staying at Encandata too so not far to go.

Liking the look of Texas Roadhouse, think my hubby would be in steak heaven! We love Longhorns but be nice to try somewhere different for a change.

$90 for the Texas Roadhouse seems so reasonable!

CRACKER BARREL

Please excuse the quality of photos in this one.

This has been on the to do list for a while. On previous visits wed never been located close to one so now we were situated on the 192 the gave us a perfect opportunity to try it. When I pictured Cracker Barrel in my head I saw something from backward, out in the middle of nowhere Town, USA. Perhaps its the penchant for grits on the menu or maybe just because Im slightly odd.



The girls werent that happy about going out to breakfast and this reflected in the meal itself.

When we tried to go the other day on Memorial Sunday and there was a queue out the door but when we turned up at 8.30am Wednesday morning it was very quiet. I was hoping to see an old timer with no teeth sitting on one of the rocking chairs outside, whittling away while drinking moonshine but sadly not. No Duelling Banjoes on the speakers either.

We walked through the shop to be seated in a very quiet restaurant.The girls were bickering and arguing so I wasnt in the best of mood because of this. This unfortunately comes out in the lack of photos. Food photo fail.

Our sever came quickly and took drink orders while we had a look at the menu. The girls werent particularly happy about the kids menu so we just ordered them a couple of pancakes each with some fruit. Both didnt like their pancakes. They said it was the oil they were cooked with but I dont know.




A grumpy Lily.

Kelly ordered apple and cinnamon pancakes. She really liked hers. She thought the pancakes were good and found them much nicer to eat than the ones at Kekes(I duck as write this incase Kekes apostles throw forks at me.)




The cool little bottles the maple syrup is served in. Kelly would drink this neat.


As I seem fixated with old timers, I went for the Old Timers breakfast. I went sans eggs though as I dont like them. I had pancakes, hash brown casserole, bacon and sugar ham. I really enjoyed mine. The hash brown casserole was particularly good. Both me and Kelly enjoyed the pancakes and had no idea what the girls were on about to be honest.



I thought the food was good and I liked Cracker Barrel. The kids behaviour ruined it a little bit but Id definitely like to try it again one day. Strangely being so quiet was a little off putting as well. It cost $58 with tip.

Once wed finished we had a little look in the shop before heading off for the day.





Without the kids it would have been good but probably sadly relegated to less memorable meals.

I think after a few breakfast the kids found it a bit generic and the same which was a shame.

Just catching up with this report, it has been great and you have eaten at so many great places, it is also surprising the ones youve enjoyed the most! We stay along 192 most of the time now when we are in orlando, part hotel and part time villa, i struggle with 2 weeks in hotel! I will defintely needto try Texas roadhouse, looks great and we also love longhorns, just so many places to eat at! I need to check out you other report too!
I think all kids get so tired with the whole holiday thing, DD changes quite a bit to being a bit grumpy too after about ten days!
