Cracker Barrel Adds New Hand-Breaded Fried Chicken Tenders And New Barrel Bites As Part Of New Homestyle Favorites Lineup


Cracker Barrel introduces new Hand-Breaded Fried Chicken and Barrel Bites as part of the chain’s new Homestyle Favorites lineup at participating locations for a limited time.

Here’s what you can expect to find at a Cracker Barrel near you this summer:

  • Hand-Breaded Fried Chicken Tenders: Crispy hand-breaded and fried chicken tenders, served with dill pickle ranch sauce. You can complete this meal by choosing from two or three Country Sides, plus hand-rolled buttermilk biscuits or corn muffins and real butter.
  • Sweet n’ Smoky Glazed Tenders: Crispy tenders fried and tossed with maple bacon glaze and served with buttermilk ranch for dipping along with two Country Sides.
  • Barrel Bites: Choose from new Loaded Hashbrown Casserole Tots, which is basically the brand’s famous Hashbrown Casserole fried into crispy, bite-sized tater tots loaded with bacon pieces and melted Colby cheese, and served with a side of buttermilk ranch dressing for dipping, or the new Biscuit Beignets made with deep-fried buttermilk biscuit dough tossed in cinnamon sugar and served with butter pecan sauce for dipping.
  • Fruit Stand Tea: Freshly brewed iced tea infused with peach, apricot, and dark cherry flavors.
  • Buttercrunch Caramel Latte: Back for a limited time, this seasonal fan favorite features a blend of butterscotch and caramel flavors, finished with whipped cream, toffee almond crumbles, and caramel drizzle. It also comes paired with a butterscotch thin stick and can be enjoyed iced or hot.

Additionally, for those looking for a convenient Mother’s Day meal or planning additional summer gatherings, Cracker Barrel is also offering a Mother’s Day Family Meal Basket Special and a made-from-scratch Southern Fried Chicken Family Meal Basket To-Go.

Customers who purchase an All-Day Pancake Breakfast Family Meal Basket or Sunday Homestyle Chicken Family Meal Basket for Mother’s Day weekend will get a free $10 Bonus Card for Mom to shop at Cracker Barrel anytime between May 8 and June 13, 2021.

The Southern Fried Chicken Family Meal Basket To-Go comes with 12 pieces of bone-in, fried chicken with honey, served with Buttermilk Biscuits and your choice of two homestyle Summer Sides such as Green Beans, Macaroni n’ Cheese, Hashbrown Casserole, Cole Slaw and more.

The new menu additions and limited time offerings are available for dine-in and curbside pickup at participating Cracker Barrel locations nationwide. Prices may vary.
