This is the closest Cracker Barrel to the Washington state border, and Coeur d’Alene, Idaho is only 1/2 hour from Spokane. According to the manager, this place has only been opened since June 2016, so its brand new.
We narrowed our choices to the Uncle Hershel’s favorite for me (pork chop, egg, hash brown casserole), while Stephen had the Meat Sampler (eggs, 3 types of meats, hash brown casserole, and fried apples). Both of our breakfasts came with a side of grits and biscuits with gravy.
The pork chop came out perfect and not overcooked. I did mention to the server I wanted more “medium” as places tend to cook the heck out of a chop. Coffee refills came many times, and we left satisfied. Best of all, it was dirt cheap.. $22 for 2 people.
Someone commented CB is a glorified Denny’s. I beg to differ. Both places do an excellent job in breakfast, but I get that hometown feel when I visit a Cracker Barrel, and wish that California would allow them to build a restaurant. I guess my next closest one is in Las Vegas, opening July 25.
