Cracker Barrel Gluten-Free Menu 2021

Cracker Barrel does a pretty good job of helping people with food allergies or trying to eat gluten-free. Ask for their “Nutritional Information Guide.”  Of course, there is no guarantee of cross-contamination but at least they try to provide some options.

According to their allergen menu:

Regarding gluten, menu items that do not contain gluten do not necessarily meet the definition of “gluten-free” for those who are highly sensitive. We recommend our guests with food allergies speak with the restaurant manager prior to placing an order, to make the kitchen aware of your needs.

Cracker Barrel History

Cracker Barrel is an American restaurant chain with more than 640 locations found across 43 states in America. This restaurant is the brainchild of Dan W. Evins who opened the first location on September 19, 1969 in Lebanon, Tennessee. By 1977, the company had expanded to include 13 locations from Tennessee all the way to Georgia. This rapid expansion was made possible thanks in part to Dan’s local friends and associates who helped with financial support and logistics.

The restaurant became publicly traded in 1992, receiving lots of support from loyal customers and investors who bought shares in large numbers. With massive praise and growing loyalty from guests, the company’s growth potential went onto a national stock exchange platform. Cracker Barrel grew consistently throughout the 80’s and 90’s, attaining an overall market value of $1 billion by 1992. A year later, their revenue was roughly twice that of other popular family restaurants in the country.

Between 1997 and 2000, the total number of Cracker Barrel restaurants had increased to well over 420. As a company tradition, employees usually join hands with each other to assist their fellow coworkers in times of trouble. What initially started as simple acts of generosity later evolved into a charity organization known as Cracker Barrel Cares. A worker funded non-profit association formed to help employees in their times of need.

In 2016, the company began delivering its authentic home-style products to supermarkets across the country. Currently, there are a variety of hams, bacon, baking mixes, deli meats and more which are available at grocery stores under the company’s secondary brand name of CB Old Country Store. They are all fresh and ready to be prepared at home.

Cracker Barrel has also ventured into the fast casual industry by opening Holler & Dash Biscuit House where they feature a chef-inspired menu that represents the values and traditions of the South.

  1. The new gluten free menu consists of no full meals! Plenty of sides but if you want a meal? I was disappointed because we looked it up online before choosing to go there for my grandson’s diet restrictions just to find out that we should have gone to Chick-fil-A! He could eat more than corn & greenbeens.

  2. The gluten free menu at Cracker Barrel is incredibly confusing. They do not list everything– just sides. But if you ask and you look online, things like hamburger, steak, fish, and chicken are gf. The list above is MUCH more accurate. Glad I came here before eating!

    • Had you never gone their before? Part of their menu has always consisted of making your own meal. They also have no problems with substituting sides, etc….
      This is a great place to go for people who have Celiac.

      • Unless you want a breakfast. The last time I looked at their GF menu in house, they listed ZERO meats. You’d better like eggs.

  4. Where is your information from regarding GF at Cracker Barrel? Their Allergen Menu does not show any entrees (meats) at all…for any Allergen. Thanks!

    • Hey Alyson,
      Our information comes from a couple of local Cracker Barrel menus as well as reaching out to their corporate office. However, we’ve seen tons of variations depending on the Cracker Barrel. So always better to ask in person when visiting Cracker Barrel.

  5. Just went there today, my only options were vegetables and a couple of salads. Ordered the chef salad with no croutons, it came with croutons. The server was very apologetic and brought me a new one but still. Very very disappointed.

    • Hey Beth! Ya, that sounds about right. I’ve been to Cracker Barrel a couple times and it was always disappointing. I really wish they would help cater to those needing to eat gluten-free.

    • Just ate there today. Recently diagnosed with celiac disease, I went to the website to see what I could order before going. Maybe they’ve changed in the past month or so but I can choose from several options. Hope you give them another chance!

  6. I don’t know why the person posted that they have all those other options on the menu. They don’t. I worked as a manager at Cracker Barrel and the best thing to do is speak to a manager. Ask what can be prepared gluten free and make sure the manager knows what you have ordered. The manager will follow the order and make sure it doesn’t get cross contaminated.

  7. Their hard copy gluten free menu implies that they think meat has gluten in it. Lol. I had a long talk with a manager when first diagnosed (thanks Todd in Pensacola!) and he got me squared away in spite of the confusing published menu. Thanks for this update.

    • Hey Kay!
      Yes, I would say Cracker Barrel has one of the most confusing gluten-free menus out there. They are constantly changing things, and there are many differences when it comes down to the local Cracker Barrel itself. So always better to ask in person, in my opinion.

  8. I think they use soy sauce in the meat seasonings so that makes them not safe for gluten free. I am always disappointed just eating veggies.

  9. Gluten Free menu is very popular both at the restaurants and online. I have Celiac Disease and can order gluten free port chops, steak, grilled chicken, lemon pepper fish without the lemon pepper just put lemon on the side. Of course most all of the vegetables are gluten free thank you restaurant owners.

  10. WE WERE SO HOPEFULL THE NEW Cracher Barrel in Riverview would now realize there many people who now know they must eat Gluten Free. My Dear Aunt had Celiac Disease and it killed her. It is a deadly diseases if not eating Gluten Free foods.
    Travelers stop at Cracker Barrles , but are at the mercy of what they put infront of a diner. VERY UNCONCERNING!!

  11. I do not trust the above mentioned menu items at all, and it does not agree with the paer that you will get in the restuarant. If you want to eat at CB, you better like veggies and eggs, cause thats all you’re getting. NO meats are on their GF menu.

    • Hey Jerry,
      I’ve updated the menu above. Cracker Barrel finally posts their allergen menu online! We have to keep pushing for restaurants to do this.

  12. Our Cracker Barrel was a weekly night out until they stopped the grilled pork chop which my daughter was able to eat with her Celiac. I agree that they would do so much more business if they actually had a gluten free menu. They are hurting their business not only in the resturant but also gift shop, who can go there and not buy something.

    I am really disappointed and I know our whole Celiac group (38+family) have stopped going there.
