I eat at Cracker Barrel regularly, both where I live, and when on the road. I have NEVER seen blacks treated with anything but courtesy. Sometimes there is a wait to get served or to eat, but that simply happens. It can abe a very busy place. My experiences are anecdotal, but just have never seen anything like the suit describes.

Sometimes there is a wait
There is often a wait, but that's why they have the giftshop. It's fun to browse around, but as the other poster said, all the stuff-these are my words-is very Norman Rockwell-like, from the 40s and 50s, and maybe that made CB a target to the shakedown folks. I like sitting by the fireplace and getting a side sampler. Mmm mmm good. In fact, in response to this story, I think I will eat breakfast there tomorrow. And Saturday (oo boy, political activism is tough, but I think I can handle it).
