There are many items on the Cracker Barrel menu that I love, but I believe my first meal at the Cracker Barrel in Lufkin will be chicken and dumplings.  That is, of course, if all the rumors and initial filings go through. 

According to a report at KTRE, the south side of Lufkin will soon be getting a Cracker Barrel.  Soon, of course, being the operative word.  A building permit has been picked up by the restaurant chain to build a store near Whitehouse Drive by Taco Bueno but there has been no definitive word on when construction might begin.

Are you excited about the prospects of Cracker Barrel coming to East Texas?
