This is a story we have discussed in the past, when will Cracker Barrel finally come to the Jersey Shore? Why not, it's a hugely popular restaurant and we have none here along the Shore, especially in Ocean or Monmouth County. So where would be a perfect place for this tasty treat to be located? I may have the answer!

So here is what I am thinking, what about the Freehold Raceway Mall? There is plenty of property and they could add the brand new Cracker Barrel to the outside venues that already exist at the Freehold Raceway Mall like Cheesecake Factory, Brio Italian Grille, PF Changs, etc. The Freehold Raceway Mall is one of my favorite malls in New Jersey and I think this would be a perfect spot! Maybe put Cracker Barrel into the site formerly occupied by the Christmas Tree Shop? There are a lot of options in Freehold.



Cracker Barrel is headquartered in Lebanon, Tennessee. There are 660 Cracker Barrel Restaurants in the United States (as of 2023) and maybe now it's time for 661 lol with the addition of the Freehold Raceway Mall location?

So what do you think of my idea? I think this is the perfect idea to finally bring a Cracker Barrel to the Monmouth-Ocean area. Currently, there are 6 Cracker Barrel Restaurants in the Garden State, none in the Monmouth-Ocean area. Post your comments below, is this a great solution to the "Cracker Barrel Question" or not?
