The cracker keg is running out of food, plates and servers

A customer on TikTok claims a Cracker Barrel restaurant served him cookies on napkins after running out of plates and food. In a video posted to the platform on Tuesday, the TikToker also claims that the waiters left the restaurant while he was there.

Creator Chris (@catdadtok)’s clip has garnered more than 135,800 views on the platform in less than 24 hours. The video shows the creator and several other diners seated at a table in a Cracker Barrel restaurant with napkins spread out on the table.

The audio includes a clip by Nathan Fielder Nathan for you: “Here we go…I hope you’re hungry…for nothing!” A text overlay reads, “Crackerbarrel ran out of plates, food and waiters went out.”

Chris added in the caption, “They gave us cookies so we wouldn’t go hungry and some napkins to eat.”

That report underscored what the video showed — napkins spread out on a Cracker Barrel table and the brief flash of a jammed biscuit resting on one of the napkins, but no plates or other food in sight.

The video didn’t specify a Cracker Barrel location, although the creator noted in the comments that it was his first experience at the chain restaurant. According to the Cracker Barrel website, the company was founded in 1969 to provide interstate travelers with “a consistent, quality place to stop along the way” and “to stretch your legs, refuel, and find a good meal at a fair price.” “.

Commentators were concerned about what Chris reported. “I never liked the place, the food was never good for me, always confused when people bragged about it years ago,” noted one user.

Another, who shared a bad experience at the restaurant, remarked: “Hour between taking our order and eating. Prices have risen sharply.”

Another TikToker came to the platform with sour grapes, sharing, “I applied there when I was 16-17 and said I wasn’t eligible for an interview as I had no server experience.”

Chris replied, “Well with the way the management is running the place it’s not even 1 star.”

Several other users claimed that they too noticed absent Cracker Barrel employees.

One user wrote, “My parents went to one a few months ago and ended up getting a free meal because it took so long because the chef was nowhere to be found…”

Another commenter pointed out that staff leaving a restaurant should be taken as a sign, arguing, “If I see staff going out somewhere… I won’t lie, I’ll go with them.” idky but I feel like I should lol.”

That comment garnered nearly 650 likes in solidarity, and Chris replied, “I wanted to go.”

Several commenters wondered why the creator and his party stayed. While alluding to the fact that this was at the urging of another member of his party, Chris also conceded, “The cookies are pretty good.”

The Daily Dot contacted Chris via TikTok message and Cracker Barrel’s PR team via email.
