Today the Sacramento Bee reported that the the Sacramento area will be getting a Cracker Barrel in 2018.
It will be interesting to see where they end up building the first Sacramento area Cracker Barrel. I am sure that over time there will be more than one. I hope that it will be south of the city, but it will most likely be east toward Reno or west toward San Francisco as tourist traffic is heavier along these routes.
Last December there were rumors about a Cracker Barrel in the Arden-Arcade area of Sacramento. Perhaps this will indeed be the location. However, I believe that it will more likely be on the outskirts of the metro area rather than in the middle.
Earlier this year it was announced that the First Cracker Barrel in California would be in Victorville and just this week an expected opening date of February 2018 was given.
I am glad that they have now announced one closer to me 🙂
There had been rumors of a Cracker Barrel location in Herndon which is just north of Fresno. However, the location is no longer under consideration. See: Cracker Barrel in Fresno?
I would not count Fresno out as an early location. However, I would expect a location on I-5 between Northern and Southern California before I would expect one on Hwy 99. I-5 is the more traveled route and has less eating options along the way.
