What I learned today…
If you want biscuits before your meal at Cracker Barrel, you have to ask for them that way.
My BF Jason and I partook of of typical IKEA tradition today by stopping at Cracker Barrel in Tempe before heading to IKEA. There are several reasons for this:
- Cracker Barrel is in Tempe (almost Chandler) and frankly too far to drive to simply eat there without an additional motive.
- I typically eat too much at Cracker Barrel and the subsequent several mile walk around IKEA is a great way to work off/digest all that Cracker Barrelly starchy goodness.
- We used to eat at the IKEA restaurant before each tour of IKEA, however every time we did I got sick and had to make an emergency trip to the bathroom in the middle of my IKEA experience. NO GOOD!
Therefore we started off our sojourn with a delicious meal of hearty goodness at the CB. Once again, when we were asked if we wanted biscuits, cornbread or both — we unanimously claimed all biscuits. We were both pretty hungry and wanted those bitches tout de suite. But no dice. The brought the biscuits with the meal. I did notice, however that a family two tables down from us asked if they could have their biscuits right away and the server said no problem and brought them right out. Note for future visits — ask for the biscuits up front!
