Cracker Barrel: Today's the day

Brace yourself!

It's time.

The Cracker Barrel Era arrives for real in Delco this morning.

Friday we were there for the special preview at the county's first Cracker Barrel, located in the suddenly booming Stewart Avenue area across from the Boeing plant in Ridley Township.

Today the restaurant opens to the public.

There probably won't be many people sitting on those classic white rockers on the front porch of the eatery as a cold drizzle continues to fall on the region.

But the coffee and the other classic American fare will be going strong inside.

We'll be there to detail opening day, and delve a little deeper into why Delaware County is so revved up about the newest entry on the casual dining scene.

Get 'Crackin', Delco !
