If you did more research you would find that AIDS/HIV was new, fatal and therefore, a very serious concern at that time. The vast majority of people who contracted AIDS/HIV were homosexuals. It was transmitted through bodily fluids. Many people and therefore, restaurants had concerns with homosexuals cooking and serving food to the public. It basically is undetectable until you are tested or become very ill. Imagine yourself being a restaurant owner, would you consider what the liability could be?

The food is shit i always go to Bob Evans for breakfast instead.
Chris Hart

The president of CB was secretly gay and didn’t want to be tempted by handsome gay waiters.

Used to be always a home run in food quality but in the last 2 to 3 years it is hit and miss at best. I travel a lot and it isn't what it used to be, often sloppy and poorly prepared/presented meals.

No Brad’s wife thumbs down

What about their cheese? Its in practically every grocery store.

Never heard about the gay issue but they shouldn't have caved on it. Nothing wrong with supporting moral values. It's going to eventually lead to the calapse of our society. Despite what leftists say, there are moral absolutes that provide a strong foundation for a society to flourish. Homosexuality is one of the many despicable behaviors that chip away at that moral foundation.

Because of brads wife
Hayden The quiet kid

Hey Cracker Barrel I love the food the atmosphere and it's the only place that I can eat something not so healthy and don't even feel bad about it

BRADS WIFE

MochiChoco
Maybe they can restart the gas ( and electric) part of the business now..
chris bogan
They were only successsful cuz of brads wife. #justice4bradswife

It's a place that appeals to a very large demographic of conservative Americans and they are freaking loyal to it. All my religious friends go there frequently. It's an identity thing. The foods good in most of them, as is the service. I don't go out of my way to eat there as it's not the kind of place I support, in values.

The Decline of Payless...What Happened? Cracker Barrel - Why They're Successful 6 months ago   11:10

Payless ShoeSource is the largest store of its kind in the United States but has recently had some tough times. Within the past few years Moody’s has lowered their credit rating multiple times, they’ve closed 800 stores, and filed for bankruptcy. This video takes a look at their rise and fall and attempts to provide explanations for all of it.
