Is Cracker Barrel open on Christmas? If you're searching for the restaurant's holiday hours and information on Cracker Barrel's Christmas dinner takeout menu, here's the low-down on the popular country-themed restaurant.

If you're hoping to eat out on Christmas day, cross Cracker Barrel off your list. You won't be able to enjoy the turkey, ham and fixings that were served on Thanksgiving because the restaurant will be closed on Dec. 25, 2013.

Cracker Barrel will close on Christmas Eve (Dec. 24) at 2 p.m. and will not re-open until 6 a.m. on December 26.

What about Cracker Barrel's popular "Meals to Go"? The chain's "Country Sized" takeout meals are available before Christmas, but you won't be able to place or pickup an order on Christmas Day.

However, you can get a complete dinner for six on Christmas Eve if you call ahead and pick up before the restaurant closes at 2 p.m.

Country Sized Meals to Go serve six. Choose from an entree, three sides, biscuits or bread. Prices vary by location. Call your local Cracker Barrel to order or stop by the restaurant to order.
