Jim Harbaugh's favorite restaurant is Cracker Barrel

Saturday February 14th, 2015

There's been a lot of positives for Jim Harbaugh in coming home to Michigan, most of which directly relate to the job. 

But a not-so-obvious perk of Harbaugh returning to Ann Arbor? Cracker Barrel.

In an interview with the Mercury News, Harbaugh revealed that not only is Cracker Barrel hands down his favorite restaurant, he takes the whole chain very seriously.

"There's not a Cracker Barrel in California," he said. "There's another fantastic thing about being in the Midwest, is there's a Cracker Barrel."

Harbaugh even knew the chain has a restaurant in Yuma, Arizona, near the border of California. He doesn't have to go nearly as far to find one now –​ just a few miles down the road from the hotel he's been staying at.

"You cannot beat the bacon," he said. "Breakfast is outstanding at the Cracker Barrel."
