I've e-mailed Cracker Barrel in the past as well. Just because the options they list are "health-conscious", that doesn't necessarily mean they fit into everyone's plan.

Maybe if enough people request it, they will publish their information.

Thanks for the link to Sonny's info! My son works there, and although he's not allowed to wait on family, I have a suspicion we'll be eating there a bit more!

I have found Sonny's info on their website at media.sonnysbbq.com/pdf/Nutrition.pd
f
. You may not have found it using Google because it is a downloadable .pdf file, rather than an html webpage. For Cracker Barrel, I agree, it would be great if they posted their nutritional values. I usually estimate using values from other similar restaurants, like Bob Evans (which are in the Spark Nutrition Tracker). I will e-mail Cracker Barrel as well to ask that they post this important information.

I have found that some restaurants do not make the nutritional information available on their website. I went to both Cracker Barrel and Sonny's BBQ recently and while I tried to choose healthy menu items (Beef Veggie soup/salad at Cracker Barrel, Smoked turkey with cornbread, green beans, and cole slaw at Sonny's) a Google search later showed neither of these restaurants has made their nutritional information available.

I would suggest that we start e-mailing these companies and letting them know that we would appreciate this information. I've already done this.
