COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) – When talk of a Cracker Barrel coming to Columbus surfaced earlier this month The phrase I’ll believe it when I see it was murmured more than once. Well it might be time to start believing. Dirt work is underway at the restaurant site near the intersection of 18th avenue and sixth street north.
