The restaurant, which is expected to open in mid-February 2019, will be 10,000 square feet — including its signature front porch and rocking chairs — and will be able to seat 180 people, The Tribune reported in June.
The Santa Maria location will be Cracker Barrel’s third in California. The chain has one location in Sacramento and another in Victorville.
