Selena Gomez and Spring Breakers co-star Ashley Benson were spotted chowing down at a Cracker Barrel restaurant in St. Petersburg, Florida, earlier this week. The ladies are there with much of the rest of the cast and crew while filming takes place on St. Petersburg Beach.
According to a report from Hollywood Life, Selena was familiar with Cracker Barrel restaurants but Ashley had never eaten at one. The former Wizards of Waverly Place star
was excited to show her friend and cast mate how delicious the home cooking at Cracker Barrel can be.
“Yay!! It’s @ashbenzo ‘s first time at Cracker Barrel!! And of course she’s in love! ” Selena tweeted.
The two young ladies had lunch at Cracker Barrel and then spent some time browsing in the restaurant’s large gift shop. Both girls bought some candles before heading back to the set.
Cracker Barrel is a very inexpensive place to dine, and they serve what is considered to be homestyle cooking. Lots of comfort food is available at Cracker Barrel. These are the kinds of places Selena Gomez tends to dine. She saves the upscale restaurants for very special dates with boyfriend Justin Bieber or for special events. She’s really a very down to earth girl.
It must have been fun for any fans who recognized they were dining at the same place Selena Gomez and Ashley Benson had lunch in St. Petersburg, Florida. The two actresses caught some photos of each other on their phones, and you can see them by clicking here.
