Nice breakfast! Took care of my food allergy without issue😊 Good coffee and good corned beef hash. The waitresses are fast, efficient, likable and do they hustle! Nice established family type restaurant!

You can get a good meal at a decent price. They have a nice variety on the menu. The restaurant itself is old and kind of falling apart, but the friendly staff and good food balance it out.

We love our Carlos. Breakfast lunch supper. Homemade pies. The waitresses know everyone and never have to ask for refills. Owner goes around always ask about your food etc. Haven’t had a bad meal ever.

A landmark of the town known for its tenderloins. The food is ok. The atmosphere is very outdated. The restaurant is worn but clean. The wait staff and bus kids are a delight.

My family and I go to Carlos often for breakfast and it's great! Recently I needed a breakfast catered for my company and my first thought was Carlos. We had Eggs, Bacon, Sausage Links, American Fries (home fries), and obviously we had biscuits & gravy!...More

Been eating Carlo's burgers since I was a kid. Very good burgers, much better than most fast-food options. Sit-down meals are OK, service is always friiendly and courteous, good prices.
