Two visits in late 2016 and both had excellent food and good service! The best for me is that their barbecued ribs are made with NO garlic! I am allergic and it is difficult to find good ribs. The serving was huge so I had plenty for the next day. The place is old and getting a bit run down... More

Reasonable price on lunch specials but you have to order a beverage which brings it up to almost normal prices. Asked for unsweetened ice tea with the special and they said they don't have that so I asked if I could just have water with the special and was told no. I would have to order a beverage at full...

Great food and overall good service. There is an attached bar area that you can also get food in. Or stay in the sectioned off dining area for a quieter meal.

They have excellent barbecue ribs, but you will need a lot of napkins. Tender and delicious. A real friendly atmosphere with many guests. Wait time can be a little long because of the great food during the busy hours. Which I think may be every night. Have never been disappointed with their meals. On Tuesday nights, it's 2 for one...

Atmosphere is great, always carnations on the tables. Waiters are great, personable, and efficient, with great memories for what we had last time. The ribs are always great, and large portions. Prime rib was delicious.

Here with a group of family members, the clerk at our motel recommended Carmen's and so glad she did! The eight of us were seated right away, we had wonderful service from a friendly waitress, the check was split (always a plus), the food was great. BBQ ribs just excellent. Liver pronounced by one to be "Heaven on a plate."... More

I love their ribs and they are a great price on Thursdays. Their other food is great also, but I always seem to order the ribs! Service is very good also.

I always sit on the bar side and despite being "bar food" it is all delicious! Wide variety of options and all around good stuff. Great bloody mary's and beers! The staff is great and the owners are really good guys. Always a stop when I roll through town!

Carmen's is my family's "go to" place when we are looking for good food, and great service. Their menu ranges from burgers and sandwiches to steaks and ribs. The bar is sectioned off which keeps the dining room quieter. The service is always fast and friendly. It's a little off the beaten path, but worth finding!
