The last time we ate here I had a roast beef sandwich. Three hours later I ended up in Marshall Hospital with food poisoning. Never been so sick in my life. This is not the place to eat!!

We have not been into a Carrows for about 10 years now. When I went into one to order and watched a waitress pick salad up off the floor and serve it to a customer we have not been back.

We've eaten here once a month for the past year. The food is usually pretty good (the standard fare, like hamburgers) and the waitresses are usually very pleasant. However, the service is consistently SLOW...really SLOW. On more than one occasion, we have chosen to leave...More
