The reviews that prompted us to give this place a try seemed too good to be true, but they all say roughly the same thing: you'd never think to go here and even when you arrive you have some doubts, but between the "Cheers"-like atmosphere (it really does seem like everyone knows each other), the outstanding service from Heidi, and...

Stopped in for lunch based on TA reviews - otherwise would not have found the place as it is not in a conspicuous location. Seemed more like a nice bar which happened to serve fantastic food. As mentioned by others, very small but excellent service provided by Heidi, who doubles as bartender. Wife was in heaven with fried bologna -... More

Karsen's is already rated highly on Trip Advisor, so I wanted to try them for lunch while I was shopping in Old Town Scottsdale. This meal was a great experience, so super for what it was, that I considered driving back to Old Town the next day just to have lunch with them again! The restaurant is VERY small -... More

It's just a little hole-in-the-wall bar-type place but the burgers were delicious and inexpensive, accompanied by the largest steak fries I have ever seen. It's open in the off-hours so we came for an early dinner, exhausted after having travelled since 5 AM from the East Coast and not wanting to wait for other restaurants to start serving.

After a long day traveling from the east coast and then checking in to hotel, we went here for a quick meal. We got here about 830 on a Thursday evening and there were only two small tables open. Per other reviews that sent us here, service was very friendly and food was tasty. My only downside was how uncomfortable... More

We randomly chose to eat lunch here today. I had the pulled pork tacos and my mom had the pulled pork sandwich. We both enjoyed our food. The service was outstanding. It is a very small place, but friendly with good food. We also had a berry cobbler for dessert which was great.

Went for lunch on Friday mid-afternoon. It was quiet, for awhile I was the only customer. The service was great; they are friendly people. I had the Karsen salad. It was big, fresh and delicious. The tomatoes tasted great, not those half green hard tasteless tomatoes you get in some salads. The avacado was perfectly ripe. I would like to... More
