“Down home family style meals”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

Good food at good prices, if you're not looking for atmosphere this is a good place to fill your tummy.

“Here's a clue: this place supplies the jail with their meals”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

Do you like grease? Do you like to listen to Rush Limbaugh while you eat? If you answered "no" to either of those questions, keep moving, the Caribou is not the place for you.

“Don't go”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

Interior is dated. Staff is friendly and prices are average. You get a lot of food, but it varies.

“Know when to go”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

We didn't know it, but every Tuesday is meatloaf night at the Caribou. We found ourselves surrounded by locals, some of them who have been coming there for 20 years, just for the meatloaf on Tuesday night. Now I am sorry but no restaurant that makes a big deal out of meatloaf, regardless of how good it is, can lay claim to five stars. On the other hand, it was quite good and the portions were generous (both the meatloaf and whatever else we had ordered just in case). There wasn't really a room for what looked like some really delicious homemade desserts. But the most delightful part, for us, was just chatting with the locals while we watched the scenery through the big picture windows.
