“Pleasant, good "enhanced diner" food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Carrow's is an "enhanced diner"--my own term. The menu has an extensive selection of "comfort" food, and according to the in-house advertising, has been revised recently to go back to the items that made the chain popular. Breakfast is available all day, The prices are very reasonable.

Our waiter was congenial and professional. We ordered big breakfast meals for supper, and had so much food that we had plenty to take away for an early microwave breakfast.

The El Centro Carrow's is very good. We'll eat at Carrow's again.

“Old fashioned sit-down restaurant.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

For a change of menu, Carrows will fill the need. I find the food and service are about average. Plenty of parking.
