“Pricey for what you Get”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

This place is decent but the food is overpriced for what you get. Just decent - nothing fabulous. The drinks are also quite expensive - and again they are just average.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Good lunch and good service for a chain restaurant. I will probably return on future trips to Odessa.

Typical Carino's. Good food, good service, good price. Very predictable but good. Crowded when we went but ok .Will go again as I like the menu and food.

“Nor horrible.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Pretty average food for the price. The pasta products are kinda dry, you've got to catch them at the right time. The best item they have is the meatball sub. Oh, and the breadsticks are really good too. Those two things make the place worth it.

“Good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

This restaurant appears quite a bit cleaner than the restaurant in Midland. The food is good, as chain food Italian style restaurants go.

I love the Jalapeño Tilapia. If you are avoiding carbs, order the sautee'd garlic in place of the pasta! GOOD CHOICE!!
