We've eaten here several times on our trips to Alamogordo. Yes, it's a chain restaurant but the food is good, service is excellent, and they are open late. Portions are HUGE. I had mac & cheese with chicken which easily could have fed 2-3 hungry people. Alamogordo is not known for its cuisine :) so it's nice to have this... More

Well, having come here based on a glossy tourist brochure (causing us to spend two nights) we had low expectations. Carino's was hardly authentic Italian food. Definitely chain quality - low quality ingredients but vast portions. The saving grace was our absolutely delightful server (will not reveal the server's name for fear of getting the person in trouble!) We had... More

We needed more attention. Got pretty thirsty sitting there waiting to get waited on. Food was good however I've had better. But for this area I guess we can't be too choosy unless we want to travel.

Pieces are very good, food was very good. Better than the next nite at Applebees in Hobbes NM. Would definitely recommend it.

It's hard to mess up Italian but this restaurant food was very lame. Very little flavor and overall bland. Matt the waiter was nice though.

It's been several years since our last visit to Alamogordo and we decided to try Carinos again as it was walking distance from our motel, and we like to get some exercise after driving all day. They have improved in terms of service since our last visit. The food is still excellent and our waitress wouldn't let me empty my... More

My family and I had lunch at Carinos yesterday. The food was pretty good but the service was mediocre. For an Italian place, I would expect very attentive service, our waitress came by as minimally as possible. When we came into the restaurant at about 2pm, there were at least 5 tables that were still unbussed. We waited about 15... More

Staff was pretty friendly. There weren't that many people in the restaurant and we were a party of 8. Drinks came out quick but anything else took forever. Since we waited so long my food came out totally cold including the plate not even warm anymore. I told her to just microwave it since it was easily 1hr 30 mins... More

Arrived after 7 pm. Tired and hungry. Staff was very friendly and both meals were excellent. The two for $20 was more than enough. There was enough for lunch the next day.. Staff was also helpful with things to see in the area

Excellent! The service was good. The only thing was the host. It took her a while to seat is. However, the waiter was awesome. She was quick and checked on us repeatedly. The food was to die for. I'm a sucker for Italian and I highly recommend their Alfredo sauce. The price was well worth the food. Especially the two... More
