Went for lunch after a day of traveling , needed to eat out because I had no food at home. Ordered the fajita burrito, it was wonderful. My daughter had the sliders . We were both impressed with service and food.

April 2018 We hadn’t been to J Carter for about a year. Remembering that it was pretty good, we took guests there for dinner. Unfortunately, it was not as good as we had recalled. The entrees that were served to our guests (NOT picky eaters)...More
