Great food, outstanding service along with excellent diner choices and prices. Showcased a year or so ago as one of Ohio’s top 20 eateries. Small town flavor with big time satisfaction.

Food is good. Best burgers and shakes, but can't help but be grossed out watching wait staff take money and then handle food. Also noticed a server cough on her hand and not wash hands, as well as clean dishes dropped on the floor and...More

Carl's is a Chillicothe landmark. The food is great and the staff are very friendly. This is a must eat here if you are coming to Chillicothe.

A little greasy spoon place on the edge of downtown. Very cheap food for the portion sizes and flavor. It has a small off the street parking lot. It is a local favorite.

We went by the reviews and gave it a try for Sunday breakfast. It opens at 8:00 on Sundays. We were very impressed with how clean the place was, even the restrooms. We both had omelets, one veggie and one bacon. Delicious! They made great...More

I do not believe it has a gluten free menu. Try to contact them and ask directly. Locate their address and find a phone number and call them.
