“Institution for Lunch”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

O'Carr's is a lunch institution in Homewood. Lines will be long at lunch but the chicken salad and fruit plate and the peanut butter milkshakes are worth the wait

“A Great Little Delicatessen”
Reviewed June 1, 2012

O'Carr's has been around as long as I can remember, serving delicious sandwiches, soups & their famous Chicken Salad & Fruit Plate. The atmosphere is casual & cheerful. It is small & tight so be ready to chat with the folks at the tables next to you. I almost forgot --- they serve the best milkshakes in the world.

Reviewed May 2, 2012

Only eaten here twice--because it is so crowded and parking is a problem. Food is great.
