“Good deli”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

This is a quaint little deli in downtown Homewood. They have a very good chicken salad and fruit plate. They get very busy during the lunch hour.

“Killer Chicken Salad”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

I don't know what they do to it, but O'Carr's chicken salad is out of this world! Even the bread is good. The food and service are both consistently above average and their prices are more than affordable.

“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.

“lunch”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

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