“Friendly & fun fast food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

We stopped by on a road trip and were well satisfied overall. It's nothing fancy, but has a large selection of fried and grilled foods. You may get more food for the money at a chain fast food place, but the history of this little place makes it more memorable. Food was adequate and servers were super friendly.

“You will ALWAYS get a good meal at Carters”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

consistently good, you cannot go wrong with this little piece of history, family owned, been in Willcox since 1953.
The Carter Burger is our favorite but the steak finger basket with white gravy is also good. In my opinion the is THE best place to eat in Willcox, hands down

“always great”

We stop at Carters whenever possible and have never received bad svc or bad food. If you want a cheap burger, go to MacDonalds...real old fashioned burgers, also like the steak finger basket..yum

Its a little place around for years featured in Arizona Highways. I remember this place back when I was in Grade school we would stop and eat while catching a movie in town.
