I have been eating at Carlos for three years now. Whenever I walk into Carlos, the staff is always looking at the door to see who is coming in. Always a smile on their faces and a greeting, "Good morning, Phyllis". I have my favorites, Elaine, Loralie, Brittany and of course, Miss Karen. But, lately a gal name Carrie is... More

We were touring Santa Rosa with another couple and had no idea where we would like to eat. So...I consulted my trusty GPS. Up comes the name of Carlos' Country Kitchen. We walked in and found the decor less than impressive. We were quite hungry so we decided that we had to give it a try. I'm here to tell... More

Carlos is a good greasy spoon. As much as I love great food and I love cooking, I can respect a place like Carlos'.

This is the place if you want to fill up on classic diner food like pancakes, bacon, country sausage, omelette, sandwiches, burgers. I always enjoy the service. They give 110%. That said, it's not organic, it's not new age, it's not gluten free. Carlos is a classic diner for people who want to feel full when they leave, be served... More

Carlos' Country Kitchen is a great little diner with everything you want in a diner. Great food, I had french toast and perfectly cooked bacon, and great service make this place hard to beat.

We left after not getting acknowledged. The place was crowded and noisy and the staff disinterested.

If you are driving down College Ave. in Santa Rosa and you are really hungry, you HAVE to stop at Carlos' Country Kitchen . . . and here's why. In my experience, hole in the wall foodie places are the best. Yes, some fall short of that declaration but this place FAR exceeds the perception of hole in the walls.... More
