This is a perfect place to dine outside on a nice day. The food is ALWAYS good and prepared to order. They have a big salad bar and some of the best pies on earth. SAVE ROOM FOR PIE

My family goes to Carpos at least once a month, due to their superior burgers and great salad bar. We like to add things to our burger. Nice that they have 20+ other things you can order, in case you are not in the mood...More

This restaurant has the Best Burger on their home made roll and tasty, real onion rings. They also have an extensive salad bar. Plus their Olliberry pie is a generous size and made in house.

We absolutely love the salad bar, pasta and any meat dishes. We haver been disappointed in any of our visits there. The food is fantastic and I like the bus guys who always work hard.

Very fun local spot for really good casual food. Salad bar is really good with lots of variety. Soups and specials are delicious, with lots of seafood featured. We eats here a lot.

Went here after a hike and had the seafood kebob. Very good and fresh could maybe use some seasoning. Looks like a great salad bar yet did not have it. Will definitely be back.
