My family and I had lunch today at Johnny Carino's. We had an awesome time. Our server was awesome. The hostess was so attentive and great with kids. The lunch specials are great and come with unlimited salad. Our kids love the kid meals too.

Went in for a quick lunch, with a co-worker and my son. Asked for a booth near the bar for the soul reasoning of catching up on some Sunday NFL highlights. As I was approaching our booth with my son in hand, I heard the...More

We rolled into town on a Friday, and needed dinner close to our hotel. This is a chain, which we don't typically prefer, but our experience was great. Even after 8 pm, the restaurant was very clean and the staff extremely personable. For adult-only patrons,...More
