Absolutely one of the best home style burgers I've ever had. There are few places in the country like this any more, and Carriss's is a treasure in our area! Great friendly people and unique ambiance make this a perfect stop for lunch or groceries.

I live not far away cross country from Carriss' Grocery. It is always fun to call ahead and order their custom made burgers for lunch take home or eating inside one of the last general stores in the region. Food is fresh and NOT institutional or typical fast food. Just juicy good!

Good burger and fresh fries, it is very popular with the locals so you know that the food is good. It is advised to order what everybody else is eating.

Old country store with a deli that is a family run place, that treats you like family. The few, and varied tables, may find you being joined for your meal with other locals who frequent the place. Great burgers and fries, as well as everything else. Browse the old hardware goods after you finish eating. Junkie and his wife are... More

Let me start with the obvious. This place is not McDonalds! If you're adventurous, take 64, then take exit 35 and make a left off the exit if coming from Lexington or a right from Louisville. Take 714 about 5 miles to the blinking light and you're there. And old gem of a store with a family style seating/eating area... More

One of our favorite places to stop for lunch when passing through this way. It's like going back in time.....farmers sitting around the pot belly stove during the winter, people move over and share their table with you if you need a spot to sit and eat, get your own drink and ice from a cooler, friendly owners, amazing burgers...

We stopped in at Cariss's to buy some bait on our way to Taylorsville Lake, but they were out. They told us their usual guy hadn't come in recently. My husband saw their restaurant in the back of the store and the homemade pie sitting on the counter, so we ended up staying to eat before we headed out to... More
