We have been to Carol's several times for breakfast. It is definitely home cooking. The price is great for the quantity and quality of food that is served. The wait staff has always been pleasant. Will be trying out their weekend breakfast buffet soon.

While this place doesn't offer the most in an environment, it's breakfast buffet on Sundays is worth the visit for me. And their warm apples add to the meal. Yes, the price isn't bad either.

Rusty and team always make you feel special for dining at Carols. The food bar for breakfast offers a good variety of home cooked items; my favorite, hipped beef! Why go to fast food corporate spots when you can have down home, feel good food...More

Went there this morning with my brother....visiting for a few days. $8.75 for the breakfast buffet. The biscuits and sausage gravy are delicious! Good value for what they serve. Not crazy about the buffet table it's served on....not sure it was exactly keeping the food...More

Carol's is a great place for home cooking. It's not a fancy place to go, the food isn't fancy. But everything is good. They specialize in breakfast, their pancakes are delicious. I also enjoy their Brunswick Stew.
