They are pivoting to a new concept. Menu has downgraded. Only one steak on the menu. Minimal choice of sides. Had to laugh at their Happy Hour policy. If you want to eat in the restaurant, you have to pay full price for drinks. The food was bland. One of the worst meals I have had in a city that... More

We have enjoyed Carino's but they have reinvented themselves as "Johnny's Tavern" and it is pretty much like every other pizza, burger and wing bar in Midland - and there are already too many of those. The interior of the restaurant has been completely remodeled and the entire dining room (which now has bench seating - yuck!) is open to... More

Ordered the calzone and half wedge salad. The wedge salad was absolutely amazing, however the first time the calzone came out the bottom was burned so bad that it left black marks on the plate. The second time they attempted to make it the waitress did not even attempt to bring it our just stated that they had burned it... More

Service was great and the main course were delicious. Instead of noodles we ordered our jalapeno tilapia over broccoli. So good. I was not pleased with the dinner salad as it brown ends and several wilted pieces. Looked and tasted old. Other than the salad no problems.

I used to like Carinos but over the years the quality of their food has gone down and the portions have shrunk. The servers are great. We had some foreign items in our food twice last year (plastic top in the wedge salad). The only thing I go there for now is dessert and coffee.

The food is consistently good. We always sit in the bar area and get excellent service. The happy hour prices on beer is the best in town (2.00 for the large glass).

Our 8 member group normally eats at Carino's once a week. First of all, the lights are turned down in the evening so low that you can't read the menu. The last several times we ate there our food was way below expectations. The past two times we were there, there was foreign plastic objects in our salad. Our server... More

We eat here once or twice a month, usually at lunch but sometimes dinner. They generally get the food out quickly and get it right the first time. Lasagna and Skillatini are 2 of my favorites. Try an Italian Margarita, really a good drink with dinner. Great fresh bread when you sit down. Everything Ive had here is good, and... More
