I live close by Carl's and have eaten there many times. When the place forst opened was very good, but I would say the last couple of years it has become average. The staff forgets items on the togo orders, on mine banana pudding more than once. The service accross the counter average, the interior many things not so clean. I don't know could be the place has been open for years owner not around I don't know, but Carls isn't on my first place to go BBQ anymore.
