The service was friendly and she kept my coffee full. The food came out fast.....oh but it was not close to as one would anticipate . I ordered an omlett with hash browns on the side. The cheese in the omlett was still cold. The greese on the plate from the hash browns had an orange color to it. Like... More

We tried to eat here for dinner, the steak special. We could not eat the meal. The meat did not taste like steak and the vegetables were over cooked. Actually, we were afraid of getting sick.

I've had wonderful meals here and I've had not so wonderful meals here. The amount of food you get also varies. An example would be the amount of french fries on your plate...sometimes they heap the plate with fries and other times you might be lucky to get eight to ten fries with your burger. It is a great location... More

I mentioned breakfast served anytime as it's not easy to find a place open for breakfast other than Micky Dees (aka McDonalds). The good thing is even though it's called the Caribou, you can order just about everything to eat, not just Caribou). They had a nice salad bar at my last visit. It was well stocked. They have a...
