Sam: 1.5 out of 5 Stars (19 September 2015)
Paul: 1 out of 5 Stars (19 September 2015)
Parental Note: As you will see from the boys' review below, this place was awful and it is no surprise that (sometime between September 19th and the publishing of this review) Johnny Carino's on Camp Creek closed permanently. So, the review is a moot point; but, the boys still wanted to post it.
Sam: So. We were coming home from the airport after we picked up my mom from her trip to Puerto Rico. We were hungry and looking for something to eat. We always see Johnny Carino’s whenever we go to the airport. My dad said, “Let’s try it.”
So, we went in the parking lot and we saw not that many cars there. We were like, “Hmmm…” Paul was like, “Let’s pick something else.” We went inside.
We got our seats immediately. We sat down. We were watching the Georgia Tech-Notre Dame game. We ordered our drinks. I had Orange Italian Soda. It was good. Then we ordered our food. I got Spaghetti and Meatball. It looked good until I saw the watery sauce. Like actual water in the sauce! And then I tasted the plain spaghetti. It was not good. But, the meatball was good. I was thinking, “This is supposed to be Italian. They call themselves an Italian place – but they mess up Spaghetti and Meatball! A classic!" Also, we saw a party trying to get set up in the room next to us....
...The bathroom was pretty clean. It smelled good, too. Good bathroom. Bad food.
Bathroom: 4.5 out of 5 Stars. Food: 1.5 out of 5 Stars.
Paul: This review is going to be short because Sam basically said it all. But, it was dad’s idea – not mine! Anyway, it was pretty much my fault for ordering chicken tenders at a so-called “Italian” restaurant. I could tell when they brought them out that they were frozen…even before I ate them. The French fries tasted like nothing and they were very soggy. Even my parents’ meals were terrible. They even screwed up my dad’s Caesar salad. How does that happen!? The only two things good about this place were the Italian soda (I got vanilla) and the bathrooms.
So, that’s probably why you should NOT go to Johnny Carino’s. If you are near the airport, you are better off going to Longhorn or someplace like that, since they are all in the same strip mall.
