I got hooked on Carino's when one opened on I 40 west in Amarillo. I am happy to report that the McAllen version is as good as my original. Even, consistent good food with great size helpings. I usually get 2 appetizers the "fire sticks" and the Italian nachos. Both are great, tasty and filling. Occasionally I get a full entree and have covered just about the whole menu. Meatballs with simple pasta is a favorite but I also love the Chicken Parm. The sauce is consistent, not too acrid, with a touch of sweetness that resembles the home made "gravy" by friends in south Philly. I also like the Alfredo sauce, but it is not my favorite. You want a filling, great priced lunch? Hit Carino's and get a couple of appetizers, you won't be disappointed.
