Adams Street Bed & Breakfast

726 N Adams St
Carroll, 51401
Reviews:
Great little B&B, the room wasn't as pristine clean as I'd like, but the bed was huge, comfortable and the fireplace outstanding. The breakfast on Saturday morning was one of the best I've had in a B&B. I will return to Adams Street in the future.

Kmart Little Caesars Pizza Station

715 W US Highway 30
Carroll, 51401
Reviews:
I know I work for Wal-Mart, but by default, I have visited this Kmart (old and new store in Carroll) all my life, and it's the best Kmart I've ever been to! That said, I know Little Caesar's is another term for "cheap pizza". Now I've been to upscale pizza restaurants and children-target marketed pizza restaurants like Cici's Pizza (which I love), but in Carroll, it's pizza city, with Godfather's, Pizza Hut, TWO Casey's Carry-Out Pizza locations, Sam & Louie's NY Style Pizza, Pizza Ranch (I'm not kidding, Pizza Ranch and Sam & Louie's are in the same strip plaza, separated by a Hibbett's Sports), and of course, my favorite, Little Caesar's. This Little Caesar's is housed inside the Kmart, immediately to the right of the entrance. It is impressive, that I've seen many other Kmart stores lose their snack bars or Little Caesar's over the years, but this store has managed to keep hold of theirs since they moved to the new store in 1992. The food is great, as I like to get a large sausage, extra cheese and extra mushroom pizza...delicious! They have other items too, such as breakfast items and desserts, since it doubles as a K Cafe, but the main focus is Little Caesar's. To be honest, I don't think I've ever had a bad experience in the 20 years I've been coming here (yes, I was eight years old when Kmart moved to its new location, but I remember the rectangle-style pizzas, and wish they still made them!). I understand that Kmart has earned a shady reputation over the years, but I think that this Kmart is an exception. This store has always been clean, busy (not Wal-Mart busy, but busier than most Kmarts), and there for us if something was out at Wal-Mart. It's been almost five years, and usually when a Wal-Mart goes Supercenter, Kmart usually peaces out, but not Carroll's, and I'm greatful for that. My point is, Little Caesar's probably wouldn't ever build a freestanding location in Carroll, so I'm glad it exists inside Kmart!

Queen Beans Coffee House

522 N Clark St

Reviews:
Wow! In town from Southern California and was so disappointed there was no Starbucks... who needs it! Queen Beans was the best coffee I have ever had! Cool place, great people, service was excellent! I definitely recommend the english muffin sandwich with sausage and I had an iced Mocha that was superb!
I enjoyed studying at this little shop in Carroll. The coffee was pretty good and the food was better than most coffee shops I've tried in the past. It would be my first choice in Carroll for sure!
Very cute local coffee house & eatery. Fun ambience. I ordered Belgium Waffles with strawberries and whipped cream. They were good, but not great. I think their prices are a bit high for the quality. But I still like supporting a local small biz. I'd go back, but order something else.

Sam’s Sodas & Sandwiches

Reviews:
Friendly atmosphere and great food. Had a chocolate shake with my grilled club and both were delicious. Highly recommended.
We were in Carroll to visit my wifes family and we needed a place to eat. We didnt have much to choose from so decided to give Sam's a try. When we walked in the place had a small town nostalgic feel to it and the waitress was very friendly. We looked the menu over and everything was well priced with a good selection. I got the fried pork sandwich, the kids got a french dip and club. Everything looked pretty good. My only downfall was that everything lacked some sort of flavor. Fries, onion rings, sandwiches, everthing was bland. We ended up having to doctor them up with the sauces and condiments that we received. If in the area I suggest that you stop by and give it a try for yourself, I don't think you will be disappointed.
Simply delicious. Clean. Down to earth good food. Get the #2 Samburger with cheese! Classic !!!!

Despite other reviews, I was pleasantly surprised here. Took a guest here for lunch today. The service and food were both great! I would definitely return!
I had good bar food here. Service was great, people were friendly. I think some like to find fault. Remember folks, first and foremost IT'S A BAR!
Mediore food. Beer was flat. Our pitcher was dirty on the bottom inside. Definitely don't go in there if you want to watch any game but an Iowa team. Owner refused to change even one TV for us. Ended up having to use our phone to watch the game we wanted.

Reviews:
Burritos, Soppapillas, Mexican food was great! Never eaten at a taco johns before. The wings- no matter the flavor you get- is horrible!! Never ever get those again! Tried it twice before actually judging. Grilled beef or chiken burrito is the best, loved the food, my kids did too. Beans were real, not refried or reconstited from a can.

Charlie’s

Carrollton Inn,1730 N US Hwy 71
Carroll, 51401
Reviews:
Just to be clear, this is a hotel bar/restaurant. There are several big screen TV's on the walls with neon beer signs in between and Christmas lights around the top of the bar. And not that there is anything wrong with that, but if you're looking for a place to take mom on Mother's day, as I was, just know that this is a dark space with no windows. That said, the food was pretty good.
It's a small town but it's a really nice restaurant. The foods pretty good. It reminds you of a mix of bar food and burgers. I tried the hot wing challenge. The sauce is mad with a ghost pepper. Let's just say it didn't end well. Your times and you have to sign a waiver. All the burgers are pretty good on the menu. The 3 star is for the limited seating, the very bad parking, and the long wait times. The parking is near impossible. The wait is always over 1hr. I almost always have to go to some other restaurant when I'm in town due to the long waits and the awkward open hours.
Pleasantly surprised. We were in for a two day basketball tournament and stayed at the Carroll Inn. We had a large party of 10 and decided to not leave our hotel so we had dinner at Charlie's. Excellent food, drinks, and service. Everyone in our party loved it. Including our kids that got to color their own cookie. Highly recommended.
