This place is great. The food is really good and you get a large portion for a reasonable price. The family is really friendly and they do a good job of making you feel like a valued customer. There's a dining room area, but it's pretty small and uninviting, so your best bet would be ordering to go.
Carmine's is a great place to eat. I was working in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and found out about this restaurant from a local. Haven't been there since 2009 so don't know anything about it now (2014). But it was great then!
food is good. feed a family of five under $20.00
