I like to try new places from time to time, we went there last night to try someplace new before heading to Hollywood Casino.

I had called ahead for seating, but we still ended up having to wait 15 more min.

We sat down and placed our drink order, were served bread (with nothing to cut it with) and had to wait 20min for the drink from the bar. When you order a alcoholic drink they should bring a water to drink while you wait. The drink arrives and its so tart you cannot even drink it, just horrible mixing skills at the bar. We wait about 30min more and finally get our salads which has about .01oz of ranch on them, but they had good flavor. The food arrives almost an hour and ten min after sitting and my steak was horrible, just fatty and over seasoned (tuscan ribeye), her fet alfredo was very very light on the sauce and tasted like it came from a burnt pan. I spoke with the mgr and left a small tip for the waitress.

Just a suggestion, try someplace else at The Legends.

.1 out of 5 stars

I don't always go to the Legends, but when I do, I dine at Yard House.

I live 5 mins away from the legends and I've eaten many times at Carinos. Our last time was similar to your experience, I wonder if they have new management or just a bunch of new staff? My wife and I have always been pretty pleased with Carinos other than our last trip.

Sorry to hear about your misfortune at the Legneds. :(

I don't always go to the Legends, but when I do, I dine at Yard House.This, for sure. The Yard House is awesome. Even if I don't drink a beer, the food has always been excellent the few times I've been. Hell, even the manager isn't that bad of a dude. :mrgreen:

There's a reason the Johnny Carinos went out of business in Olathe. They hire a crappy staff and have very mediocre food. It happens.

Back when I worked at procharger we would go to the one in Olathe. We got to know the lunch staff pretty well and always had a good experience but that was six years ago.

I've been to Carino's many times at the Legends, once in Wichita, and here in OKC and never once had a bad experience. I've always enjoyed their food, had good service, and always got my food in a timely manner. Some may still not like their food, but I would at least say give them another chance sometime.

yard house is the only reason we venture to the legends.

I can't believe they're still in business.
We went there when they first opened (7 years ago, I think).
The food was bland as hell.
The service was horrible.
Our waitress couldn't answer a single question about wine.
She took it one step further by ranting, "I don't know why they make us learn about wine. Pretty pointless, if you ask me."

Never been back...and I usually give restaurants a second chance.

Not this time. :nonod:

I've been there a couple times, not terribly impressed. Go to Yard House, and never look back.

Yardhouse is good.

I was going to eat at Final Cut at the Casino, but it has very little to offer vegetarians lol

I've been to Carino's once when they first opened. I had a good experience but that was a long time ago.

Went to Yard House yesterday for Father's day. I must say that I am impressed overall. Thanks for the recommendation to an out-of-towner.

If you ever make it back ask for JW as it is always nice to meet a member of the board.
