Not Clean, Bad Meats, Inconsistent, Untrained Chefs, Slow Service, Bad Attitudes:

Lack of Cleanliness is the first problem at this place where you can (unfortunately) see the kitchen -- check it out for yourself. You'll walk out.

Low Quality of Meats - everything is low-grade "Choice" or "Utility" grade beef, and the steaks are not a very well-marbled "Choice." Nothing is Prime, not even the "Prime" Rib, which is woefully unseasoned.

Inconsistency and Untrained Chefs: Casey's is clueless as to how to cook a steak properly. A rare steak is red and cold in the center, often with a thin dark-char on the outside if so ordered (most rare steak eaters do order that way: see "black and bleu" on any culinary site).

It's what I often call the rural scale -- restaurants with less urban clientele find that their patrons don't really know how to order a steak, and they compensate to all the send-backs by cooking one-half to one-full range over what's ordered. But Casey's takes this stupid practice to a new scald-rate: Everything is BLACK THROUGHOUT - and you'll be rudely insulted if you mention it to them -- they literally accused ME of tampering with the meat (they must think I brought a blowtorch!)

At Casey's A rare order always comes book-Medium or darker. Pink and warm center. Tough and chewy. It's as tough as shoe leather, and the cliche' fits.

Vegetables are viewed as something to be drowned in boiling water. Any kind of mixed veggie or broccoli arrives as limp as if it came from a can.

Slow service from an under-size kitchen -- even when they're NOT busy. Maybe you'll be served 20 minutes after others at your table.

Seafood here is practically non-existent, and what they do carry is never fresh, always frozen, and comes out stinking of fish odor.

Rudeness is a problem here. I recently received my New York Strip (not a cheap steak) in an extremely tough condition -- it was book-well-done, and so burned that it was 3/4 of an inch of pure carbon along the edges. This was in response to an order for "blood rare with a Pittsburgh Char". It should have been a well-marbled piece of meat, properly seasoned, then done on a super-hot flat grill for 30-75 seconds per side to char it, sometimes done with a butter -- then rest a minute or two, then served. This can also be done in an oven with slightly longer times if the temp is close to 800F. Either way, the meat gets barely cooked. That's not what I received.

It was a take-out order done late, and when I brought it back the next day to demonstrate the problem, along with some printed guides for the chefs, so that next time I ordered this way, they would know HOW to actually do it, I was given a bunch of excuses by an obnoxious bartender who seemed to be in a managerial role, or at least was determined to tell me that what happened wasn't something they did: "Oh, those things heat up after they leave here". I pointed out that this isn't so much the case if the item is properly done, then rests briefly first before going into Styrofoam. (Yes, the center does darken a bit after cooking, but not very much if something is book-rare with a thin char.)

I nicely pointed out that this is not what had occurred, and offered the steak for examination. I pointed out that, unless the Styrofoam carry-out tray had a BLOW TORCH inside it, there is no way that a third of the steak could have "self-cooked" so that it was CARBON THROUGHOUT.

When I pointed this out, nicely, the Casey's guy said "Well, this tells me nothing -- you could have done this to it yourself."

SERIOUSLY? I'm going to be accused of taking a piece of meat and burning the crap out of it, then returning it? For what reason? I didn't even care about a discount -- just for them to see the issue.

This is RUDE and INSULTING, and if that's the way you want to be treated, you can always go to Casey's.

Stuff that's OK: Baked and Mashed Potatoes, and their Fries are properly prepared and usually good.

Everything is old, dusty, dingy, and cheap... chairs rickety and tables all tippy... nothing uniform, and everything just ripped up, tacky, and looking not clean. You can (unfortunately) see the kitchen -- check it out for yourself.

Tried the place a year ago and the service was terible, food was ok, but for the price it should have been better. Moved to Oviedo 3 months ago and decided to try it again. Same problem. Burgers was ok, kids menu prices are high for what

The appetizers were awful, bad salsa tasted like tomatoe sauce with an onion from a food processor. Spinach artichoke was weird tasting. Got a burger (how can you mess this up) it was raw and tasteless. My friends salad the same no

The only food worth eating there is the burgers, unless you get a kids burger, then you are better off going next door to McDonalds. I went here with my family, I have 2 kids and what upset me the most was the prices for the kids meal. At

We have dined at Casey's for both lunch and dinner and have always enjoyed their excellent food, fast service, and friendly atmosphere. It has very simple decor, but you can enjoy watching sports on the tv's or sit outside. The menu is varied enough for everyone, and everything we have tried has been a hit.

What a Find !!!!
I have lived in the area for over a year and never tried the place until one day my husband suggested we give it a chance. That was two weeks ago and I have eaten there four times since. The service was fast and friendly. You are welcomed with a big smile and rolls you wish your mom made. (don't tell her I said that) Every meal is more than I can eat and priced perfectly for a good healthy lunch (or dinner). Speaking of eating healthy - try a salad... I'm sure you will be impressed. It's like you went to your fridge and made it yourself.. not just a bowl of greens with 1 tomoato on top. You get a grand salad for a great price with HOMEMADE dressing.
I'll be back again and again

My husband and I dine out several times a week. On Saturday evening 3/24/07, we visited Casey's Grill. We attempted to place our order with a foreign waitress having difficulty with the English language. When our two bottled beers turned up as drafts, we knew the ordering process was not understood. We carefully proceeded to order an appetizer, two salads and two entrees - a NY Strip Steak and a Prime Rib. When the waitress brought the appetizer and salads to the table at the same time, we asked her not to put the steak order on until we finished our appetizer. Within two minutes, our steaks arrived. We were eating our appetizer, still had our salads to eat, and we watched our pricy steaks getting cold. My husband asked to speak with a manager. After quite some time, a young gentleman wearing a dishwasher's apron approached us asking what we needed. We explained that all our food had arrived at the same time and our steaks were already cold. The defensive manager proceeded to tell us that he couldn't possibly keep an eye on the waitressess while he was working in the kitchen. He continued to tell us that he just makes sure that the food gets out of the kitchen, not when it gets on the table. We explained that we had asked the waitress not to bring the steaks out because we already had our appetizer and salads to eat. He went on to tell us that he did not bear any of the responsibility at all for all of the food being brought to the table at once. Nor did he consider the waitress responsible. After questionning the validity of this man being the actual restaurant manager, we chose not to continue debating with him and just asked for the check. NOTE: After the manager and waitress left our table, other patrons told us of their difficulties with the foreign waitress as well. These other patrons also witnessed, first hand, that telling the manager about it was useless. TOO BAD.

I have only been there for take out. It was very busy there, but the staff was very nice anyway. The food was so homey and great. I had the chicken pasta and was really good, seeing that this is not a "pasta" place, My friend got spinach dip both times, that is how good that is. I got a salad the second time and it was huge, but fantastic. I got the soup with it and they packed up the bread and everything.

Casey's is a great casual restaurant with an excellent variety. We go at least weekly and have tried everything on the menu. Salads are very good with everything being chopped small and easy to eat. Their filet ranks right up there with the pricey steak houses. Burgers are huge and tasty.

We really love this place. We always feel welcome and the food is excellent. I think we've tried most everything by now but the Buffalo chicken sandwich, hamburgers and wings are favorites. At lunch they also have the best tuna sandwich you'll find anywhere. If you have a salad, you might want to ask for the onions on the side (they're chopped). They have great soup, too. Casey's is definitely worth checking out!

Burgers and more...everything is great (and huge) at Caseys! Prepared fresh and to order. This is a small neighborhood restaurant with a tiny bar area. The environment, although sports themed and serving alcohol, is appropriate for a family and children. An outdoor patio that's excellent for larger parties. Very much a family-owned environment and local favorite!

On Sunday mornings, they have a reasonably priced excellent brunch buffet. Serving a variety of fruit, eggs, meats, various breads, fresh omelettes and pancakes, all with your choice of toppings, and naturally all the hash browns, grits and other side items. I'd also like to recommend a Mimosa to have with your brunch....they make a great one.
