Russell's is a local favorite. Excellent food at a good price. Breakfast all day. Known for their pies and cinnamon rolls. Looks a little like an old style truck stop restaurant so if you looking for something more modern, this may not be for you. If you are looking for an alternative to the chain... read more

If you like food with taste or interest, Don't Go there! The food was plentiful, but incredibly bland. The "Chop salad" was about a head of iceberg lettuce, some sliced up deli turkey & ham. I could have had better from the salad bar at the grocery store. :( Others in my party had the Fried Chicken and raved about... More

Went here on a Friday night. It was not busy. The burgers are tasty and good sized. My wife had a BLT. She said it was bery good. The watress was especially friendly. Located right of Highway 135 it is easy to get to. The prices are reasonable.

This was my second time here. In fact, we planned our route so we could be at Russell's for their Chicken Fried Steak. We were not disappointed. It's not fancy but homey and clean and the portions are big, food is hot and very good. I would go back a third time if traveling through Salina again.

Second time we've eaten here. Food is still excellent. They don't have the fanciest decor but the waitstaff is quick, friendly and helpful and the restaurant was very clean. Prices are reasonable. This visit I chose the Philly cheese steak and fries. They served it on a big dinner plate,with lettuce, tomatoes, onions and pickles on the side, the sandwich... More

Worth the wait on a Sunday morning if you are hungry. They are very busy and when your food arrives you can see that it is an excellent value. While the food and atmosphere are typical the portions are awesome. You will go away satisfied it hit the spot for us

I stopped with my family at Russell's for breakfast on our way through Kansas. It was way better than a run through the drive through! Great food, huge portions and reasonable prices.

Food was good. Portions were a lot even on kids meals. Staff could be alittle more friendly. Our waiter only took half our drink order and walked away. Took 3 times to get all nine of us our drinks. But got food order right. Would go back there again.
