Good home style food

There were 9 of us, the portions were large and delicious. We came for breakfast, but I think they serve everything all day long... The waitress kept up with us just fine. When we are back in Salina we will be going again I'm sure.

Hadn't dined here in years. Used to eat here on a regular basis in the 70's and early 80's.Back then it was one of the best places to eat in the area, always busy. After Mr. Russell died the restaurant went downhill to the point where it was awful. We quit going because of being served terrible food and lousy... More

We were out for a weekly group gathering, and this was the first time I'd been to this long-time Salina restaurant. It was pretty much home-cooking, and the meals were huge- too large, in fact for most of those in our group. The food was adequate, although my wife's salad was pretty dry and hadn't seen refrigeration for some time.... More

Went after the bars and needed food. Talk about good food. The omelets are great. You could tell that this is the place the bar staff goes after working at the bar. Great place

We were in Salina over the weekend for a wedding and decided to have breakfast as a family the day we were scheduled to drive back home. At first I was not impressed by the decor & the place lacked curb appeal. But as were we being seated I glanced over a table of people who already had their dishes... More

Even the hash browns (Bobs) came stuffed. I left stuffed!. All of the notes about the building and the staff accurate. I felt prices were reasonable. Enjoyed what will probably be my one meal of the day. Next time will split one order between two or three people! Place including restrooms was clean.

Travelling thru the area last week, I spent the night in Salina. Had dinner at Russell's and was impressed. Good home cooking and plenty of it. Had the roast beef and the meat was delicious.

Pork tenderloin sandwich was excellent and we also liked the fried chicken special too- portions are very generous- consider splitting the plate or take some home-- the waitress was friendly and efficient - handy location right near the Interstate too

Russell's has been around for years. We used to meet my parents there as we traveled from both ends of the state to get together. Not much has changed and the food thankfully is still as delicious as ever. If you like good basic home-cooked food this is your spot. We went for breakfast this visit (but really for the... More

Classic diner. Doesnt look fancy from the outside at all (or inside either) but what a great breakfast and for a good price. I had eggs that were cooked like I asked them and link sausage. It showed up with 4 huge link sausage. Hash browns were not spared by any means. Would make a point to go back if... More
