We have stopped here whenever we are in the area. We were there about four days ago and ordered the catfish sandwich. It was one of the best fish we have had in a long time. The place is not fancy but food has always great and we will be stopping again when we go home.

We stop at Russell's when we want a good breakfast. They serve breakfast anytime. Their pies are great if one has room after eating a meal. Last year we are here on Thanksgiving day. They had all of the traditional Turkey Day choices for a reasonable choice. Best of all - no dishes!

We always make sure to eat breakfast at Russell's when we are passing through Salina. Friendly country service. Keep the coffee cups full. Portions are huge. They always have something really interesting for a special like prime rib and eggs, or a Philly cheese steak omelet. Don't miss it if you are there.

Pay attention to the wide range of ratings – the lower ones correctly warn that this isn’t your best choice. As reviewers note, the restaurant is dated, the portions are large, the prices are reasonable, the salad bar is a bit meager but OK, and the service is good. I didn’t try the pies, but they looked like they were... More

Food is pretty good. Plates are usually stuffed and some good home cooked stuff. Only thing is place is really dated. Nothing top notch but if you desire some home cookin this might be your ticket.

Growing up we would go to Russell's a lot. They had great homemade pie and the food was good. However, the food, prices and cleanliness of the restaurant have gone downhill. The food does not taste fresh anymore. The prices are SUPER high. Our family of four went and our bill was over $60. That's $60 for truck stop food!!... More

The food was crummy and the prices high, don't bother going to this restaurant. The tables weren't even wiped off very well.

Ate breakfast here on our way out of town, had a omelet and hash browns, it was way more than I could eat and very tasty. A little pricey ($28 for two) but still kept us going all day on the road.
