Road trip breakfast

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.

We would have been pleased to write a positive review of this restaurant, but were very abruptly told to leave. We were traveling across country for a nursing position in Seattle with our 4 pound chihuahua in 90+ degree weather when we stopped here. Our dog was in a completely enclosed carrier and does not bark or whine. The lady,... More

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.
