We have traveled up & down I-5 many times but this is our first visit to the Salem Elmer's. Pretty much like most of them, very good for any meal. As seasoned travelers we do really like to stop at a Elmer's for a meal if timing is right. This store was also like most very clean & courteous servers... More

They were not busy, our order took forever, we had to ask for coffee refills, both waitresses walked past us and ignored us as if we had the plague. For the price of our sandwich, we should gave had a small salad, but because it comes with "endless fries" ( again of which a member of my patty had to... More

Now this is a good restaurant. The food was excellent. I ate here twice: lunch was a humongous sandwich with what appeared to be half a chicken and sixteen avocados. Breakfast was french toast with half a slab of bacon that was terrific. I'll go back. Oh, the prices were VERY reasonable.

Typical diner with better than average food and very good , efficient service. Bathrooms were not as clean as they should've been, but it was a busy Saturday morning so I gave them a pass on that.

We found ourselves passing through Salem again and remembered how much we enjoyed Elmer's when we stopped two years ago. We are happy to report both the food and the service were still great. Obvious they have a significant local following (which is always a good thing!) and we were lucky enough to get in just before the lunch crowd.... More

This was a default choice because our preferred places were closed for Monday lunch. But I have to admit, though this is comfort food and formica, the food was really tasty and our waitress was a pro. So I have no regrets.
