Was ok. Waitress did not write down no mustard just mayo. Got mustard and no mayo. Onion rings over done. Was ok to eat as I was tired and hungry and did not want to go to steak house.

Service was great, food came out fairly quick and was pretty good. We had hamburgers, tater tots, and salad. I'd eat there again.

A popular place for locals, with a buffet that made it like "family style eatin." The meat & veggies were good, & the price reasonable. They were so busy that it would have been a challenge to "order from the menu." The servers were cordial, & somewhat helpful. As travelers, we found it an easy access from the interstate.

A great, local, family restaurant. We ate breakfast, and had a VERY good value in our meal. Very friendly staff, this was a delightful start to our day.

The food and service was so great, we made sure we were going to be near this restaurant for breakfast on the road trip back home. Quick and friendly service, quality ingredients, and awesome flavors.

The food at Mitchell’s is like the service: not particularly good but not especially bad. We had fried onions and liver, chicken fried steak and a hamburger--all somewhat overcooked. Don't come here if you are looking for heart-healthy dishes! Also, portions apparently tend to reflect the preferences of the local laborers, where quantity clearly counts for more than quality. There... More

Our Best Western Inn staff member, David recommended the little country family restaurant. It was located right across the street from our motel. David also recommended their hamburgers or their chicken fried steak. We ordered the senior dinner of chicken fried steak. It was just delicious. Really tender steak with delicious mashed potatoes and gravy, roll and butter. It also... More

Maybe it was the lack of wait-staff when I was there that made service pretty slow. After reading the good reviews, I was disappointed in this restaurant. Along with the slow service, my chicken-fried steak was burnt on the bottom and tough. There was also a fly problem and I got tired of waving them off the table. I didn't... More

Mitchell's is a real find along Route 66. The service is friendly and very "hometown." On Sunday when we visited for lunch they had a large buffet, sizable salad bar and you can also order off the menu. The cheeseburgers were delicious - but we should have split one. We would go back.

Hubby and I stopped in one night in Shamrock and decided to have dinner here. Don't let the sign or establishment fool you, but the place is clean, food is downright homestyle cooked and delicious too. I had the Philly Steak Sandwich & Tater Tots while hubby had the French Dip (Roast Beef) Sandwich and home fries, very reasonably priced,... More
