This place is fantastic for breakfast. Try one of their biscuits with gravy. One biscuit is HUGE! I have been here many times. Don't order a steak dinner. The dinner steaks are poor quality and cooked on a flat griddle, not on a grill. I have had one bad experience with steaks at dinner. They did not charge for the... More

We had breakfast at the Rusty Tractor twice during our stay at the Travel Inn RV park in Elma. We were attracted by the rusty farm machinery that surrounds the parking lot. The menu includes yak which was a surprise. My husband ordered the yak and eggs breakfast. He thoroughly enjoyed his meal and liked this healthier alternative to his... More

So upset and disappointed. Picked up my twins from Bible Camp and their Grandfather bragged the whole way home about stopping at the Rusty Tractor for the Best YAK Burger...we were starving and so excited. They were busy, many bikers, not a problem. We waited for 15 minutes with just one couple in front of us before the waitress asked... More

The menu(s) are large with so many options. We had breakfast. I had the 8 ounce Chicken Fried Steak with toast, hash browns, and two eggs. I am a big eater and I could not finish. The wife ordered a half portion or biscuits and gravy, which came with hash browns and coffee and she did not come close to... More

Loved the rustic feeling to the place, and the down home cooking was Excellent. The service was excellent, and so was the Yak burger dip that I got there. Highly recommended !!

The Rusty Tractor has good food and friendly, fast service. I had the clam chowder, a salad and a big roll called a cow pie. It was decorated with misc. old farm items and toys on the wall.

The slowest place I have ever eaten. The food was greasy, Our waitress was rude and slow! I will never eat here again. The only thing good was the soda, waist of money.

The worst food I've had in six weeks on the road. Ordered fried chicken...it came and was cold inside, about the same temp as the beer I ordered, which was fine being cold. Waitress apologized and 15 minutes later, received different chicken pieces that were so bad they were inedible. Apologies offered by waitress, who was nice, but no remedy.... More

After a long wait, we finally ordered. The waitress encouraged us to get the rattle snake eggs. She said they were a popular item on the menu and one of her son's personal favorites. We took her advice and were served an envelope on top of a piece of lettuce with a side of ranch. We opened the package to... More
