This place has a smashing ambiance, the service was second to none and everyone was very friendly in the country way. Everywhere there is a cowboy motif with John Wayne being a featured display.

Ate lunch here on way to BC. We were looking for something local when ran across the Rusty Wagon. Well it's not Pacific NW looking nor NW food--looks to belong in Western Plains or Colorado ranch country. Service was fast and friendly. Food was tasty---large burgers are moist and tasty as was the fried chicken. Convenient and plenty of parking.

I wouldn't give this restaurant "rave" reviews. It works for a plain meal but nothing special. Open breakfast, lunch and dinner, including Sunday.

Call ahead to reserve for a lunch or dinner meeting. Food is down home, tasty and make sure you arrive hungry. Portions are too large for a healthy diet. Split the meal with a spouse/friend or plan to take 1/2 home.

Great traditional breakfasts, exceptional corned beef hash and huge portions. The kind of restaurant that enables all us old fat country boys!

I try to have a meal at this rustic, family owned and friendly restaurant whenever I am in the Lynden area. The food is always good and plenty. I especially enjoy the chicken fried steak, prime rib, and burgers and then any of the dessert offerings. The apple and seasonal pies (alamode or not) are delicious.

Went with a couple of friends for w lunch meeting. There were not many patrons and yet the service was very poor. Had to ask to be served hot beverages while waiting for one of our party and then repeatedly for milk for tea. Food was average. Salad bar was uninspiring but fresh. The place was clean though and the... More

We have been there a few times and have never been disappointed. One of a very few places that still has a salad bar and this one always seems fresh. The staff is great the food tasty and the portions are filling all for a pretty reasonable price.
