Certainly not a place to get a healthy breakfast. In fact I think of you tried to order low fat yogurt and granola you might be taken out the back and shot !!. What they do serve they do very well. The omelet and hash browns I had was delicious and enough to feed a family of 4. Coffee was... More

We have been stopping at Russell's for many years and always enjoy the food and relaxing atmosphere. The food is homemade and the menu has lots of choices.

We were seated by a not so friendly guy. Waitress took our drink order...I did not like the tea but that's probably just me. Switched to Diet Pepsi...excellent. Took forever for our waitress to take our order, she was busy cashing people out, did apologize for the wait. The prices are a little higher than I would have expected. The... More

We hadn't been here in years but thought we should give it a try for old times sake. The menu still had a great number of choices and the food we received tasted great and the serving sizes were very good. For a place that's been around for the better part of 40 years they are still serving up great... More

Good hot food, American truck stop food. Roast beef is excellent. Usual fare for a truck stop, but cleaner than a lot of the chain restaurants

Used to be a pretty busy place but things have slowed down over the last 20 years for some reason but the food has always been great. One of the best chicken fried steaks in the area. Old fashioned salad bar where you can still get what you want.
