My wife and I stopped here to see local color and found this a good place to watch the denizens of the Oath Keeper variety. The food was what the locals call "grub" was swimming in grease. It all came from packages, all tasting of...additives, but no food flavors. HORRID!More

Visiting sights of Elma. Saw the good reviews, so made this our lunch stop. Seated right away with menu. My husband uses a walker. Placed us where walker was not problematic. My husband's BLT & fries were to his liking as well as their great...homemade creamy clam chowder & green salad was to mine. We ate it all with no need to add anymore to our tummies today!More

As said: Rural and hometown dinning at its best. And a down to local farming history bent outside and on all the walls. A bit of history with unadorned vittles.

For $12 I expect tasty food and good size portions. This place had neither. Very plain hashbrowns, tasted straight out of frozen package. My eggs were over cooked and service was poor. The ham slice was very good but very small.

This place was recommended by the sales clerk at the local ACE hardware store. We had a short wait while they cleared and cleaned(covid cleaning) a table for us. The wait staff was busy serving the tables that were occupied but acknowledge us when we...stepped in the door. The menu was pretty large and I had the cold homemade meat loaf sandwich and it was huge and very good. Ended up taking half of it home. Did try the excellent soup and we split an order of loaded potato skins. Wife had a huge salad, part of which went home with us. Service was excellent. The young lady checked back a couple times and refilled our drinks. All in all a very good place to eat. Will probably go back for dinner, want to try the chicken fried steak, was the item the clerk at ACE recommend.More

It used to be a treat for us to eat here, but the prices keep rising and the quality of food keeps going down. My husband ordered a bowl of soup with his meal, and it was thicker than wallpaper paste, and tasted like what...wallpaper paste might taste like. We finally said something to the waitress, who brought him a bowl of a different kind of soup, but it wasn't edible either. My salad had a lot of brown leaves in it and I couldn't finish it. We just don't want to eat here any more.More

I don't like runny whites in my eggs. The eggs Benedict sounded good to me. Before I ordered the dish, I asked the waitresses if the cook would fix my eggs so when I cut into them my tummy wouldn't churn if the whites weren't...done. She replied, medium well? I said yes. Oh my goodness, the English muffins were good, a thick slice of ham on top with eggs cooked just right for me. The hollandaise sauce wasn't over spicy or to much mustard. It came with hash browns also. Waitress was attentive to the 6 of us. One of our friends ordered one pancake. It was the size of the dinner plate. None of us left hungry that's for sure.More

My husband and I have stopped twice now while traveling to Olympia and have enjoyed our lunches both times. This is a cozy Mom and Pop with plain old-fashioned goodness! We haven’t been disappointed with the food or our servers. Fair prices for good food....Can’t complain!More

Spotted this restaurant upon pulling into town. Nice little family restaurant with some tasty grub. Ordered the "Cowpie Biscuit and Gravy". Holy Crap! It was huge and yummy. I'd for sure eat here again.

My husband and I have stopped by Rusty Tractor several times when we are in the area. They have a great variety of food choices, and some unusual ones you don't see at the majority of restaurants. Serve breakfast all day, if you decide that's...what you want. The restaurant has friendly staff and an interesting decor that will keep you entertained while you wait for food. They can be very busy and there might be some wait time, but I prefer to wait as opposed to eating at other restaurants in the area. We've eaten breakfast as well as lunch when we've gone through.More
