We give up. We tried this restaurant last year and found it adequate. We like it because it has easy access and parking for a truck and travel trailer. We went this year and found it understaffed and very disappointing food. There was one waitress who did her very best to handle the five tables occupied while we were there.... More

Good place to have breakfast! You better bring your appetite with you because the servings are large. Nice friendly staff too!! We enjoyed ourselves there.

After the World of Outlaws event got rained out, we, like a lot of others, decided to grab dinner at this place. Busy, busy, busy' we had to wait a bit, but Katie Rose made us feel right at home. We had a lot of laughs with her and when the food arrived, it was great! We will be whew... More

We have been coming here for several years and haven't had a bad meal yet. Large portions, and plan to share, or bring half of it home. We enjoy seeing the antiques scattered around this small but cozy restaurant both inside and outside. Don't forget to try those HUGE bisquits.

Daughter and I went on a busy Friday morning. Great service right away. Huge breakfast menu and good specials. She did French toast and patty sausage, I had a Mexican scramble. Very good food and great portions. Definitely worth it.

Excellent staff and servers. They have great food and great attitudes to match. Great value for what you get, I don't think anything on the menu would be a disappointment. Nice size portions. A great Mom & Pop style restaurant with family in mind. If you want a break from the "Chain" Restaurants, this is it.

I am not a big fan of diner food, but I have to admit that I was impressed! Good selection of food (and adult beverages, too)! They also have pull tabs so you can try out your luck with a few spare $$. Service was a bit slow, but they were fairly busy.

The Rusty Tractor has been one of our favorites for years. The food is always good, friendly staff and a trip in the past with their decor. We seem to win at the pool tabs here as well. I always start digging into the food, next time I'll try to remember to take a picture. We've ate breakfast, lunch and... More

I know that this restaurant serves Yak but I did not try it today. I had ordered a burger that was really good. The deserts are great too and the blueberry cobbler was quite nice. I wanted to give a shout out to the waistresses who were friendly and attentive. We found this place by luck after being lost in... More
