Food was okay. Hash browns were so-so, Philly steak sandwich was wonderful. The atmosphere was pleasant, and the staff were friendly and prompt. Not too expensive.Nothing negative about the experience, it was... Good?

L❤VE this place. Bustling little gem. Old fashioned, homemade goodness served with a smile. Our meals were hot, fresh and just like grandma made. Dessert was an indulgence that was SO worth the calories.I highly recommend that everyone give Russell's a try. You'll be glad you did!

I absolutely love this place. I've been stopping here for the last 10 years now. It's a nice clean simple family restaurant that serves up super yummy comfort food. The fried chicken is all hand done with the lightest, crispiest breading you can get, then pressure fried !!!!Their breads, and pies are all made in house, and are stellar. I try and stop every time I pass by, but unfortunately time doesn't always cooperate.Go get ya some !!!?????

I award my stars given the expectations of the genre of restaurant, they are not Michelin stars for how haughty the cuisine is. Russell's serves, good, plain, down home every day diner food, and they do it really well, with absolutely excellent service. This was one of the few restaurants in the country that was actually able to keep up with my husband's coffee demands, and actually offered me a refill on my iced tea. They were quick to get our order, quick to set down the plates, and the food was hot, wholesome, and delicious.I love senior portions, as our appetites just aren't what they used to be, and I do not need to be eating like a trucker off an all-day run.I got the liver and onions because I'm just that way. I enjoy a good one, and they did really well caramelizing the liver, and there were plenty of well-caramelized onions on top. The mashed potatoes were firm and rich with a good coating of brown gravy (there was a choice of brown or cream), and the salad bar had plenty of everything that should go on a salad and then some.My husband got the fried catfish, which was crisp, hot, and lightly battered. He really loved his baked potato.It's just plain, good food at really great prices.Parking: Excellent parking just outside the restaurant, easy access in and out to the street, freeway, and all the surrounding hotels.

The breakfast here is what you crave after a night out. Fried, greasy, goodness. Yet, it is still perfect for any situation. The pancakes are MASSIVE and the waffle was crispy and perfectly done. The diner itself hasnt changed in probably over 30 years and that's not a bad thing either. Service was amazing to boot despite the place being packed. I don't think I'll be going anywhere else for breakfast. Puts IHOP and Perkins to shame!

I like stopping at places that aren't part of a chain when on a trip, so Russell's was it. we got seated quickly, order taken quickly, and food was good. however, the lettuce on the salad bar was just iceberg and starting to fade and get rusty. otherwise, a sensible choice.

Excellent food. I had the beef barley soup. It was homemade. Best soup I ever had. I also husband gor chicken fried steak, hash brown and eggs. We were very impressed with the food, reasonably priced, cleanliness of the place. The waitress was very nice. We would definitely recommend the place to others. Wish they were located in my home down.Parking: Plenty of parking.

It's another gem in Columbus Nebraska. The food was amazing and the bar is there if you need a kick start on your day drinking. The staff was extremely nice and it's a local breakfast spot.

Very welcoming, the staff are all very friendly, the quality and quantity is beyond fabulous for the price. Family oriented, and handicap friendly. They support down syndrome. I highly recommend that if your in the Salina, KS area and looking for a great home cooked meal like your grandma's, that you go to Russell's, you won't regret it
