Always reliably good. The wife had the delicious summer salad with lots of fruit and lightly blackened chicken. The dressing is lightly citrus. Wonderful! I had a very tasty Philly cheese steak with onion rings. It did have what I think were red onions. I'll...ask about sweet onions next time. Fantastic meal and great service.More

We arrived there about 20 minutes before closing and you never would have known that by the gracious way that the serving staff treated us. This was our first time here and it was truly delicious. My daughter had the Greek omelette and I had...the one with the ground beef . Both were excellent as were the biscuits that came with them .When we got the check we were so surprised at how reasonable it was for such a great meal.More

I think my first review of the Rusty Bike as back in 2014. I have been many times since and do my best to drop in when I can. I live approx. 80 away. Love, love, love breakfast here, and we always have the Multi-Grain...pancakes with double blueberries! The Three Wheeler is what it is called on the menu and also comes with meat of your choice and two eggs. Great food, great service, great atmosphere....winner all the way around. I don't hand out Excellent reviews very often, but The Rusty Bike is an excellent stop! Breakfast and lunch only, 7-3 daily. Very busy so get in line and wait, it is worth it!More

We went to eat here at lunch and both had breakfast dishes. I had the greek omelet and it was fantastic! Grits were great too....definitely not quick grits. Fun atmosphere, friendly staff, fast service will eat here again.

We were thrilled to have lunch here in October en route to the NC mountains! Service was friendly and efficient. Food was very tasty! The Philly cheese steak was a favorite!

It's been awhile since we ate here and I am so glad it has not changed. I had the #11 FMC breakfast: Biscuit cut in half, topped with 2 sausage patties, stacked with 2 eggs over medium, then covered in sausage gravy, with hash browns...on the side. It just doesn't get any better and no need for lunch today. The only problem is you might have to wait 10 or 15 minutes but it will be worth it.More

Numerous positive TA reviews brought my husband and me to the Rusty Bike Cafe during our recent Clayton getaway. Friendly fast service, reasonable prices, and melt in your mouth biscuits had us dining here twice during our one week stay. Hash browns, sausage gravy, fluffy...blueberry pancakes, and poached eggs were delicious additions to our breakfast lunch. Huge portions ensured we had plenty to eat before hiking :) When visiting Clayton, make sure to dine at RBC (and order the biscuits!!!). You will not be disappointed!More

We are open 7 days a week, 7-3. We are closed thanksgiving and Christmas. That Wednesday before will be a busy day. But the waits are generally short unless you have a large group.
