What is this, a drive in with great food and wonderful service in 2012? Highly recommend.
This is our traditional stop after caving in southern MN, and never disappoints! There's nothing like eating a tasty burger in the car while covered in mud :). I always look forward to going back.
This place is absolutely awesome! You won't be disappointed no matter what you order.

Passing through Spring Valley as part of a long bike/road trip, my daughter and I pulled into the "downtown" of this small town and dropped into Elaine's for lunch. What a great move. Looking like a 50s diner, we sat at the counter while a table of six men - locals, all farmers, discussed politics, planting and hydrology - and ordered the hamburger (from local grass fed cows) and onion rings. The rings were freshly battered and made (by Elaine, who was back in the kitchen); they were excellent. The burgers were thick, juicy, flavorful and served with tomato and lettuce. With burger and rings coming in at around $5, you'll have a tough time putting as much satisfaction in front of you. If you are passing south of Rochester, MN on I-90, Elaine's is worth the detour.
Two stars for friendly, hot and quick. No stars for tenderloin and made-from-frozen onion rings that tasted like fish. Both sandwiches had a large dollop of mayonnaise, which surprised us, but it does scrape off easily. It was nice to be able to choose a smaller burger, and to actually get a whole slice of onion. Enjoyed the conversations from the regulars. We arrived too late for any specials, so I cannot evaluate them. Will we be back? I don't think so, unless all I need is a burger.
This is classic American small town diner. The $6 "dinner special" served at lunch included a a chunk of roast beef, real mashed potatoes, green beans, coleslaw and coffee. Served within five minutes with a slice of white bread. We were out the door within 25 minutes -- serviceable food during a long road trip, with wild animal prints on the walls and farmers chatting about the weather. Beats out the DQ.
