If you are unlucky enough to be in Elko on a Sunday when almost every restaurant is closed, and decide to get a pizza, I do not recommend the Blind Onion. Our experience: We ordered the pizza from a young woman who looked like she had just lost her best friend. If she had smiled her face would have cracked.... More

Im giving this a 3 because the pizza is not the best I have ever eaten. Its a bit doughy for me. Its not a huge restaurant and can get very packed on the weekends because there is a bowling alley attached to it. They host a ton of birthday parties so its very family oriented but if you are... More

A little to "yuppie" for my taste but everyone in my group LOVED it! Friendly staff and good service. Located in downtown and withiin walking distance from our hotel.

Found this place while walking across the country on The Great American Walkabout. They had undergone some renovation and were really working to make this the new hip spot in town, and I think they really succeeded. They have a great pizza restaurant, a hip and stylish bar, and even a bowling alley. Because each room is separate but attached,... More

We had pizza that evening and it was good. It is somewhat self serve and the staff wasn't very engaging, had to ask a lot of questions, being brand new in town...like how it all works. Definitely see it being a great place if you want to come hang out, eat some dinner, have a few beers, play darts, bowling,... More

Visited 12/21/2012. Great pizza! We decided on this place because of the reviews. We were very pleased to find the reviews true. Filled with locals, the blind onion has excellent pizza- we got the vegetarian pizza and added chorizo (so good we are returning for more). We almost got pizzas other people were eating, they looked so good! The large... More

Heavy duty pizza! 2 slices of a medium are more than enough to fill an adult appetite! Located in the same building as the bowling alley, don't go in expecting a lot of ambience. Cute caricatures of blind onions in various professions adorn the walls. Crust and breadsticks taste like homemade bread. Friday nights are half off. My favorite is... More

Not the best pizza, unless you like proportionally way more doughy crust to pizza ingrediants. And the crust was not that good. The salads were a good size and yummy though. Don't get the chicken wings, if you are a chicken wing fan you will be disappointed.

Great Pizza and the prices are not bad. The pizza had great flavors and a very unique sauce. The salads are also very large and fresh and crisp.
