This place had a fairly high score so we thought we'd give it a try. Huge disappointment. Our chowder came out in a lump. It looked like a scoop of mac & cheese. You could tell it was cold by looking at it. Warm soup is flat all the way across. Fries were cold also. Menu said my Thai wrap... More

Liked the idea of the restaurant at the same location of hotel. We received our food one hour after ordering. Had to remind our waiter that he was missing part of our order. Someone in our party returned their soup because it was cold and had a film on top from sitting for so long.

Found this is my AAA Book so decided to give it a try. I was seated close to the front near the grill, but in a matter of minutes the smoke from the Casino was bothering my eyes. Staff let me move to the far end of the restaurant and it was fine. Restaurant has an extensive menu with daily... More

JR's was recommended by our desk clerk, so we gave it a try. Roasted corn chowder was delicious, as were mozzarella stickssty. Husband's steak sandwich, was generous and flavorful - with a layer of gristle the length of the steak that he literally could not bite through! Took a knife to cut & eat it. The potato salad was just... More

Food was great! Would definitely eat there again and recommend to others. Waitress "Daisy" was very friendly and helpful.

My husband and I decided to try this restaurant (located within the America's Best Value Inn on Idaho Street) because we had heard good things about it. We had a shared appetizer and entree's. My husband had the Buffalo Burger and he was quite happy with his meal. I had the Cajun Chicken Alfredo (overpriced and lacking any semblance of... More

A late night meal after a 16 hour day ended with being on Ignore for nearly 30 minutes. There was only 6 people in the restaurant and 10 wait staffers, an off duty waitress actually helped more than the one that was assigned my table. The burger was just OK not great or even good, just OK. Plan on spending... More

My friend and I, while driving to California, stayed overnight in Elko. From TripAdvisor, we thought that we would check out Toki Ona, which is one of the top-rated restaurants. We drove to it, but the outside looked very unappealing, so we instead drove to and ate at JR's. The service was good. It was clear that this place does... More

The burgers were geat. The fries were large, which is rare today. They were very busy but the service was still great. Prices were also very reasonable. I also liked the family atnosphere. The booths were comfortable too.

There is so much wrong with this restaurant I don't know where to start After being seated we waited 15 min before even being approached by any serving staff. We were ready to order but we're told that he could only take out drink order and our server would be with us soon. When he did arrive we made our... More
