I had the fish & chips and they were cooked to excellence. The french fries were circular. I though that was interesting. Good food, service, quality of atmosphere.

Food was excellent, large portions, and service staff were extremely friendly. My "petite" prime rib was larger than some normal sized ones I've had elsewhere. Enjoyed our meal.

Only two booths and one table had customers but we waited more than 8 minutes for her to seat us. For about 4 minutes, she just disappeared. wait staff was attentive but... More

This was the 2nd time I stayed in Elko, NV coming through town on my way home from a dog show. The staff at my motel suggested this place to eat. Food has been great both times. It's part of a casino.

Good food and service. Staff is accommodating for groups. They are willing to split checks. Carrot cake is exceptional...and huge!

JR's is, in my opinion, one of the best places to eat in Elko. Average prices, great food, good service, and a great dining atmosphere make for a pleasant visit. I highly recommend going for breakfast, as their breakfast staff is amazing.

I've travelled thru Elko a lot over the last decade, and I always try to hit JR's for a meal every time. Not as good as it used to be, but still decent.
