Always fun to go back to family roots

My grandmother boarded here when she was in school and it still is a working boarding house. I love the food and was fun to experience it with all my cousins last time we were there. Welcome to History - Pays Basque!

Basque are beautiful people from all aspects. They built and build from generations deep and they also operate the world known Family Style Basque Star or Northern Nevada. I being a native have been fortunate to know the past couple operators and anyone that says you can't perfect perfection has a closed palate and mind. The food served here (red... More

there was fourteen people in our group. I had made reservations. When we arrived our water was on the table. The first course was served almost before we were all seated. The food was amazing. Too much of it. I couldn't even taste each dish, but everything I did taste was absolutely delicious.

The Star Restaurant has continually been operated by local Basques, and is the top family style basque restaurant in town. Whatever you do, don't eat before going there, as the food is plentiful, to say the least. Note also, that the restaurant only takes reservations for groups of 8 or more. Thus, if you are a smaller group during a... More

We had heard so many wonderful things about this place so we decided to try it. We ordered 2 steak sandwiches and that was it. We opted to take out because it was so busy for lunch. First off the sandwiches were pretty tasty. But the sides were horrible. We got the fries and a salad. The fries were cold... More

This was definitely Basque. Lots of food, lots of courses, friendly staff, good service. Just seemed a little bland. Must be what you are used to. Different areas, different flavor so??? If ever thru Elko again we will try another place.

We had a wedding rehearsal dinner here. It was perfect- great atmosphere, crowd-pleasing food, good service. The only ding is that we had reservations for 7 pm and our tables weren't ready til 7:45, and only then because we suggested splitting our party into two groups. Way too late. But once the picans were served, everyone was happy. Go, you... More
