Best steak in town

Try it; you will like it! The Star Hotel is a must eat here when visiting Elko. You better be hungry because this is a full meal with soup, salad, and much more.

Always a treat, if you like basque style food (or never had any) you must stop in at The Star. We enjoy their Picon Punch in the bar to get our appetite whet. Then we enjoyed family style servings of homemade soup, salad and a good variety of main dish recipes. I love their lamb chops! Have stopped here a... More

I ate my first meal here over 40 years ago. The last time I was there was a few weeks ago. You'll have more food than you know what to deal with. All entrees come with sides that are pretty much full meals. It s a one of a kind experience that I dont believe any other restaurant offers. For... More

We almost alway eat here when passing through. The scene is mostly local & many workers from nearby mines. Tables are regular sizes & also family style. Food is hearty and well prepared; we never finish all we are given. Wine list is simple but inexpensive, & just fine. This is certainly not "one of the best meals we've ever... More

Being a "local" one would think I would get tired of frequenting a number of restaurants over and over again but that being said, it's because we have several excellent ones available. I never get tired of going to The Star. Arguably one of the best steaks in the region in a family atmosphere with an attentive staff and a... More

The food is great if you can get in before getting drunk. The wait is usually so long that if you are not careful you will be drunk before you ever have your meal.

We hadn't been to Elko in a couple years, and were sad to see neighboring Basque restaurants had closed. The Star, however, is an icon. Meals are served family style ... and mama chooses the sides; you can take 'em or leave 'em. Cabbage soup is very simple, yet tasty. Same for the salad, which comes with the Star's own... More

Excellent meal in a traditional working boarding house. Specializes in Basque food. Great for a group. Bar was very popular!

My husband and I were in Elko for the recent Cowboy Poetry Festival and were repeatedly told we had to try this restaurant. Sure, there were crowds of people waiting to be seated....we waited 2 1/2 hrs after being told it was an hour and a half wait....but that was to be expected considering the well attended event in town....

It's a very historic place with some interesting history. Don't go there unless you're very hungry and/or have a great appetite. I went there with three friends and we had to wait in line with about 30 other people till they opened the dinning room. The meal started with a large bowl of cabbage soup which we all dipped into;... More
