The Star Hotel is actually NOT a Hotel, there are rooms upstairs that use to be rented years ago but are only occupied by the handful of retired Basque Sheep Herders that sit at the end of the bar sipping on a Picon Punch waiting for their turn to have dinner. The Star was built in 1911 and has withstood... More

Served family style there was so much food one could not eat all of it. The green beans were very good with lots of garlic. The salad was not creative...just head lettuce and dressing. If you are not too hungry you can skip the entree and just have salad, soup, three kinds of beans, bread, pasta, dessert and coffee for... More

My Family opened the Star Hotel many years ago, and you can't go wrong with this place. You won't be disappointed. Think Buca Di Beppo, only better. The Star is the real deal.

Well what can I say, I came, I ate, I waddled out! This place has been good to me and my family for 4 generations. On our yearly migration back to the family spread in Wyoming we always make Elko a stop, JUST to go to the Star Hotel. Traditional Basque cooking and lots of it. I think there are... More

Wow! Come hungry or don't come!!! Served family style, this restaurant is for hearty appetites. The entrée is huge then you're served three different types of beans, salad, soup, bread, and a mountain of French fries. This is truly gluttony heaven! If you don't request a "to go" box, I am exceptionally impressed. The problem with all this is that... More

My brother and I are on a flying trek in an antique airplane in the Southwest. One of our stops is in Elko, Nevada. We asked our cab driver "Where's the best steakhouse in Elko?" He said, "Definitely, the Star Hotel. In fact, I think it's the best steakhouse in Nevada." So, that's where we went. And, boy, was he... More

If you're traveling thru Elko, NV the Star Hotel is a must, probably the best Basque food I have had. Dinners are served family style in a very friendly and casual atmosphere. Nothing stingy here when it comes to portion size. Try the petite filet, melt in your mouth deliciousness! I admit I was leary of the cabbage soup wow... More

Steaks, whatever you pick, are to die for. $30 a person but it is all worth it. Your meal starts with a cabbage soup, then a very delicious green salad and bread. Then your sides keep filing up in front of you which includes: spaghetti, baked beans, green beans, and french fries. Steaks are mouth-watering and very tender. We try... More

If you're traveling thru Elko, bring your appetite for a big feed, family style. Save room for your entree. The opening soup is quite good. Skip most of the bland iceberg lettuce and forget about the spaghetti that is like chef-boy-r-dee. The fries and beans are nice. The roast lamb is tasty lamb shanks. The grilled chicken is nice and... More
