An Elko institution

Being my first visit to Elko I asked at my hotel about local favorites. The girl at the desk was new to the area so she was little help. So what else to do but check on trip advisor! Being a family style service its not well suited to solo dining but they do their best to accommodate. The... read more

The building may not look like much but the restaurant inside is wonderful. It is a Basque Restaurant and they serve you family style. The doors open around 5:00 pm for dinner but you need to go a bit early to put your name on a list and enjoy yourself at the bar. My favorite is a Pecon Punch! Its... More

We had to wait 45 minutes, but spent it in the full bar, people watching and laughing. Very friendly staff and great service The three of us were seated in the smaller dinning area and had our own 4-top. Cabbage soup was good. The house salad was very good. We all went with the rib-eyes and were very pleased. Juicy... More

This is a landmark restaurant, and anyone in the know who travels through this little town makes early reservations for The Star Hotel. Go in and say hello to Scotty! Try their famous steaks! Served family style, you'll have to hold yourself back from eating too much before the main dish arrives, because that rib eye or Filet Mignon is... More

Not everyone brings their family into this section of Elko, but for Basque style family dining this place is not to be missed. You may be seated at a table with other diners at your elbow and the din of conversations is loud, but the dining experience is a bit like Thanksgiving dinner at gramma's, i.e., lots of food prepared...

We went on a Saturday around 4:30 when it opens and there was a crowd waiting. We were seated quickly. The place was packed. Service and food was excellent. When we left I left my sunglasses behind. I notice Sunday they were missing. The star is closed on Sunday so Monday morning as we were heading home I dropped by.... More

Food well prepared, presented, and ample portions. You will not go away hungry from here. Drinks were very good, also.

The first thing I'd like to say is that i am not a native Elkonian, but a transplant from the suburbs of Detroit. Locals rave about this place, it a "must have" they say. Well, I could pass... The Picon Punch, a Basque staple is absolutely a great drink, Sam makes it perfect and 2 are not enough but three... More
