If you like to eat this is the place to go it's a Basque Restaurant and the food is quite good and the bar is a great place to meet up with friends. Right in the middle of the town.

Of several Basque (and formerly Basque) restaurants in our Gardnerville NV area: I think JT's is the best. Been there for lunch and dinner many times. Also, JT catered an enormous political rally for 1500 people in 2016. Out of this world. The Basque community pitched in with grilling equipment and all kinds of services. (Can you imagine feeding 1500... More

This was a much talked about Basque restaurant. Had the Chicken sandwich. It was a grilled chicken sandwich with a few garlic cloves. Was average. $10 for an average sandwich was too much. The host was one of the owners and was pleasant lady. The service other than her was mediocre. Skip it. Don't waste your money here.

For us, it's always a special treat to go to the JT. There are certain dishes that we always order and we always look forward to all the sides that come family style. Soup, bread, stew, salad, and those fries! Many times I'll order a steak and take it home and just eat all the sides that come with it.... More

We eat here at least once a month. The food is fantastic and you do not go home hungry. A great selection that changes nightly. With the meal you get soup, salad, bread, beans, french fries plus wine and ice cream for desert.

Six adults and a baby went here for dinner. As we have eaten here numerous times, we were some what disappointed this time. The Service was VERY slow and the side dishes (only two) were not up to their standards. The Chicken with Rice was stuck together and was way to spicy for most of us, not at all like... More
