Sadly, El Borracho Restaurant has closed due to the retirement of the owners :-( They will be greatly missed by many who live in Northern NV and many who visit our great silver state! Happy Retirement guys! We will all miss your wonderful restaurant!

We found this great spot on our house hunting trip to Reno. Best service and authentic food we ever had. And truly family owned and operated in every sense of the word.

Wins the best of Reno Margaritas in our book every time! The owners are very friendly and the food is consistently spectacular! Try the bisteca chicana, the abondigas soup, and my favorite...the chicken mole! We have tried almost everything on the menu and NOTHING disappoints!...More

El Borracho has been pleasing diners since 1960 at this location. When you tire of the buffets, this is a nice change of pace. Several combo dinners around $15-17 that will leave you feelling full. The cook will sometimes mix with customers, a friendly touch....More
