This was the only restaurant open during our fall visit to Great Basin, and the man at our hotel who referred us told us to "go to the gas station." As a result, we were a bit skeptical, but the food was very, very good, and the service was excellent. The menu is one step above basic - chicken fried... More

The food was pretty good but somewhat expensive due to the remote location. Warning and a word to the wise: park where you can keep an eye on your vehicle. Without out going into the details, two males in their late teens/early 20's and a female in her early 20's were behaving suspiciously while we were waiting for our carryout... More

I had the biscuits & gravy and a side order of bacon for lunch. Best I have ever had! Big chunks of sausage in the gravy. Five big thick pieces of bacon cooked just right. Definitely would recommend stopping here in the middle of nowhere to eat.

Very pleasant people hotel is old school but very nice. You have everything in one place. Very quiet which is amazing because it's right on highway. The food was very good.

I had the open faced roast beef sandwich and could only eat half of it. My husband had a hamburger. Both of us enjoyed our meals.

Food average. Most staff very friendly except for one guy which he was like a punk. Oh well, I wouldn't stop there on our vacation ever again .

As there are only 3 restaurants in the Baker, NV area, this was by far the best we visited. Basically a truck stop on the border just 7 miles short of Baker. We ate breakfast and dinner there for 3 days. The Electrolux in Baker was closed and the TD Restaurant was pricey for what you got. The 1 dinner... More

We split a breakfast omelette and hash browns because the portion size was more than enough for the two of us. It was very delicious, service was prompt, price was acceptable. After the meal, the server brought the check and we paid for it at the gas station counter. That was odd.

We stayed here 2 nights and were happy with the rooms and variety of services offered. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Wifi was not available in the rooms but worked fine in the restaurant, bar, lounge, and casino. We ate a couple of meals in the restaurant and our food was tasty. Gas and a convenience store were...

We stayed at the Border Inn two nights but only ate breakfast in the restaurant, preferring to go to the Lectrolux Cafe in Baker for dinner (and beer) both evenings. For breakfast, it's decent, nothing fancy. The dining room is full of interesting photos and objects. You pay at the convenience store register after getting your check. There's a small... More
