Of the restaurants under the Red Lion umbrella, we enjoy JR's the most! The food is cheap, the portions are big and the ambiance is casual. The service has been mostly OK during the times we visited, but during our last visit, the service was fantastic! Our waitress, Sammy, waited on us hand and foot and had an extremely cheerful...

You will love this place for burgers! We had the garlic mushroom burger and a burger with guacamole, cheese, and bacon. Both burgers were juicy and cooked perfectly. The fried sweet potato were good, not greasy at all. One of us chose the onion rings and they were good, too. A great place to stop for lunch or dinner on... More

Leslie, thank you for your review of our famous burgers! We only use fresh ground beef to make the burgers and it makes a difference with our guests. Many of our locals also like the sweet potato fries too. Thank you for stopping in and we invite you to stay at our hotel casino on your next drive to Elko. More

Very clean, good food restaurant. Ample portions, we decided to share, they were more then happy to accommodate even split meal on separate plates without our asking.

We got a meal that filled our stomachs, didn't make us ill, and was inexpensive; good enough after a long day's driving. Good baked potato (it's hard to ruin a baked potato, I think), subpar New York Strip Steak. Service was adequate but the wait staff was clearly more interested in talking to her colleagues. Inexpensive, but adequate. Don't go... More

Thank you for dining with us, but I am disappointed that you didn't receive better service and food. We have a great reputation but obviously we didn't meet our standards in serving you.

Checked in to the Gold Country and received a coupon for $5 off a meal and a free beer at JR's. There are a lot of choices for great food in Elko so without the coupon I probably would have gone to an old standby like the Star. It was late and we were too tired for a long dinner... More

Like many folks, this was a stop on our way to California. Stayed at the Best Western, so it was wonderful to be able to walk to the restaurant. It is attached to a casino, so there is a bit of the smoke, but they do a pretty good job of ventilation. Food and service was very good. Busy on... More

We went into this hotel lobby full of slo machines to have lunch at this cafe. Stood in line with 3 other people for 15 minutes (it definitely was not crowded)and no one showed up to seat us. Turned around and left. Wow,
