Start with a Picon Punch (picon is a Spanish orange liqueur; layered with brandy, grenadine on top and a twist of lemon peel in a special Picon glass), finsh with flan (very creamy and smooth). In between, I doubt Joey Chestnut could finish dinner. The T-bone is more like a porterhouse (eat the filet side and take the rest home).... More

This place is great! My later father was familiar with the Basque-style meals and atmosphere served at other Basque restaurants in northern Nevada, namely in the Reno and Carson City regions. He visited them from time to time as a kid with his parents -- his mother was half Spanish Basque and Washiw/Paiute. He always told me about them and... More

I had no idea how much food was going to be served....save up your appetite! It was all very good and luckily we were able to take leftovers home. I do feel like it was served too fast.

Great family style Basque Restraunt. Soup and house salad dressing are amazing. If you love garlic this is the place.

I've never had a Basque dinner that I did not enjoy and the Star Hotel offers one of the best. Make sure you are hungry before you go the portions are huge. We loved the salad, soup and bread that started the meal. To be honest, my mom and I could have been very happy with just soup and salad... More

While spending one night in Elko, NV we decided to try this Basque restaurant. If you're vegan or vegetarian, probably you should make another choice. Meat in the form of beef, lamb and pork are the featured menu items. This family style restaurant serves up an abundance of dishes highly flavored with garlic. The salad dressing in particular has a... More

A busy (at least on a Saturday night) bar and restaurant that serves amazing food and great portions of it. While you're waiting for a table (diners eat family style at long tables and share all the sides with fellow patrons) belly up to the bar and order a Picon Punch. The first sip isn't necessarily indicative of the rest... More

I always have dinner here when I'm in Elko. The steak is magnificent and there is a very local and home feel to it. Make sure to make a reservation, it fills up fast for dinner.

I make it a point to go to The Star every time I am in Elko. Their simple salad with extraordinary dressing is the best, and I cannot emphasize the best enough. The meals are hearty with a full complement of sides. They do the fish dishes right and their steaks with a big side of garlic are tops. You... More
