The first time I ate here was with my parents in the 1950's. Every time since that I have visited Reno I have made an effort to eat here because of the delicious dinners, the variety of offerings, the opportunity to visit with folks from all over and the great ambiance. I don't think you can find another place offering such a variety of Basque entrées, offering seconds if you want them (I can't imagine taking seconds since there's such ample servings to begin with - we couldn't even finish those). Try the beef tongue served with typical Basque-style with tomatoes, onions and bell peppers. I love the leg of lamb and especially the huge lamb chops. And you won't find better French fries anywhere.
This is a fun place to go with a group (with folks ordering different entrées so that you can share). Don't forget that a sizable glass of wine is included as is "dessert" (vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce or some very dry but great jack cheese). You simply can't find a better deal: soup, wonderful green salad, first course (changes often - in our case it was the beef tongue), great beans with Spanish chorizo (nothing like Mexican chorizo), main course-several listed on menu PLUS daily specials (prime rib, salmon, shrimp, and oxtails the 2 days we were there), dessert (see above) and wine. Try their special cocktail - Picon punch for $5 ($4 during "happy hour"). I can't wait to get back to Reno.
