Dinner in Elko, NV vs. Winnemucca, NV

We ate at the Star Hotel in Elko for a Basque dinner this week during a roadtrip. Compared to the Martin Hotel in Winnemucca where we ate two years ago, the Martin is older and more atmospheric (smaller room and crowded family style tables) but the Star had better food. The Star is also an old hotel with group tables, but it has been modernized a bit over the years. The dinner included bread, salad, cabbage soup (much better than it sounds), spaghetti (weak), beans, green beans (weak), french fries and of course your main dish. I had the special bacon-wrapped filet mignon ($17.50) which was too large to finish, but prepared well. I overheard some of the local miners saying they wanted the regular order of filet mignon as it was twice the size ($30). I would recommend both restaurants, compared to the other junk available on I-80.
