Unlike some of the other states throughout the country, Nevada doesn’t quite have that one food item that our state is solely known for. Many might associate us with all-you-can-eat buffets, but there’s quite a few hidden dishes that will knock the socks right off of your tastebuds. We recently talked about some of the best restaurants where you can grab a tower of
onion rings, but now it’s time to discuss the one neighborhood spot that has Basque dishes to die for.
Located right in the small town of Gardnerville you'll find the best place to grab a bite to eat, J.T. Basque Bar & Dining Room.
There's a ton of fantastic places where you can grab Basque cuisine in Nevada, but we have a sweet spot for this restaurant!
How to get here: 1426 U.S. Highway 395 North Gardnerville, NV 89410
Monday - Friday:
Lunch - 11:30AM to 2PM

Lunch - 11:30AM to 2PM
Dinner - 4:30PM to 9PM
As soon as you walk through the door you'll be intrigued by the restaurant's decor.
Not only is J.T.'s known for having amazing food, but their unusual dollar bill covered ceiling has become quite well-known. You'll also see an assortment of hats covering the walls, an overall Western theme that will fascinate you.
The choices are drool-worthy, any meat lover would be more than willing to lay their eyes on a menu like this!
One of the reasons why the meat at J.T.'s tastes so fantastic? They raise their own beef! A longtime family business, the Lekumberry family actually raises their own beef right here in the Carson Valley. Grass-fed and perfect as can be, you'll be able to taste the difference between the meat here and your Average Joe restaurant.
Another reason everything tastes so great? J.T.'s makes a huge effort to buy as much of their ingredients locally as possibly, getting potatoes from Winnemucca and onions out of the Smith Valley!
A place where you're guaranteed to enjoy yourself and the company you're with, you'll want to make sure you arrive on an empty stomach.
Talk about flavorful! Whether you're looking to chow down on a juicy steak or want to bite down on one of their unforgettable burgers, you won't regret any of these incredible Basque dishes.
Also, let's not forget about their spectacular sides! You'll quickly be won over by the fresh bread you're served here, but we're also partial to the tasty soups.
