J T Basque Bar & Dining Room Gardnerville Reviews
The best in Northern Nevada! Mar 24, 2008
My wife is Basque from her Father's side of the family so we love to eat Basque food. She can even speak Basque, but that is another story.
Many Basque families came to settle in Northern Nevada so there are lots of Basque restaurants in the area and we have tried most of them.
JT Bar is, without a doubt, the best of them.
Her parents live in Carson City, which is about 20 minutes north of Gardnerville, so we eat at JT at least once a year when we visit.
Basque eating is festive and done family style. There are basically a few long tables here, with everyone eating together.
When you walk in, there is a bar to your right, and the restaurant part is towards the rear.
There are a few choices for a main dish, with lamb chops always being available. Some of the other things we have seen are chicken, steak, rabbit, sweetbreads, and fish.
You also get unlimited side dishes that include soup, salad, fries, beans, and bread.
You will not leave here hungry!
The red table wine is a perfect beverage choice, or go with the Picon Punch for a real Basque drink.
The staff is always quick and professional.
The owner is usually around and will chat you up at your table.
JT Bar is open for lunch and dinner, but arrive early, as it is a very popular place that gets crowded no matter what day of the week it is.
Our favorite dish is the lamb chops loaded with garlic.
Comes with unlimited salad, soup, beans, fries, and bread.
The red table wine is awesome!
There is ice cream and coffee for dessert and is included in the price.
Expect to pay roughly $20 per person.
