You wouldn’t expect to find a heavy Basque shepherd influence in Nevada. But you do! Yep, the Basque shepherds that migrated from Spain settled in the little town of Elko Nevada where they kept their traditions alive an well. The shepherds are a migratory bunch, that follow the movements of their sheep. Rarely do they stay in one place very long. All they need is a room for the night, a large family style meal and a cold beer. The Star Restaurant in Elko, NV honors that tradition and continues to provide those necessities to the Basque shepherds that still visit the area. If you’re ever in Elko, make sure to grad dinner there. The Star is a living piece of history.
