Great Basin Brewery and Restaurant
This restaurant offers something for everyone and a few things that may surprise you! Make sure and try the Mac Attack Pizza! A macaroni and cheese plus bacon covered pizza that is delish! Plus the cheese bread is so much more than what you expect when you order it! Order an Icky and enjoy a great local beer!
Great Full Gardens
Great Full Gardens is a vegan restaurant that offers something for everyone. The restaurant has a great vibe and the breakfast was amazing. John had the Elvis waffle and said it was delicious! The restaurant owners said they want to offer something for every guest so they don’t have to worry about being vegan or gluten free or having dietary restrictions. They want the restaurant to be a place guests can relax, enjoy amazing food and great company.
Gold and Silver Inn
This restaurant is like stepping into a time machine. You are transported back 30-40 years to a diner in the heart of Reno. The food is great quality diner food. Large portions of everything you hoped to find on a diner menu plus so much more. You can enjoy the Lemonade Pork Chops and the The Ground Beef Pounder that Guy Fieri had on Diners Drive Ins and Drives.
Brassiere St. James Brewery
This brewery located in Midtown Reno offers a delicious menu of food and beer! Don’t miss the Chicken and Waffles! Hello yum!
Two Chicks started as a grilled cheese food truck and turned into an amazing restaurant located in Midtown! From pancake dippers king style served with bananas, bacon and a peanut butter dipping sauce to The Bumble Brie sandwich with brie cheese, green apples, local honey served on cinnamon raisin bread! For a sweet treat try the Simply Sinful sandwich with Nutella, Peanut butter, marshmallow fluff, bananas on white bread. FYI we heard there is a secret menu item for Simply Sinful served on sweet potato fries!
La Strada at the Eldorado
1st please don’t just this delicious Italian restaurant off of our dark photo! The restaurant has amazing romantic lighting which sadly did not make for the best photos BUT the food is ah-mazing! You have to order the Cannoli’s! Seriously it is a must! Plus everything else is just as good!
This restaurant is hilarious and they have great food! Be prepared for aliens, giant plates of food and fun when you visit this restaurant. There are a few locations in Reno. We visited the South Reno location and it was beyond delicious! Try the chocolate covered bacon! They have an omellete unlike any we had seen before! Imagine peanut butter, apples, and more all wrapped up in a tasty omelette! John tried it and said it was actually a really great combination. He wasn’t sure but the waitress told him she has never had a customer not like it.
If you are craving a giant plate of biscuits and gravy this is the place to go! Holy Biscuits! You will not leave Kimmies hungry I promise! And if you do I don’t know what to say. The breakfast burrito was wonderful. If you happen to like bacon, sausage and ham order the Whole Hog Breakfast that comes with ½ slice of ham steak, 2 bacon strips and 2 sausage links, with 3 eggs any style and biscuits and gravy! Oh my!
This Italian restaurant came up many times when we asked for restaurant recommendations. Upscale Italian with fun menu items is how it was described to us. When I looked at the menu online I almost started drooling!
