I think David means Wool Growers. Basque dining. Food just keeps coming. Then some more.
If country music is your thing, don't miss Buck Owens' Chrystal Palace. Pricey, but great food and music,

But that ain't Basque food...just plain old American slop...but the wine is good. They wouldn't know how to make real Basque food.

Erik's correct. Now if you just want Basque food, go to Minden, NV to J T's. Not like the old days when you sat a long tables & ate what they brought out, now you get your own table and even a menu. Still good though! But I miss the old days--best steaks ever too. . .

Noriega Hotel or Wool Growers for dinner, Dewar's on Eye Street for dessert.

I learned a new word on old US 99. Staying at a motel in Fresno, about 1944. Mom had a bottle of perfume that leaked in a suitcase. When she opened it and caught a whiff she said, "Boy, that stuff's potent!" Trains steaming by on the tracks across the highway provided entertainment all through the night.

Steve,
Better stop at Dewar's first, after eating at either of those joints, you won't have room for desert!!!

Dave, Steve,

I tried stopping at Dewar's first last year. Had an ice cream sundae at about 2:00 in the afternoon. Slept until dinner time and woke up still full. Wound up going to In 'N Out at about eight that night and having a small burger. Never did make it to Noriega's.

I think the choice is D's or N's, but not both on the same day. Maybe not even on the same weekend !

Dick
