Obviously a local favourite and a great place for lunch as we were close by for business. Great fresh, authentic Mexican food to be enjoyed with a bottle of beer! Quiet, snoozy drive back to Reno for those of us in the truck who didn't...More

You can't judge a book by its cover would apply here. The outside appearance of this little hole in the wall restaurant might cause some to pass on by, but what a mistake that would be. My wife and I loved the meals we chose....More

Well, the salsa was good, if thin, the bathrooms were clean, and the plates were hot. Apart from that, not much to write home about. We waited over 30 minutes from the time we ordered our food until it arrived, with no comment by the...More

The I-80 corridor across Nevada has little to recommend it in terms of scenery or ... well, little else. Authentic Mexican flavors at El Aguila Real make Battle Mountain a worthwhile stop. The outside of the building makes the place look like a run -down...More

I ate here as a party of 3 while visiting Battle Mountain. The service was fast and friendly. My margarita was rather bland as was the food. The tortillas were NOT made in house and this was quite disappointing.

We were in the middle of a long drive along I-80, craving Mexican food. The reviews on TripAdvisor led us to this restaurant. The food was great and served by a very friendly staff. We will definitely stop by again on our next road trip.

This is my absolute favorite place in my hometown to eat. I would put this place up against any good...no great Mexican restaurant. The best food and friendly staff. If you are here and hungry this is a must stop place to stop and eat!

I will probably never be in Battle Mountain, Nevada again. If this restaurant was near my home in Illinois, I would visit frequently. I would have licked my plate clean, but my mother raised me not to do so. The homemade salsa and seasoned refried...More
