During an over-night stay in Battle Mountain, we stopped at the El Aguila Real Restaurant for dinner. We'd read the reviews and were not disappointed. We started with blended margaritas - very good. My wife had the nachos with beef - shredded, not ground. I had the chicken quesadilla. Both were well made and generous in proportion. This is a... 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 beans served with chips prior to our meal were delicious. We both had shrimp dishes... More

We visited this restaurant on our way from Utah to California. It was a clear choice for dinner because of the on line reviews and recommendations from the hotel staff. The restaurant was comfortable and clean; the service was quick and the waiters friendly. Our order was simple: chicken enchiladas, tamales and tacos. The chicken enchiladas were great. They were...

Excellent service and food! Picadillo beef enchiladas were the best! Our entire group loved the food! Stopped here going across the country. Will stop again on our way back!
