This restaurant is incredible in every way. We found the service to be kind and personable, the atmosphere was enjoyable and the food was absolutelt divine! I passed up all the other restaurants along the boardwalk because I wanted some Mexican food and boy was I right. My kids, husband and even my 1 year old had a great time... More

Outrageous fried chicken. Cooked to order on Wednesdays and Sundays. More than enough excellent chicken, mashed potatoes and slaw. Not to be missed.

We had lunch here after our Virgina an truckee train ride from Carson City. We picked it since it was a few blocks uphill from the main part of town and away from the tourists who overwhelm the place on weekends. We enjoyed our food and beer, and appreciated the historic ambiance of the dining room. I was not aware... More

Had lunch here with a group of 6 based on Trip-advisors reviews. It is a walk from the main area but worth it. The food was great! It wasn't very busy but I think that is because of the location. If you know where you're going you can park by the restaurant but we didn't so it was a hike.... More

Thursday evening in Virginia City, and "Café Del Rio" was very busy! The reason? The best food in town.. by far! Mrs. Mowerboy had a chicken enchilada, and she said it was better than any one she had ever had, and she finished the whole thing! (..and it was a plateful, too.) I opted for the special, which was BBQ... More

Good food; old west ambience. Fish soft tacos were delicious. And if you like light, crunchy tortilla chips these were some of my favorites ever! Nice walk east on C Street - slightly east of central downtown. Enjoy!

We arrived in town on a Wednesday and when we asked where we should have dinner we were directed to the Del Rio, Located in one of the many historic buildings on C.... More

We ate here twice while in Virginia City. The Gospel chicken was extremely good! The server was very nice and the second evening we ate there there was live music too. We loved it!
