Michele, owner of our motel, recommended the Del Rio and their popular chicken dinner. Café Del Rio mainly serves Mexican food but they also have nightly specials. 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!

We stopped there for lunch while visiting Virginia City. They have awesome steak tacos. The food looked very fresh and the chips were made on site. We had a person with Celiac disease (gluten allergy) in our party, and when we explained what she needed, the server double checked with the chef and everything went smoothly. I would recommend.

I was very disappointed eating here. We came in with a wedding party of 16 with reservations. They didn't even act like they were expecting us. The tables were set up, but that was all. There wasn't any water, or pitchers. They were out of margaritas, which we were all drinking. The host/server was harried and short. They wine list... More

Wednesday 7-16 - 2014 My friend and I were told the chicken dinner at the Cafe Del Rio was the greatest. After our chicken dinner Wednesday evening we have to agree and give it a five star + Our waitress Tawny gave us excellent service. We will be back for sure. :)

Everything about Cafe Del Rio was very good. The only negative comment I could make is that the service was extremely slow from getting our menus to taking the orders to delivering the food to getting the bill. We had to ask several times for the check. Since we weren't very hungry to begin with, this wasn't a big deal.

We had a delightful meal here. Ordered the Gospel Chicken salad and Yucaton enchilada. We shared but it was too much for us. Really unique flavors in the enchilada. The chicken was lightly fried and delicate. There was plenty of veggies in the salad along with avocado.....not just lettuce! The margaritas were a bit too sweet for me.
