“best breakfast we have found in mesquite”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

I gave up on Eureka as the food got worse and the service next to non-existant. Tried the virgin river cafe and was pleasantly surprised. Ham steak was tasty and juicy as opposed to dry and tough at Eureka. Eggs fixed just as we asked and service not only existed but was very good and pleasant. Hashbrowns were over-abundant like the ham 16oz. coffee cups never got below 1/2 before being refilled. Gave a 30% tip and left happy. Mesquite appears to be on hard times and it is nice to find somebody that is not only trying, but doing a good job.

“Prime Rib dinner really good!”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

This restaurant is located inside the Virgin River Casino. We arrived just before 10:00pm which was the cutoff time for the $5.99 Prime Rib Dinner. My brother and I each ordered one. He had his medium-well and I ordered mine well-done. While the cut of meat my brother got was generous in itself, the one I got was TWICE as thick! I can speculate that it was because the chef didn't expect too many more orders for it that night, and so I got a lot more beef! Yum! I had mashed potatoes and gravy with mine, and my brother had a baked potato. Overall the whole dinner was great and was an excellent value.

The next morning we had breakfast here. We each had the "Deuces Breakfast" for $3.99. (It's two eggs, two bacon, two sausage and two pancakes.) Again we had a good meal. The service was very good on both visits.

“overall ok”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

We had a group of five, which they had trouble accomodating. The service was dissapointing, the floor and tables and chairs were dirty as was some of our silver ware. The food was a good value, and pretty tasty.
