Cafe Del Rio

Ever since launching the Then And Now section of the site two weeks ago, I’ve been on a roll. I’m up to a total of eight articles, which for a procrastinator like me is quite an accomplishment in only 16 days. The latest one, just posted today, is the first one where I revisit a photograph that I myself took. It’s a before-and-then comparison of the new Cafe Del Rio restaurant in Virginia City, showing how much renovation they did to the space.

Cafe Del Rio Interior - 2006

We made a special trip up to Virginia City last weekend just to eat at the Cafe Del Rio, and let me tell you, it was worth every mile. That was some delicious food right there. I had a burrito and Viola had a Mahi Mahi taco, and it was some of the best Southwest/TexMex food we’ve tasted. One problem we’ve had with VC is that there aren’t a lot of good places to eat when you go up there. There are hamburger stands in some of the casinos, and there are bars that serve food, and a couple of restaurants, but nothing we’ve had up there has ever been that great. But now, with the Cafe Del Rio open, that has all changed. I mean, the restaurant is a destination all by itself, but I’m sure it will be even better as the topper to a full day on the Comstock. I urge everyone who’s reading this to make the special trip up there and try it out. You won’t be sorry (a menu, address and map can be found here).
