They have a full menu, but twice in the same week I was told during regular restaurant hours that the grill was shut off and the only thing I could get was the special that is prepared in the microwave. Some kind of ham dish...More

Fair price. Ample portions. I had the chicken fried steak and eggs. The portions were huge, the chicken fried steak was crispy on the outside. The gravy was homemade. Great value for the money. Definitely would stop here again

We were camping south of Onion Reservior and ran low on ice, so decided on a road trip to Denio. Ice, burger and a brew filled the bill. Reasonable prices, good food and great service!!

Denio Junction is indeed an oasis in the northern outback of Nevada. Travelers will be well served to look beyond the dusty exterior and enjoy the warm refuge of a spot with real character. Stopping for lunch after a long haul across Oregon and Nevada's...More

This cafe is the only restaurant within 100 miles in any direction here in the high desert "Outback" of northern Nevada. Serves full breakfast, lunch and dinner to hungry locals and visitors. Located at major junction of two main highways. Has bar and souvenir shop adjacent. Next to motel. The food was hearty and plentiful. The 1/3 lb. "Denio Burger" is a local legend. Please enlist this property on TripAdvisor and I will write a review about it. Thank you. MonkeyOnTheWing...
