Rancho Viejo Mexican Grill and Cantina

The go to place in Luray for Mexican food is very popular with the locals. The menu is large and varied with a huge variety of tasty dishes. They have a good selection of Mexican beers and the Margaritas (if you like that sort of thing!) are very nice and won’t break the bank.

Phone: (540) 743-3775
The Speakeasy

A more casual alternative for food, drink and fun is the Speakeasy Pub located downstairs at the Mimslyn, an eight-minute walk from the South Court Inn.  Although it’s pub, the menu is more sophisticated yet the atmosphere is genuinely casual.  Live entertainment is offered, check the schedule for times and dates.

The Valley Cork

The newest addition to the Luray family of businesses, The Valley Cork is a great place to just relax a bit. They provide a wide selection of wines specializing on many local wineries and small eats to complement the wine. They are also a lovely venue for private events. So order a glass of your new favorite wine, some munchies and unwind in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. A very fun alternative in “downtown.”

Great Sandwiches

Triple Crown BBQ

A Luray favorite, Triple Crown has arguably some of the best BBQ in the area! It’s a roadside stand that is open seasonally and located near the Luray Zoo on Route 211 west of town. Foe BBQ, highly recommended.

Phone: 540-743-5311
West Main Market

A nice selection of gourmet sandwiches and wonderful salads are what you’ll find at West Main Market. The staff is friendly and quick, the selections unexpected. See for yourself and enjoy! West Main is just a 10-minute walk from the South Court Inn.
