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.

Rappahannock Pizza Kitchen (RPK)

Located just on the other side of the the Blue Ridge in the little hamlet of Sperryville, Rappahannock Pizza Kitchen offers wonderful wood fired pizza in a cozy setting colocated with the Sperryville Country Store and Francis Bar. For pizza, highly recommended. 

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 newest addition to the Luray family of businesses, The Valley Cork is a great place to just relax a bit.
