After a day digging for Virgin Valley Black Fire Opals, casing a line at the Pine Forest Recreation Area, watching for wildlife at the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge, and exploring the other far flung delights of remote northwestern Nevada, there’s no better spot to grab a bite and refuel than the Diamond Inn Bar. Offering up a cozy, picture-perfect bar scene packed with locals and visitors alike most days of the week, expect a dollar-bill-covered ceiling, a satisfying lineup of bottled beers, and of course all kinds of tasty treats right off the grill at Jeff & Toni’s Diner, which operates from within the bar.
If you’re in the northwestern Nevada region on a Saturday night, chances are you might catch a weekly dinner special, though anything you order up from the made-to-order menu is sure to please. Located in the heart of northern Nevada, that means you’re in Basque country! Order up a Basque chorizo pizza, or giant breakfast burritos made with Basque chorizo, potatoes and cheese. Or, opt for diner classics like hot wings, a bowl of chili, corn dog, chicken strips, and much more.
Besides being the heartbeat of Denio’s social scene, the Diamond Inn Bar is also a great place to stock up on groceries, ice, and other essentials you might need as you explore this remote corner of Nevada. While you’re here, be sure to check out a display of locally made goods, including jams and jellies, jewelry, and more.
The Diamond Inn Bar is open seven days a week from 11:00 AM to 11:00 PM. However, as with most Sagebrush Saloons, make sure to give ‘em a call before you hit the road to double check they’ll be open upon your arrival.
