We went there for a sit down breakfast. Took a while to get our seat and food as they were busy. Very good food and large portions.

We come back again and again for breakfast!!! Great food, we especially like the slingers! The kids are all actually able to all find things they like as well which is rare.

Small decent place in South County that's good for diner food. The staff is always friendly and smiling. Pros: Good breakfast options, good grilled cheese, good fries. Cons: Very limited vegetarian options, small (sometimes dirty bathroom) and lots of waiting if you have a party of 4 or more.

I went with my brother that eats there regularly. We had omelette with bacon and cheese. It was very good, the biscuit was just ok. The cooks and waitresses were very friendly and they cooked it as it was ordered. I will go there again.

Food was so bad even my 11 year old grandson who loves going out eat asked to not EVER go back again! Can't get worse than that. Took 15 minutes to have someone wait on us and another 30 to get our so called food. My husband and grandson did not finish their food - a FIRST for both. I... More

This is a very good, old fashioned diner with good food at reasonable prices. Not some place to impress out of town guests but a good place for lunch or breakfast. You will not go wrong stopping here. Service is great.

I've only eaten breakfast at Dave's Diner, but it's quite acceptable. A biscuit/gravy, an egg, and hot beverage rounds up to $5 or thereabouts. There is no ambiance, of course, but it seems clean and inviting. Oh, by the way, they don't take credit cards.

This is my favorite place to go for a weekday breakfast. We love sitting at the counter and chatting with the ladies working. The western omelet with hashbrowns is the best. Very welcoming atmosphere.

My Dad has been eating here for over 30 years. It used to be an Eat - Rite Diner until it was bought out by Dave. Every time we come into town my Dad takes us there for breakfast or lunch. I have always found the food and service to be excellent. The atmosphere is great and the place is... More

Called "Dave's Diner" for the past couple of years but it's still one of the local Eat Rite diners. All of the breakfast and lunch specials are good, but my all-time favorite is a simple bowl of their St. Louis Chile. Nice surprise last time I was there, they had quite a few hot sauces to choose from, including the... More
