Chose to eat here largely because it is on Burro Street and in the middle of the downtown action. I didn’t realize it was Dave’s until we got inside. We walked into the dining room and found a table. If there is signage indicating visitors...More

We went to cloudcroft for a bite to eat in the mountains. We didn’t check what was open and missed that the places we planned to hit were only open on the weekend. The food at Dave’s was ok. The Reuben was salty. The kids...More

Husband and I packed up RV to head home but needed dinner prior to departure. We ordered sourdough bread with roast beef, grilled onions and substituted green chilies instead of bell pepper. Delish! Had seen fried asparagus on TripAdvisor and we strongly recommend that appetizer....More

We had nachos and burrito. They were ok but later heard burgers and sandwiches are the specialty. Place was busy and bit disorganized. Fortunately, Lady at the bar was great. She found us comfier bar stools, submitted our order and suggested tasty beers.

Our high school rocket team descended on this place for lunch and they got us all seated in groups of 5 very quickly. The servers were friendly and gracious, and didn’t act at all upset by this unexpected rush. They worked together as a team...More

We went here on a recommendation from our neighbor and we are so glad we did. The staff was accommodating and friendly and the beer was ice cold. Food was great and fairly priced. They didn't mind that we shared.

Excellent food & service! My favorites are the green chili cheeseburger and their last special - a green chili Ruben. Prices are reasonable.

Friendly staff, but had to wait a bit to place orders or get refills. Omelets and pancakes were generously portioned and good. Some drinks tasted as if they came from instant mix.

Dave's Cafe is pretty straightforward: Beer and Burgers. Ahhh, but great beer. Let me rephrase that, GREAT BEER! So their burgers? Just as GREAT and quite a few delicious choices. The place is cozy and the noise level is surprisingly low even when the place...More
