Had a great meal at Daves. Plan ahead tjis place us usually crowded but well worth the wait if there is a line. We both had the jalapeño green chili burger and it was absolutely fabulous. Will definitely be back if we make another trip to cloud croft.

Another of our favorite places to eat. Dave's staff is friendly, attentive and works quickly. Their salsas come in red or green, either of which may be hot depending on the chilies that day. There is always a special that included your beverage for around $7.00. Their french fries are SO good, too. The fried veggies are some of our... More

We stopped on our way to Ruidoso, and it was well worth it. Great hamburgers that won't disappoint. Service was great and staff very friendly. We'll definitely be back!

We eat at Dave's when we visit Cloudcroft in the summer at our cabin. The burgers are wonderful, the fries are great, and the service is really, really good. The green chili cheeseburger is my favorite and my wife likes the Rueben.

Two couples visited here on 10/29/16. Friendly service (having a Holloween costume contest in town so lots of little ones dressed up). Food was hot and well prepared. Ice cream counter was the perfect dessert.

Just driving through Cloudcroft on the way to Sunspot on Columbus Day weekend. Ate lunch at Dave's Cafe--and what a great stop this was. Crowded and had to wait a bit, but the wait was worth it. Had the BEST Barbecue-Bacon-Cheeseburger. Wow! Warm and juicy and tasty through and through. 4 slices of bacon! lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, 1/3 lb ground... More

Cloudcroft is small w very limited eating choices. I ate here twice - once for lunch and once for dinner. Service both times was good/friendly. Basically a breakfast, burger and sandwich place. Food was good. The green chili burger was good and favorably compared to other green chili burgers I had in other parts of New Mexico (including Santa Fe).... More

My parents have a cabin in Cloudcroft & we usually visit once every month or so from Lubbock. This was our first time trying the food at Dave's. We brought my in laws from Ft Worth with us. We all LOVED the food! The chips & salsa were amazing!! Chips were fresh & the green salsa was probably the best... More

This little restaurant is located on Burro street and in a little hard to find. It is in one of the mall type buildings and has a small number of tables. Once inside, the restaurant entrance is halfway down the hall and the ice cream/dessert vendor right inside the door doesn't really like answering questions about it including even saying... More
