Always a pleasure to visit Dave's previously Eat Rite Diner on So Lindbergh. But you have to realize it is small with one cook cooking to order so if it's busy you will wait for your order but it is worth the wait. I always...More

I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this place. Not only was the food very good, but the attention and friendliness of the server was wonderful. I ordered a cheeseburger and fries, and they were terrific. The burger had excellent caramelized onions on it. The...More

At first sight, we were unimpressed. It's a small place in a strip mall with a "cash only" sign on the door. We were literally the only people in the place, including employees. I even went into the back, and there was no one. We...More

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.

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.

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.
