Came here in the in-between time where they serve both lunch and breakfast and it was not busy. Have been here before in the early morning and had to wait, but not long. Service was wonderful; our waitress gave us her recommendations and any question we had she either answered right away or found out the answer and relayed it... More

This is the second time I have eaten at Dave's. We got there a little close to closing time so they were out of the chicken pot pie my sister was looking forward to. Our waitress was so friendly and suggested I try the soup. It was outstanding. I also had a tuna fish sandwich on toast, which was stuffed... More

We went to Dave's Diner after antiquing. (Our Garmin couldn't find it, so it was pure luck that we saw it.) The waitress was very nice. I had the roasted chicken sandwich with a side salad. The salad was AWESOME. The chicken sandwich was a little over cooked, I thought, but not outrageously so. And, because I had asked about... More

Small retro looking building. Staff is very friendly, food is really good. They close early afternoon so try to catch them for breakfast or lunch. Try the pulled chicken sandwich: it is really good. If you are antiquing, don't miss to have lunch at Dave's diner

A Very small diner, you would never know what existed. Food portions were huge, Bean soup was excellent. Dessert was to die for! Grilled Sticky Bun with Ice cream. Never knew you could grill a sticky bun. It was the bomb! Had the chicken finger salad and could not even eat a third of it. On the salad, they just... More

When I get back to Pennsylvania and visit my family in Reading, I always try to work in a stop at Dave's Diner. The food is great, the service just as good. And they serve an absoluterly outstanding Cream Chip Beef on Toast, which is the one thing you can't find in Texas. Just make sure to tell them you... More
