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

Lunch there today. Waitress seemed unfriendly and rushed, even though place was practically empty. Waitresses at other tables were friendly, however. This place is small and sound is amplified. Waitresses conversed with each other and familiar guests at almost shouting level, which was unpleasant. My lunch was not good- tiniest, flattest burger I've ever seen on a bun with lukewarm... More

I got the "Daves Favorite" omelette, which is basically a western-but with green AND red peppers. Everything tasted really good. Some negatives were the fact that the home fries were not included in the price, so I ended up spending over $10 fro both. Which in this area is expensive for breakfast. Also, they do not accept credit/debit card. They... More
