LOVE thin crust pizza and that's all they do at Dirty Dave's. It really lets you taste the flavor of the pizza topping and doesn't fill you up on "bread." Unlike other places, they also have a giant-size pizza that actually fits the description. The sausage and shrimp pizza we had was full of flavor. We also had the shrimp... More

I last had pizza from Gay 90's in Redlands, CA, during the early 1960's and it was the best. Now I hear it is in Olympia area as Dirty Dave's and I am going to visit it on Friday and can't wait to see if it tastes the same as I remember! Those cashews were a big hit!

I know, salad bars are so '80s, but I like a good salad bar. The salad bar is always fresh and clean with a good assortment of veggies. There is also potato and pasta salad and cottage cheese and fruit. Always two kinds of soup as well. My only gripe is I wish they had jalapenos all the time instead... More

Whenever I am in Olympia we will visit Dirty Dave's. They have a menu of sandwiches, salad bar, pasta and more but we go there for the pizza. Its sort of a hole in the wall place that hasn't changed in 30 years but I guess that is the draw for me. It's a family place where you can bring... More

Ok. Pizza is good, palatable. I was kinda disappointed after reading the "Rave" reviews. However, I'm a tough critic especially with pizza being my fav. Price was good considering the staff is superior. Suggestion* for the BBQ chicken pizza use shredded chicken for a better tasting chicken. Cube chicken tends to have a funky taste.. Again. KUDOS to the staff.... More

Best thing about this place is the staff. In 3 trips eating here they have been over the top friendly and helpful....the many news articles and other stuff on the walls (including photo's of patron's grandsons) are quaint and folksy entertainment. The food? It's OK....not bad, but about what you'd expect for the price of a lunch special for $7... More

YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's all I can say about Dirty Dave's. It's a dive, which is one of my favorite places to explore - we got carry out, but had to wait so i was able to check out all the fun stuff on the walls. The other food looked and smelled amazing. We got the Gay 90's Pizza... pep, sausage and... More

I've been to this place a few times and it's always delicious! The staff is amazing as well, my daughter has food allergies and and when I told the employee she talked to the cook and made something special just for my daughter. Love the laid back atmosphere. You won't be disappointed stopping here!

I have been eating here every time I am in the area and the Pizza is EXCELLENT. I first enjoyed their excellent Pizza back in the middle 60's before Dave moved North. The Pizza has remained the same over all the years. Recommend the Gay 90's Special.

We come here every year after cutting our tree at Ames farm. Pizza is thin crust, lite sauce, and just outstanding. It reminds me of the old Shakey's places. Eclectic interior, a lot of interesting things to look at and read about while you wait for your pie. GO!
