“Love David's Breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

David's is THE BEST for an inexpensive DELICIOUS breakfast! Try the scramble bowl with canyon cubes (potatoes) eggs your way, sausage gravy, your choice of meat, and CHEESE! So good. Pancakes are excellent, and as big or bigger than the plate. Cannot go wrong here! Plus the staff at the 13th st location are always smiling! $5 working mans plate on Mon and $2 bbq sandwiches on Tues too!

“Not a fan”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

OK, I had the buffet. Let's get that out of the way since any thoughtful reader will understand that that usually is not the best quality option. That said, the ribs were good as was the mac and cheese. The pork was a little bland and the beans were over salted and average. Dessert was buffet standard, great for feeding and army but no stand outs. We were there during the busy time and housekeeping was less than optimal. That could be due to the volume (though there were only 8 other people in the dining area. Staff was friendly, though with a serve yourself venue it is hard to judge efficiency. Prefer Sonny's butgood for a change if you like the buffet format.

“Love the pork”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Pretty much a order at counter and sit down style. The pork is really good. Had the pork sandwich with slaw last time w/fries. I like the fries that are seasoned. The mustard BBQ sauce is off the hook. Love it. A lot of choices and all of them good. Go try it, you won't regret it.
