My wife and I have been to Davids several times. The food is always very good and the service on our last visit was exceptional. We have tried a variety of dishes and have never been disappointed. It is a BYOB which is also nice. The atmososphere is very relaxed and we have never felt rushed. If you are passing through Madison and want to stop for a good meal I suggest you try davids Runba cafe.

Just had dinner there last night, my daughter and her 2 children. Place was packed and service was great. We had tacos, fish burritos and pulled pork, all so good. Lots of fish in the burritos, pulled pork was on a good bun, with plenty of meat. Always satisfied with the service and the food.

Returned to David's after about a year to see if things have improved. We arrived for an early meal and were one of only two tables full - place has been re-arranged making more space and they got rid of the bar where the staff used to hang out at (and forget about the clients).
Like another reviewer we asked for Salsa and Chips several times and finally found a bus boy who was willing to get them for us - staff must have direction not to bring them out. Food was fine, still don't know why the fajitas are so soupy. I had tacos which were small but tasty and the rest of the meal was adequate.
Overall, the best thing about David's is that you can BYOB and thus the meal is reasonably priced (bring your own opener unless you want to wait). Food is just average. Too bad, this place could really be awesome.

Ordered beef fajitas - beef, onions and peppers came out soupy on the skillet more like oriental stir fry with gravy. Served with THREE soft, small 4 inch taco shells, one of which was torn. Burrito was ok. One waiter and one runner/busboy for 10 tables with thirty guests on a Sunday. Small basket of chips and half-filled container weren't re-filled. After several visits with nothing memorable, this will be the last.
