“Great Greek favorites”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Best Onion Rings by far! The restaurant has a great vibe and the food is great as well. The burgers and Gyro's are great but so are the Greek entree's. The pastitsio was delicious, the spanokopita is fluffy and great. Try the marinated tomato and mozzerella salad, it's amazing on a hot summer day! They even have an express location that will deliver.

“Cool place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

On touring downtown Harrisonburg, VA. we stopped at Dave's Downtown Taverna for lunch. This place is a neat place for young and old! We were seated right away upstairs. We had a choice of taking regular stairs or a spiral staircase. This place has exposed brick, ceiling and is very industrial inside however, very comfortable and gave you a warm feeling. The tables upstairs in the front overlooked the street with big windows. We were seated in the back with tables under glass ceiling, large exposed wooden beams and around a open railed area where we could look down into the first floor, additional tables, bar and stage. The windows in the back top floor were also large. The waiter was great, very attentive and quick. I had the Taverna Burger (1/3 lb. of choice ground beef and fries for $7.50) that was perfectly cooked and my husband had the Greek Meatball sub. The bread on both tasted homemade and was wonderful. They had so much that looked good it was hard to select something with great prices. Select from appetizers, salads, soups, sandwiches, pasta, hand-tossed pizza (Yum),specialties, beverages to include alcohol and specialties. They do takeout, parties and more. To add to the place you can go up a few steps to a rooftop bar and tables with umbrellas and heat lamps when weather permits it to be open and lookout the city. Quiet when we went for lunch but late nights could be an active place for the James Madison students. A must eat place in Harrisonburg VA. More places for lunch in town but this is one of the best for a great price.
