“A great greasy spoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

We finally visited Dave's after wanting to for a long time. There are many menu choices and we enjoyed the breakfast food as well as the lunch food that we had. I'd visit again!

“A great place to stop for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

I have been to Dave's several times and your not going to loose any weight eating here but the food is good and cooked in front of you on the grill.

The staff works very hard and I truly appreciate their hard work and customer service. The food is priced well and hey have a large selection of items on the menu.

caves in Waukesha is a good place to go alone and sit at the breakfast bar or with the family and sit at a booth.

I will go back to Dave's again

“A Trip to Downtown Waukesha Isn't Complete Without a Stop at Dave's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Nothing fancy, but clean, with good food and service, and that is exactly why a trip to downtown Waukesha is not complete without a stop at Dave's. The service is consistent. There is something encouraging about actually seeing (no mystery) your food being made on the grill behind the counter, and the cook makes eggs perfectly! A great place to linger and kaffeeklatsch.

“Nice Place, Average Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

I was impressed by the bright atmosphere and cleanliness of the place. But the food, served in large qualities, was lacking. I would suggest more emphasis on quality vs. quantity.

“Reminds Me of Monk's on Seinfeld”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Food wise this place is just ok, but what keeps me coming back is the atmosphere of this place. Its a diner and that is all it wants to be. The perfect place to sit and talk about nothing. A great place to people watch too. Definitely worth checking out if these things appeal to you. At the end of your meal you'll probably be pleased with how little you owe.
