This place is not large so getting a seat inside during lunch is a challenge. Thankfully, it was sunny if not cool and we ate outside. The #1 thing about Davies was the service. Our waitress was fantastic. We were in a real hurry and she got us in and out very quickly. I had a low carb platter with... More

I have been going here for years. Great food, extremely fast service and very friendly folks! Can't beat the prices. So, if you are looking for a simple meal, in a cozy, family friendly atmosphere with extremely friendly service, go here!! It is on the Historical Register, been there since early 50's.

Friend and I had some time to kill before our flight out so we decided to hit a local joint. The food was really good and came out in a matter of minutes. It's a local place and the servers were great. Great value because the food was great, cheap, and huge portions.

We have eaten at Davies Chuck Wagon Diner on West Colfax several times in the last 8 months. Since we discovered it. It is a little compact vintage diner. The kind of building that probably came in sections and then was connected on site. It is really an adventure to eat there. They have the fastest service and kitchen that... More

I had read that the food was "fast food" but I don't really appreciate the idea of fast food. So I wasn't sure what to expect when we arrived at this old-fashioned diner. I was pleasantly surprised to find a good selection of food and the friendly, homey atmosphere of a local diner. AND our omelettes arrived incredibly fast, hot... More

Davie's is an adorable, original pre-fab diner is further out on Colfax - if you're a true diner aficionado it's one to check off your list. From the signage & the menu to the architecture, it's pure diner heaven. Waitresses are quick and attentive and your food comes out so fast you can't finish a conversation before the plates are...

This is the original Davies Chuck Wagon Diner, in business since 1957. To see and eat in a genuine diner is an experience every American ought to experience at least once. Their motto is "Decent food at modest prices." Everything in the diner is the real deal, including the service, food, and location.

Fast food at a great price. And fast, real fast. I love the people there best. Last visit there was a crowd of biker wannabes called the Window Sons or something. Reminded me of grown ups dressed for Halloween like in the movie "Hogs". Usually though the circus isn't in town.

I always look forward to breakfast at Davies Chuckwagon Diner in Lakewood. It's on the other side of town from where I live, but it's worth the drive. Have been going there off and on for around ten years. The steak and eggs breakfast is a bargain, and the atmosphere is just what it ought to be for a vintage... More
