“Starving!”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

We dropped in for a late lunch after looking at others and not being impressed. The place was very busy and we were seated quickly. Our server was prompt in taking our order and we were served in a timely manner. The décor was reminiscent of old fashioned drug stores and they even had the malt making machines we remembered from our childhood.

“Eating in Fort Davis”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

On a recent trip to Fort Davis and Big Bend, we were fortunate to find the Fort Davis Drug Store. We ate breakfast there twice and received excellent service by Cliff. The food was home cooking away from home. The pancakes were some of the best I have ever eaten. The atmosphere was comfortable and casual. Bathroom was clean. On future trips, we will definitely eat there again.

“Interetsing and Convienant”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

While in Fort Davis we stopped by the Fort Davis Drug Store more than anywhere else. The place is old but has been updated so its really nice while maintaining that old time feel.

The 1st stop we made was when we arrived in Fort Davis. It was mid afternoon and we treated ourselves to a chocolate milk shake. It was excellent, really reasonable, and plenty of it!

The 2nd stop we made was when coming back from a day trip to Alpine, TX. We had diner in Alpine and we stopped by the Fort Davis Drug Store for some home made desert, fudge. They had at least 10 varieties on and we got 1/4 of chocolate pecan and a 1/4 pound of vanilla carmel turtle. Both were great but the vanilla was our favorite. Also the price was really inexpensive for home made fudge.

The 3rd stop was around 8:00 in the morning for breakfast on our way to Big Bend. We had the country breakfast which was 2 eggs, 2 pancakes, meat of choice, hash browns, and coffee. At $7.50 it might be the best deal in town. I was disappointed that the breakfast took a long time and by the time it reached our table wasn't hot. Other than that it was good

“Fantastic Breakfast!!”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

My husband & I ate breakfast here on a recent trip to Fort Davis. My husband ordered the 2 egg plate with hasbrowns, bacon, & pancakes and loved it. I ordered a sausage/cheese omlet with hashbrowns, sausage, & a biscuit; the omelet was the best I've ever had and the hashbrowns were perfectly done. My husband's pancakes were great; light, fluffy, and perfectly cooked. We will make this place a regular stop on our trips to the Davis Mtns.
