Dave’s Dark Horse Tavern

With their slogan of “Never Graduate”, Dave’s Dark Horse Tavern has become one of the most well-known locations for new live music in the Starkville scene. With an atmosphere more unique than ever, Dave’s offers a variety of food that ranges from Chicago Deep-Dish Pies to Greek Gyros. Located on Highway 182, Dave’s is a hole-in-the-wall location that provides some of the best food, according to customers.

Their crowd favorite is the “Walter Payton” Chicago-style deep dish. The Walter Payton features ground beef, canadian bacon, pepperoni, and italian sausage. Their menu also features burgers, wraps, gyros, salads, calzones, and “pub grub” that can satisfy any palette.
