If you have been to Nation's (which has been around since the early 1950's except in Fairfield), then you have already hadd a Dave's burger. It is basically the same recipe right down to the miracle whip in place of mayo, with the accompaniment of shakes and pies. The burgers are totally overpriced and Dave's does not sell french fries...

Best burgers in a 5 county region. Nine on the Yumm-o-Meter. Bring cash and be sure to order a shake. Only bummer, no fries.

I 've been going to Dave's since high school. The burgers are always very good and the service is always excellent.

Do you know fast food? Ok now imagine the opposite: a place where people is attentive, kind, and the food is simple but well cooked and really tasty. This place is Dave 's. Don't expect a poshy place, but a good ore.

The Down side is No fries. The burgers are well made and tasty. There is not a whole lot of room and the service is okay.

Dave's cheeseburger with grilled onions is the standard by which I judge all other burgers and, so far, it can't be beat.

Dave's has been around for years! It's a tiny little place with a counter and a few tables indoors and outdoors. They don't have a huge menu, they basically do a few things and they do them well! Awesome drip down to your elbows juicy burgers and cheeseburgers and great shakes. Don't go looking for french fries........they don't have them.... More

The burger was good, for a greasy spoon type of burger. Tiny venue certainly has one of the authentic American ambiences. No fries available. No restroom, which was a drawback for me since this was a road trip pit stop. Was directed to the church across the street to use their bathroom. Cash only but they have an ATM by... More

It is a small place that isnt much to look at but go for the burgers. Big burgers with huge slices of cheese and really good shakes. There are only a couple of tables inside and a couple outside. Overall I will go again
