I go for lunch whenever possible! It's less crowded. We usually fill up on the rolls just because we can't resist them. Love the streak salad for lunch, and I pick my own cut off meat when I go for dinner. I never go wrong!

There is no better hamburger/cheeseburger in this area or almost anywhere. There is no magic ingredient of which I'm aware. They do offer grilled onions as well as raw. I don't know why they are so good

As an Armijo High School alumni (class of '87) I remember going to Daves all the time during our lunch breaks because it was right next to the campus. Awesome burgers, the best in town. And you need to have one of their famous chocolate shakes to go with it. You will not be disappointed!

Really enjoyed the burger and shake I had recently. Only wish that served fries and onion rings. We will be back real soon.

Dave's is a small local establishment. They make very good burgers. Could exactly how you like it. Juicy, tasty, deliciousness! Similar to Nations, but a wee bit better.

I've been going to Dave's for more than 32 years. The quality never changes. Though Dave is gone now, succeeding generations have maintained his tradition, and it is hands down the best burger in town!

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.
