Dave's is a very simple place with quirky decor and little ambiance. However, their food is worth the trip. The cheese steaks are some of the best I've ever had. They make great fresh burgers and their fries are fresh cut real potatoes, fried to a golden crisp on the outside with a nice chewy warm center. Everything we've ever... More

It was so good we went back for lunch and again we was not disappointed. Sloppy Joys sandwich, burger and disco... More

Our family goes here often for the breakfast. I have been once for lunch which was also very good. The wait staff is friendly and attentive, for the most part. The food is simple and delicious and the décor is fun and relaxed.

We've never eaten physically here. My husband picks up to go, whenever we are in the mood for a Taylor ham egg and cheese sandwich. Prices are reasonable too.

We used to get breakfast here. Best in the neighborhood. Not fancy, but good. They are no longer at this location. They moved to Rahway.

Dave's food is very good, but his front end staff is going to kill him. We stayed away for a year or more after encountering extremely rude and discourteous staff when they were in Clark. Now they are in Rahway and the wait staff is sabotaging him again. How would you like to see three tables get their food before... More

Just Plain Dave's, recently moved to Rahway, on St. Georges Avenue after many years in a too small space in Clark. The new location is much larger and able to accommodate many more customers and has a cleaner, more open feel to it. Also, much better parking in back of the restaurant and nearby. The food is as good as... More

This place is an awesome diner. I have to try to stay away I am fearful i will gain too much weight. The food is delicious and now they have double the space. could be a bit faster in the service but i hope they get used to the new location.
