This is not fancy but the food is great and affordable. Loved the selection on the menu - it was hard to choose what to order and had a fantastic steak salad. Wish I had a place like this at home.

This is actually in Rahway, not Clark, on St Georges Ave. although the outside doesn't look like much, it is warm and pleasant looking inside with interesting decor. They have a wide menu but our large group all had burgers of different types, in the small 6.5 oz size. The meat was very fresh, they all tasted great, and prices... More

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

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
