Have been coming to Daves for years, still do, but on my most recent trip I went I had my usual (Daves far out chicken) and it was really oily or greasy. And for some reason, it did not taste the way it used to like they had changed something. Will keep coming back if I'm in the area, but... More

Best subs in town. I always order the #1 hot. My hubby orders the #4 hot ( it is spicey). The roast beef with Cole slaw is always a winner as well. Can't go wrong at Dave's Cosmic Subs! There is truly something for everyone.

If you're hungry and want something satisfying ,this is the place to stop. The menu board is endless. If you can think of something great or different, I'm sure they have it. Fast friendly service. Prices are good. Eat there once and you will return.

LOVE Dave's!! Best sub bun any where and best sub sauce too! Pick up a bottle for home. Dave has unique combinations of ingredients and the staff at the Mentor store is exceptional!

Enjoyed a Dave's original hot sub. Very tasty sauce and lots of meat and cheese on the sandwich. Definitely a good value for lunch. Their pickles are excellent too. Have also had the Reuben and the Tasty Dave. Both are also excellent.

It'll take a few minutes to decide on a sub since the descriptions are long and there are many choices. Had the meatball sub and steak and cheese. Not bad tasting, but not the "best subs in town". Polite staff and sub prepared quickly. If you don't live 5-10mins from this place, then it's not worth driving out of the... More

One word-yum! The bread and Dave's sauce are the best! Everything is super fresh. I havent been disappointed in any sandwich-the worst thing about Dave's is trying to decide which sub to get. These are not typical "subway" sandwiches. The employees are friendly and the place is decorated in a fun/hippy style.

I have driven past Dave's quite a few times and finally decided to stop in and try it out. I am glad I did. The food is great. Service felt like home and very friendly. Prices are more than fair. A very wide variety of subs to choose from hot or cold.

The bread and sauces are fantastic. So many very tasty combinations that it's hard to pick a bad sub. I like the original but the San Fran is probably my fav... but then there's the Hey Dave sub... well, it's too hard to pick a favorite. The only down side is the strip mall location, it's fun to write on... More
