This is a very small, family owned restaurant. They are well known for their hand-cut tenderloins: you can get them breaded or grilled; both are good. Even though they are known for their tenderloins, I prefer their broasted chicken much more. It is always hot...More

While out for some sightseeing, we stopped in at Mr. Dave's to experience the often heralded hand prepared pork tenderloin sandwich. The walls are covered with awards and news articles praising the specialty. I noticed all are a few years old. Telling perhaps. My bride...More

We had the famous Mr. Dave's tenderloins and yumee onion rings. The tenderloins were not as huge as they used to be but were certainly sufficient. The sandwich is out of this world. Meat so fresh and breading just right!!! Onion rings very good also....More

The chicken and tenderloins are good but I go for the baked beans! We like to pick up and take home, because they are quick.

Best non-corporate place in town for a grab-n-go meal, but not amazing. First meal I had here - fish and chips with broasted potatoes - was perfect for what I needed. The coleslaw is too runny and has too much vinegar and mayo. But I...More

My wife was a car hop at Mr. Dave's in the 1960s. Incredible sandwiches -- especially freshly ground fourmet tenderloins and even better sausage sandwich with kraut. Also great fries, shakes. Don't miss it.
