While on business in North Manchester we stopped for lunch here based on a recommendation from a local businessperson, and we were not disappointed. We had, between us, grilled and breaded tenderloins, and both were well prepared and tasty. Mr. Dave's is a nice local place, and definitely someplace to try.

Sandwiches taste fresh because they are. Tenderloins are hand breaded and burger is ground daily. Made to your order. Great food and variety.

I got a cheeseburger and fries that were both excellent. I talked to Mr. Dave himself and he explained that they grind their own beef and hand patty it. The fries were also great. Hot and crisp. They also recommend the breaded tenderloin.

Was in town for a family and MHS reunion, trip would not be complete without visit here. Once again, was not disappointed. Food was hot and fast. Breaded tenderloin still cut larger than the bun. Broasted potatoes were exactly as remembered. Faces changed, but Mr. Dave's did not.

Not too many places to eat since the town is pretty small, but I'd recommend this regardless. Decent prices and good food.

I had the special of the day with was just ok. I was a little shocked that my portion was on the small size. The French fries were good but the onion rings, not so much. Seems like they were the frozen kind. Others in my party did like their food. I wish I tried the tenderloin.

Good hand breaded tenderloins. Hamburgers are ground chuck. Fish and chicken dinners are very good. Get the broasted potatoes. Fries are bland. Onion rings are good. Mushrooms could be good but are usually full of grease.

Love their cheeseburgers, onion rings, and Cole slaw. Lots of other great things. They make their own breaded tenderloins, and their grilled ones are great too.friendly and clean.

Another "local" spot that we love! Mr. Dave's are famous for their Tenderloins, but we love their Broasted Chicken!
