This place has flown under the Chowhound radar, even in "places to eat in Long Beach" posts. It popped up on my Iphone GPS and had 4 1/2 stars on Yelp. My phone does that automatically I guess. Since I had to run an errand in Bixby Knolls, I decided to try their burger. Surprise #1: It's a tiny stand sharing a lot with a Chevron gas station at Wardlow and Atlantic. Surprise #2: No "Dave", but two nice and friendly Asian women manning the grill. Surprise #3: No fries, ala Tommy's in the old days. Just chips to go along with a whole slew of various burgers, including chicken, turkey and dogs. Surprise #4: Every burger is $3-$5. I had the basic burger, and it's an excellent burger done the old fashion way, with lettuce, tomato and pickle.
I think this will be a regular stop for me, even tho I love fries with my burger. Then to Bake & Broil for dessert.
FYI I think there is another Dave's nearby, but I don't believe they are related.
