Awesome homemade hamburgers!

If you're looking for a legit homemade burger and fries Dave's is the place to go! This food will take you back to when there were sock hops and soda shops. Or a kid in the 70s at the local burger shop. Dave's Burger Barn is off the hidden path, and definitely worth it.

We went to the zoo and looked this place up online and thought the reviews were decent. I looked up their menu and was excited to try the hash browns. We got there and they said they no longer had them. I was disappointed, but decided to order. The food was ridiculously skimpy and nothing at all as shown in... More

Plain Jane food , way over priced $14plus for plain cheese burger ,fries and sweet tea. Had a hair in my fries. I brought my food back to them and waited about ten minutes to get what I thought was fresh food and they bring me back my half eaten burger and cold fries. The staff needs to review the... More

If you are wanting an old fashioned burger this is a great place to stop. The burgers are really good. The fries are homemade and just as good as the burgers. The restaurant is not very big but a cute little place and if I had to wait for a table its worth it. Wonderful!

My husband and I stopped in for lunch on 3/28/15. The place was packed. Luckily, weree able to orfer and find a table. I knew this place was going to be great, once I smelt the food. Our burgers were simply to die for. Fresh homemade burgers like these are hard to come by. Even the French fries were great!... More

If you're looking for a hamburger and fries that taste like your Mom made it then Dave's is the place to go. A little off the beaten path, but worth the drive. If you're up for the challenge you can try the Zipper Ripper.....check it out on their website.

This is a nice local place not to far of the beaten path. Great burger. No premade patties fresh ingredients and my favorite, a toasted bun. I ordered the jalapeño burger with an onion ring basket combo. The burger was great the onion rings were good but next time I am trying the fries. The burger and onion rings were... More

Waco surprisingly to many who may not know the area is brimming with local burger joints. Many are dives (Cupps, Double R) some are diner (Health Camp) Daves is a newer building and market competitor but is the current champion over the other worthy challengers. Consistently well cooked with high quality meat and excellent buns. I am not a fan... More

Based on reviews here on Trip Advisor, we decided to eat at Dave's Burger Barn last weekend. It is located kind of out of the way on the north side of Waco, next to a neighborhood. It truly is a metal, no frills barn, with limited parking. We were the only ones in the restaurant, so our service was quick... More
