Dinner at end of our CO trip

Grabbed burgers, chicken strips and fries for dinner. Homemade chips are pretty good (too thin for my preference). Burger was good not great as we had better on our travels. Overall, a good quiet place to grab some grub.

Service was great and food was really good. I ate until I could not eat any more then took the rest home. There was a lot of food for the money.

Great little hole in the wall restaurant. One of the best hamburgers I've had in a very long time. Luckily we arrived a little early because it got super busy while we were there. The clientele was a good mix from young couples to families and even some ladies from the homestead. Next time I'm driving to Austin I will... More

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
