Amazing food!

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... read 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

Dave's has a little better than the average burger, but the homemade potato chips are awesome! Friendly staff and adequate service.

We have been going to Dave's since they first opened. We love the food and the atmosphere. We normally just get our food to go, but every once in a while we'll eat inside...honestly it's to watch people do the Zipper Ripper Challenge. Those are SO much fun to watch. The staff is so friendly. I can't think of anything... More

Dave's Burger Barn has good (but not great) cheeseburgers. Having said that, I would hands down choose Dave's over any of the local fast food chain burgers. Prices are kinda steep considering it's a burger joint. I could take the family to a sit-down restaurant for about the same price.

I really have no complaints over the food, but find it a bit pricy for just basic burgers. Add french fries and drink it's way over the top for a place to go on a regular basis.

I live right down the street from Dave's, so I'll be coming here a lot. The food is excellent. Had a delicious bacon cheeseburger before taking the "ZipperRipper" Challenge. 5 patties, 5 strips of bacon, and 5 slices of cheese. Eat it in under 12 mins, IT'S FREE! Also they offer WiFi to their customers which, as a college student... More
