On our way through from Dallas, we were looking a place to eat. I wanted something different than just the same old fast food restaurants(wendy's, whataburger, Mcdonalds). So, I googled best burgers in Waco and Dave's was listed on top, and for good reason. I ordered a double meat cheese burger with the homemade chips. The burger was fresh, hot... More

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
