Old Fashion Goodness

Cupp's has been a landmark in Waco, Tx for many years. Good ole' greasy hamburgers and homemade fries. They also have a good breakfast. Limited seating so go before or after lunch run.

I enjoyed visiting this place, with only 9 stools at the original counter, and 4 or 5 booths. It does have outdoor seating if the weather is right for it. The hamburgers are not large, but they are very solid old fashioned hamburgers, including the hand sliced onion, tomato, and iceberg lettuce. Then they the hamburger all together and wrap... More

Cupp's has been around forever and the aging of their grill must make the difference. Few places can make a burger taste so good.

Understand this: I don't need 100 characters to tell you how wonderful these burgers are. Greasy Perfection.

Went with my family and we were lucky to find a place to sit. It appeared to be a basic greasy spoon, but I had a When Harry Met Sally moment when I took that first bite of cheeseburger! We have not grilled burgers at home since eating here, what's the point? They will never Hit the spot like Cupp's.

Great Old Fashion Hamburgers and SUPER SUPER onion rings that are dipped before you. Try their chicken fried steak also dipped in front of you. This is an old car hop cafe that no longer has car hops and you would expect to see the entrance with an old screen door with a Mrs. Baird or Rainbow bread ad on... More

Eaten at Cupp's many times for breakfast. Love it. Ain't fancy. The place is tiny and very back in the day. Everything on the breakfast menu is just like momma made. Very friendly people take care of you as well.

Great sirloin burgers. I like the grilled steak sandwich with grilled onions. Home-cut fries and ice-cold tea/sodas!

I hesitate to call it a Waco place, since I didn't really know about it until I was at Baylor. Still, they have good burgers and a good atmosphere. The woman working the counter when I went was very friendly and helpful in ordering. I will say that I wish I had asked for no mustard, but that's just me.... More

This a very small old joint but you know what they say the little hole in the walls are usually the best and in this case that's very true. The place is very small but LOTS of character. Been there since 1947. We sat at the bar area so the kitchen is right in front of you. The cook and... More
