Old style Burgers!

This is a great old burger joint that will take you back to the good old days. Why stop? because it is like none other. Even has the counter seats to make you feel like when it opened.

My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous cheeseburger and fries at Cupp's. It is like an old fashioned "hole in the wall" eatery.The burgers are real meat with fresh veggies and melting cheese. The fries are delicious and not overly salted. They also have breakfast with a special from 8:30 to 11:00 It is two eggs any style, hash browns,... More

Per TripAdvisor, we stopped in on our way to San Antonio. Yes, old and 'hole in the wall', but fabulous old time hamburgers, fries and atmosphere! Inexpensive too. My husband got a double burger with double pepper jack basket and was so impressed we returned for more burgers & fries on our trip home. FYI: the bathroom is around back... More

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.

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
