Perfect diner experience

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

This is a great hamburger and chicken fried steak place. Small and unadvertised, it was several years before I even heard about it after moving here 30 years ago. Pick your times because there are only a few booths but the food is wonderful and worth any wait you might have to be seated. Breakfasts are great, too.

Since 1947 this little burger joint has been serving up the burgers, fries and onion rings. We stopped in to check it out on june 28th 2014 and it exceeded my expectations! If the place was a little larger I would have gave it the full 5 rating but the food more than makes up for the space. food was... More
