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.

Great priced and very great food! Just a plain bacon cheeseburger is much better than any place in town! Highly recommend! Also very close to the baylor campus! Breakfast is awesome and cooked on a large griddle! All beef is delivered fresh daily, so you dont have to worry about old tasting meat!

Cupp's Drive Inn has been in Waco since 1947. I went to Cupp's growing up and wanted to take my husband there to eat. I forewarned him it was not a typical burger joint, but a good old fashioned greasy spoon drive inn with great burgers. Health conscience people not need to visit. The special of the day was $5.99...

My friend took me there for the first time and it was delicious. It reminds me of cooking burgers on the grill at home.

The hamburgers harken back to a by gone era and the clientele range from a businessman in a suit to a laborer in coveralls. All here for an old fashioned meal.

I have eaten at Cupps for 40 years. It has not changed. They still make a great burger with all the fixin's. I think it is still owned by the same family. This is definately not a "cloth napkin", but a classic small diner that serves good food does not cost an arm and leg.
