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

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.
