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.

We stopped by Cupp's on are way to Austin, TX. Really old school with a small counter and 6 booths. Lunch time is very busy. Good burger and fries. Worth a visit!

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.

Cupps is a classic greasy spoon for the best burgers ever. I have been going for 50 years. Best onion rings ever. Not re-constituted onion but real onions with real flaky crust. It is greasy but it is why I go. I order two cheeseburgers every time with double tomatoes in an effort to make it a little healthy. Building... More

Cupp's is a very old worn out little building. But the hamburgers are just like they used to be made. Personally I like a greasse hamburger. If that is what you like then this place is for you. It is just a block and a half from Super 8.
