You'd swear Norman Rockwell ate here!

Oma's Jiffy Burger is one of my favorite haunts in all of Texas. Located in the Mayberry-esque setting a stone's throw from the enchanting Ellis County Courthouse. OJB is a Waxahachie Institution that has been around 40+ years and houses a grill which has been around much longer (from another... read more

If you are eating downtown Waxahachie this one is the place to dine, voted one of the best hamburgers in the State of Texas! It's worth the drive folks, just pull off I-35 and don't forget to visit all of the hundreds of other antique and specialty stores!

Very good but small hamburgers. They don't have fries, so you have to be happy with a bag of chips. Get the double or you will be disappointed. All the locals eat at Oma's and it is well know in town.

There are many different types of great hamburgers. Oma's has more of a "slider" type hamburger. Not the new sliders that all of the bars in America are starting to sell...but a good old fashioned White Castle slider...only slightly larger. Thin meat. I stacked mine 3 high. If you don't go with at least a double you will get a... More

Been eating Oma's since I was knee high to a grasshopper and just like years ago, it's still one of the BEST burgers I've ever eaten. These things are super tiny, but pack an incredible punch of flavor. I like the simplicity of what they do here. They use the "KISS" theory and do it well. Keep up the good... More

It's been nearly 30 years between trips to Oma's but still is much the same. They have added covered outside seating which is pretty cool. Many of the negative reviews seem to come from perceptions. If you come to Oma's looking for gourmet burgers, pack up and turn around. This is an old established burger joint. A seasoned grill, bottled... More

I love the atmosphere. The burgers are handmade fresh on the grill while you check out. I love going to this little gem. Good food don't miss out.

not clean. not good food. no fountain drinks. average would be an improvement. I know the chain burger places aren't that good, but they could teach Oma's lessons on "quality"

Everything is fresh and daily prepared. Choices are hamburger and cheeseburger... Prefer the 2 or 3 patty ones as try are small and tinny. Very simple place, you'll get your burger wrapped in a paper, and your choice o drink... Don't expect more than small delicious homemade burgers... If you prefer to eat burger, this is the place to go...
