Dave's Burgers was and excellent place to grab a burger the first year they opened. They have either taken that for granted or they just don't care anymore! Over the past two months I have ordered hamburgers and homemade chips one order fries to go, most recently December 30, 2015. I had to repeat my order three times to person... More

We read great reviews, but when we pulled up at 7:30 on a Sunday evening, there were absolutely no customers and we weren't too sure if we were in a safe neighborhood, so we almost left. We decided to take a chance since we would have had to go out of our way to eat somewhere else and the reviews... More

We were in the mood for burgers on our trip to Kansas and found Dave's wasn't too far off I35 so decided to give them a try. The place is set up like a small diner, order at the counter. The staff was really super accommodating. The burgers are delicious! We had the sweet potato fries, which were probably the... More

We have been here several times and the burgers are delicious. The French fries and onion rings are another matter. I usually get onion rings but have had battered paper (an outer layer ring that is onion on one side and thin layer of skin on the other) and a basket where half are perfect and the other half are...

Dave's does a great job for "Saturday lunch burgers", old grill style. It is not far off I-35, and is worth a side trip to find it.

Burgers are good, but their homemade chips are outstanding a little greasy but good. Roomy dining room, down home atmosphere, causal dining.

Went because the reviews were good and it is easy to find just minutes from I35. Everything is very neat with friendly service and our burgers were good. Mine was a hamburger with avocado added and having a large serving of sweet potatoe fries. My spouse's double meat cheeseburger was served with very thick cut onion rings. We both were... More

This is not a fine dining place. The food, though, is incredible. This is the place the local law eats. I've been there several times and I've never been disappointed. This is THE burger place in Waco. Be warned...this is not a place to go if you like dressing up and getting waited on hand and foot. Parking is also... More
