Small mom and pop place a lil off the beaten path . Ordered a double jalapeno cheesburger basket. Food came out fairly quickly and was nice and hot! Fries were homecut but were fairly average. The burger was solid though with thin patties and fresh grilled japs. I would recommend Daves if you are in the Waco area.

I had the bacon cheeseburger, what I love about Daves is that every this is fresh and home made. My burger was great as well as the fresh made French fries. If you want a delicious home made burger I would definitely recommend Dave's burger barn over any other place!

Quick & casual place with delicious burgers. I had the Jalapeño Cheeseburger which was loaded with fresh cut Jalapeños and definitely had a kick! Fries could have been better, but other than that a great place!

On our way back to Dallas and wanted to have a quick Burger Joint for the trip home. Found Dave's Burger via Tripvisor. Dave's have very Juicy Burgers (i hate dry burgers) and Fresh Fries and Homestyle Potato Chips. Will definitely stop by Waco for Dave's on our next trip to Austin or San Antonio.

I got a chilli cheese burger not on the menu but was recommended by the very friendly guy behind the counter. Unfortunately they brought me a chilli cheese dog and the girl gave me a nasty attitude when I apologized for the misunderstanding even tho it was their error. She was rude when she brought the burger out to me... More

I was reading other reviews and yes I agree they don't have a huge variety but they're Dave's Burger Barn not a full restaurant. The burgers are delicious, service is great and the staff is always friendly. I highly recommend you give Dave's a try and make sure you get the sweet potato fries.

Hamburgers were good. Onion rings ok. Nothing exciting. Not much variety. Ranked pretty high on trip advisor.

I saw it on Facebook and the big burger stack got my attention. I had a 4 x 4 with bacon and was not disappointed. Fresh meat, great taste. Fast and friendly service. Clean environment. Very affordable.
