Small, but so good. I prefer to sit at the bar where you can watch the ballet of cook and waitress in the narrow space between the bar and the stove. Got the bacon cheeseburger last time, and saw that the bacon gets an initial round in the french fry basket before being transferred to the grill. Man, it works.... More

One of the best classic burgers around. If you are looking for an outstanding classic, look no further. You will fall in love with Cupps. Also don't miss out on the onion rings or Chicken Fried Steak sandwich.

I am a Waco native and this place still rocks after over 50 years. Price is kinda high , so look for coupons. Food is great.

Old school burger joint. The food was delicious. Hot and made right in front of you. The seating is limited. They were friendly and attentive. The place was well kept to be as old as it is. Step back in time and give this place a try. It is right off the interstate.

The wife and I were out running errands so we stopped in for lunch. It had been a long time since our last visit. As a kid, I worked there and it was always busy. We had Cheeseburger baskets and cold drinks. Juicy and good is all I can say...

This is a great old burger joint that will take you back to the good old days. Why stop? because it is like none other. Even has the counter seats to make you feel like when it opened.

My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous cheeseburger and fries at Cupp's. It is like an old fashioned "hole in the wall" eatery.The burgers are real meat with fresh veggies and melting cheese. The fries are delicious and not overly salted. They also have breakfast with a special from 8:30 to 11:00 It is two eggs any style, hash browns,... More

Per TripAdvisor, we stopped in on our way to San Antonio. Yes, old and 'hole in the wall', but fabulous old time hamburgers, fries and atmosphere! Inexpensive too. My husband got a double burger with double pepper jack basket and was so impressed we returned for more burgers & fries on our trip home. FYI: the bathroom is around back... More

Cupp's has been a landmark in Waco, Tx for many years. Good ole' greasy hamburgers and homemade fries. They also have a good breakfast. Limited seating so go before or after lunch run.
