Description: Though the name David’s Burgers may be a fairly new name to you, it’s actually rooted in a deep family history of restauranteurs, tradition and craftsmanship. David Alan Bubbus created David’s Burgers as a tribute to his father, David Bubbus Sr., who had become a master butcher at the age of sixteen. Mr. Bubbus Sr. grew up in Central Arkansas and began his career in the meat industry at the age of five working for Johnny Jacobs Meat Market in North Little Rock. He managed his first restaurant, the JaMar in Pine Bluff, at the age of nineteen in 1963 and opened his own restaurant, El Matador, in Pine Bluff, Arkansas in1967. For over half a century, Mr. Bubbus Sr. has been instrumental in developing numerous restaurants, restaurant chains and even franchises (such as Chicken Country) throughout Arkansas while bringing his knowledge, passion and insistence of quality to the plates of millions of patrons. David Bubbus Sr. is the Butcher Boy.David’s Burgers is founded on the knowledge and principles of David Bubbus Sr. along with the traditions and craftsmanship found in master butcher shops. The black and white pictures you see on the walls are our family pictures. They’re our way of welcoming you into our home and we hope they will take you back to a time when things were simple and straightforward, which is what we’re all about. We are the only hamburger restaurant with beef that is handcut from US Choice Chuck and ground for that days use. You can see our US Choice Chuck displayed proudly in a nostalgic butcher case at our entrance. We never include trimmings, fillers or other inferior beef by-products. The foundation of our traditional hamburger is simply incredible beef with the highest standard of quality control. Our fries are hand cut potatoes made fresh throughout the day. There’s an amazing amount of passion and detail that goes into our food. It’s our hope that you have an extraordinary experience with excellent service and we sincerely thank you for being our guest!

50's style diner, complete with tables, chairs and music from the 50's. The burger was amazing and the service was fast and friendly. This is a family owned restaurant, not a run of the mill chain and it shows!! Loved this place and will definitely go back!!!

“Amazing burgers!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

One of the best burger joints around. You skip out on the Davids sauce, it's just mayo, pickle juice, and possibly ketchup, however everything else was exceptional! Waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. The service was quick, def going back again in the near future!

“Does not live up to the reviews”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

The meat in this burger is just ok when compared to burgers in the Rio Grand Valley. The biggest problem with this burger in my opinion is the cheap bun that it is on.
The handcut french fries are absolutely fabulous and the milkshake was really good!!

“My favorite restaurant when I come home for a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

A stop at David's Burgers is one of the things I look forward to when I come home to visit my family.

The burgers are excellent, service is fantastic, and the prices are very fair.

Today's visit was wonderful. We walked in and were seated immediately. Within seconds, there was a plate of hot French Fries at our table.

Our server, Linda, was fantastic. She really made the visit even more enjoyable, and we wish her the best of luck with her studies and her upcoming marriage. She made sure we had everything we needed, and even though she was busy, she made us feel like we were the only table in her section.

The food was served promptly, and was excellent. My burger was exactly as I like it, my dad had the steak and it looked very good. I didn't ask to take a taste.. probably would have been stabbed in the hand by a fork.

We had a little taste of the butter pecan ice cream, and I don't remember when I had butter pecan ice cream with that many pecans in it.

I hope to visit here again, before I had back to cold country in a week.

The restaurant was filling up fast as we left...

Take the time and visit Dave's, but don't do it during rush hour... it fills up fast.
