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!

David's is a great place for a burger and fries. The menu is very basic, similar to a Five Guys or In-N-Out, although the food is better tasting. :) It's a family-owned business, and you can tell the employers care about the experience.

I've always found the staff to be friendly and very helpful. On a recent visit, I got up to get a refill from the self-serve soda station, and one of the servers ran over and offered to get the drink for me. The burger and fries are top-notch, but the staff really makes this place special.

I've been here for lunch with colleagues and for dinner with my family. It's a family-friendly place, with fun oldies playing on the jukebox. The servers come around from time to time with refills for your fries.

It has very easy access from I-40 and US Highway 67-167. I highly recommend this place for locals or travelers!

This David's location has changed up their ordering methodology. Now, when you enter, you have to order and pay. Not a bad system, but the Menu hanging up is too large and you cannot read it very well.
Service and food was good. However, I did learn to make sure to let the server take your empty plate. DO NOT try to hold on to it, or even decline with a nice 'no thank you'.

Was greeted with a big welcome as we entered the restaurant. Ordering was simple and the food came quickly. My only complaint was our waitress. She greeted us when we were seated and that was pretty much it. She came by for refills after hubby had already gone for himself. She asked us if we would like a complimentary chocolate shake sample. Of course, we agreed, but she never returned. She was friends with the table next to ours. She brought them a side of fries as an appetizer before their meal arrived. She sat and visited with them and made sure they were well taken care of. Needless to say, she didn't get a big tip from us :-( Burgers and fries were good. My 8 yr old really enjoyed the burger and hes pretty picky. Will be back!

Love David's Burgers. Great big greasy tasty Burgs! Has a sort of 5 guys feel to it. When we sat the waitress brought us fries immediately even before we ordered. Small menu but you dont need much when you do just burgs. Service was great and food was excellent. Will return soon.

Great place for burgers. Free "appetizer" fries while you wait for your order. Fast friendly service. Easy access from I40.
Fries are from actual potatoes, burgers are fried so just a bit greasy. Standard lettuce and tomatoes, plus mushrooms and other toppings.
If you like 50's style burger dining including the ice cream floats, this is the place for you.
Super big parking for those of us who are travelling with a uhaul and car attached!
