Dave's serves a decent hamburger, if you order correctly. The patty is pretty thin, appearing to be fresh, not frozen. Fixings were fresh. As I ordered at the counter, I could see the completed burgers, so I ordered a double meat, which I recommend if you want the meat to vegetable ratio to be in balance. Mrs. 4gen had the single burger. To be fair, at $3.49 for a hamburger, one cannot expect a large patty, while the double meat cheeseburger was $5.59, a bit expensive considering they were just adding one extra thin patty and cheese. If you want fries and a drink other than water, go with the basket, as a very small side of fries is $1.99 and drinks are almost $2. Dave's is housed in a metal building with concrete floors, which makes for a VERY noisy environment; don't expect much conversation unless you can talk louder than everyone else. The place was clean and the counter help was friendly though hurried as the place was busy. We made a detour in our travels to try Dave's, but wouldn't do it again.

On a recent trip to Waco I ate at Dave’s based on it Trip Advisor reviews. I was disappointed. The burgers looked nothing like the photos on this site. The person taking our order was neither friendly nor welcoming. The atmosphere is plain and cold in a tin building. The burger was no better than average, tasteless and thin. Don’t be fooled by the 5 star reviews.

Excellent hamburgers, awesome homemade chips, crisp fries. Football on 3 screens and friendly staff, my 12 year old was evaluating the zipper ripper and decided after his single patty bacon cheeseburger that it's a feat he doesn't want to conquer until adulthood. This may become our new "after football game" hang out on Saturdays. Thanks for a great experience.

GREAT burgers, great fries, great shakes!!! One day one of us will try to beat the Zipper Ripper!!! You can't go wrong with a stop @ Dave's!!! It's been a while since we have come up there so we are due for a visit again!!
