This is a Waxahachie favorite. Not sure how long it has been there but it will still be there, I'm sure, years from now. Very small, looks like it used to be a little lunch place. A few booths and a counter with old stools. The local High School provides most of the décor. A patio was added a couple of years ago and has made it easier to get in there at lunch time.

The burgers are wonderful, thanks to the old, well seasoned flat grill they are cooked on. It is the original grill. You can order your burger with 1,2,or 3 patties. The patties are about 3 inches round. I know that sounds awfully small but get the 2 or 3 pattie one and you will get full. You can get the usual add-ons. They do not have fries. There's no room for a fryer! They have a selection of chips. They have a few breakfast sandwiches, frito pie. Pies. It's all good! And it's fun, too. It's a good mix of people, just about all locals. It's like having lunch at a friends house. Oh, and did I mention....those little burgers are AMAZING!!! Oh, try to get there a bit before noon or 20-30 minutes after. Parking is a bear.

Found this place by luck, and then read the reviews after we ate there. The burgers were really fresh and tasty. They come in multiple sizes (more patties) so you can eat as much or as little as you want. We were driving to Austin, so the single was just perfect to eat during a long road trip. Next time it will be a burger and a frito pie.

Best burgers in North Central Texas. Small but constantly busy. Quaint and homey atmosphere. You must eat here at least once. Bet you can't.

Oma's has the best little burger you'll find for several miles around. They have been in business for a very long time and have recently opened an additional location. They make their burger on the same grill they have used for ever. I've been going since I was a kid and there was nothing like finishing a burger and wadding up the white paper it's wrapped. Now-a-days I tend to wad up several papers. They also have great breakfast taquitos called Omittas. This place is a must try and enjoy an original Coke with your order. It completes the package.
