I absolutely love this place. It is a very small building, which leads to a sometimes longer wait for a table, but believe me it is worth it. The people are very friendly and if you think you got what it takes you can try the zipper ripper challenge. Always a great place for lunch.

Been looking for a great burger that I could grab on a short lunch break. If you get there in time then you shouldn't have to wait because they're fast but if you show up at lunch then you'll probably have to wait in line. The cheeseburger is great and the sweet potato fries aren't bad either. Not too expensive... More

We like to search for small places when we visit close by towns. We decided to try this cute little place. The food was good. I got the blt and it was perfect. Every where I go in always get a blt with the bread to hard and same with the bacon. But this one was spot one. My kids... More

Some of the best food in the Waco area,especially the burgers, and we have many burger joints in our town. The most fresh, best tasting ingredients used. Try it, you'll like anything offered on the menu. A little out of the way for Wacoans, but every bit worth a few more minutes drive from North Waco. We love it. LW,... More

Small mom and pop place a lil off the beaten path . Ordered a double jalapeno cheesburger basket. Food came out fairly quickly and was nice and hot! Fries were homecut but were fairly average. The burger was solid though with thin patties and fresh grilled japs. I would recommend Daves if you are in the Waco area.

I had the bacon cheeseburger, what I love about Daves is that every this is fresh and home made. My burger was great as well as the fresh made French fries. If you want a delicious home made burger I would definitely recommend Dave's burger barn over any other place!

Quick & casual place with delicious burgers. I had the Jalapeño Cheeseburger which was loaded with fresh cut Jalapeños and definitely had a kick! Fries could have been better, but other than that a great place!

On our way back to Dallas and wanted to have a quick Burger Joint for the trip home. Found Dave's Burger via Tripvisor. Dave's have very Juicy Burgers (i hate dry burgers) and Fresh Fries and Homestyle Potato Chips. Will definitely stop by Waco for Dave's on our next trip to Austin or San Antonio.

I got a chilli cheese burger not on the menu but was recommended by the very friendly guy behind the counter. Unfortunately they brought me a chilli cheese dog and the girl gave me a nasty attitude when I apologized for the misunderstanding even tho it was their error. She was rude when she brought the burger out to me... More
