Waco surprisingly to many who may not know the area is brimming with local burger joints. Many are dives (Cupps, Double R) some are diner (Health Camp) Daves is a newer building and market competitor but is the current champion over the other worthy challengers....More

Dave's has a little better than the average burger, but the homemade potato chips are awesome! Friendly staff and adequate service.

We have been going to Dave's since they first opened. We love the food and the atmosphere. We normally just get our food to go, but every once in a while we'll eat inside...honestly it's to watch people do the Zipper Ripper Challenge. Those are...More

Dave's Burger Barn has good (but not great) cheeseburgers. Having said that, I would hands down choose Dave's over any of the local fast food chain burgers. Prices are kinda steep considering it's a burger joint. I could take the family to a sit-down restaurant...More

I really have no complaints over the food, but find it a bit pricy for just basic burgers. Add french fries and drink it's way over the top for a place to go on a regular basis.

I live right down the street from Dave's, so I'll be coming here a lot. The food is excellent. Had a delicious bacon cheeseburger before taking the "ZipperRipper" Challenge. 5 patties, 5 strips of bacon, and 5 slices of cheese. Eat it in under 12...More

Dave's burger barn is really good with service, friendliness, and food. There burgers are the best but they have other things to. I plan to come back many more times.

I was sort of let down by this place, especially after all of the reviews. Guess you can not win them all! It is really just a metal building with a concrete floor, not much else. They do serve Blue Bell so that was a...More

Although they may not allow dogs, is a park right outside the restaurant. I have only been there once, but the park seemed very clean and the restaurant is nicely located just on the other side of the fence. You can order... More
