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

I was reading other reviews and yes I agree they don't have a huge variety but they're Dave's Burger Barn not a full restaurant. The burgers are delicious, service is great and the staff is always friendly. I highly recommend you give Dave's a try and make sure you get the sweet potato fries.

Hamburgers were good. Onion rings ok. Nothing exciting. Not much variety. Ranked pretty high on trip advisor.

I saw it on Facebook and the big burger stack got my attention. I had a 4 x 4 with bacon and was not disappointed. Fresh meat, great taste. Fast and friendly service. Clean environment. Very affordable.

Service not good , food too expensive drinks over $2.00 even to go! Burgers are not good like they were when they first opened. Would not spend my money here again.

These burgers are exactly what you imagine a great burger would be. Nothing fancy, but very satisfying. I just know I wouldn't do well with the "zipper ripper."

The burger was really good and their prices are very reasonable. My biggest complaint is it took forever to get, I waited about 20 to 30 minutes to get my food and I got sweet potatoe fries that were really not that great.
