Been seeing this place on the circle since they invented bread. Traveling north this weekend and decided to stop and put in an order. It is a hamburger, no more no less. I would say that it might be a click above average, but wouldn't...More

We relished our cheese burgers, onion rings and that fresh made shake! This place has tons of charm and very welcoming staff. Like a burger joint from the 1950's and indeed it is!

Variety of malts/shakes is why we still stop here along with 35 years of tradition. Location on the circle and old-style look keep alumni coming back

Usually a great fresh burger. The bun was cold and the meat was a bit chewy. They were very busy so I think our food was rushed through. The fries were hot and very good. Will wait awhile before we go back.

My family ate here for lunch while driving through Waco. Health Camp is a part of Waco history. I think the nostalgia of it is the main reason people eat here. The burgers and hot dog we had were good, fresh and served quickly. The...More

This is my kind of health camp! Greasy burgers and fries and tots and shakes done right!!! The burgers were some of the best old time diner burgers I've had in a long time. Great flavor and nicely done. Even the lettuce and tomato were...More

What a neat place to visit and eat. Definitely 50's diner vibe; place has been in business forever evidently. Photos on the wall look like Waco grew up around it. I ordered the Cheeseburger and fries and a chocolate malt and swear I was transported...More
