Dave's Burger Barn was a good place to get a good hamburger with fries or onion rings. Blue Bell ice cream was available also. The only noteworthy thing about the restaurant was the Zipper Ripper Challenge--a giant bacon cheeseburger with a pound of french fries...More

Great burger joint! Onion rings were delicious! Give order at counter and then they bring to table. Ingredients were super fresh. Would go out of our way to eat there again.

I would actually give this place 4 3/4 stars. We had good cheeseburgers and onion rings. They weren't the very best we have ever had, but a million times better than chain restaurant burgers. (The best place has better buns, but that's the only reason...More

The jalapeno cheese burger with an egg on top was great. The jalapenos we're fresh ones and hot. Their homemade chips were great, but had sugar instead of salt. Surprising good. Definitely come back. BYOB.

An unassuming building. But inside are good burgers and friendly staff. The service is quick, and the eating area is clean. Stop by and support a local business!

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....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
