I have been going to this burger/fries place for 55 years, and have never been disappointed. The fries are cut fresh, never frozen, and the burger is so old fashioned it brings back good memories.

We were searching for a local type place in Waco to eat. We've never considered This town as a great place to eat. It's gotten lots more chain type eateries as of late. Searching through Trip Advisor we found Cupp's and decided to give it a try. This is definitely a local joint. The actual restaurant is more of a... More

We saw this in advisors and were really curious if it was as good as the reviews. It did not disappoint...from Burgers (really tasty bacon) to the chicken fried steak...and great onion rings. We will definitely make this as a stop coming through Waco for now on.

Breakfast or lunch cooked right in front of you by the owners and their family for generations. Skip the corporate this time and try Cupp's when in Waco

The reviews are right. We had the single bacon cheese burgers and onion rings. How big is that burger? You might want them to cut it in half. The onion rings were big, crunchy and delicious. If there are no seats you can get it to go. We will be back.

Great home cooked hamburgers, onion rings and fries. Very limited inside space but nice outdoors area to eat.

Small, but so good. I prefer to sit at the bar where you can watch the ballet of cook and waitress in the narrow space between the bar and the stove. Got the bacon cheeseburger last time, and saw that the bacon gets an initial round in the french fry basket before being transferred to the grill. Man, it works.... More

One of the best classic burgers around. If you are looking for an outstanding classic, look no further. You will fall in love with Cupps. Also don't miss out on the onion rings or Chicken Fried Steak sandwich.

I am a Waco native and this place still rocks after over 50 years. Price is kinda high , so look for coupons. Food is great.
