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.

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.

Old school burger joint. The food was delicious. Hot and made right in front of you. The seating is limited. They were friendly and attentive. The place was well kept to be as old as it is. Step back in time and give this place a try. It is right off the interstate.

The wife and I were out running errands so we stopped in for lunch. It had been a long time since our last visit. As a kid, I worked there and it was always busy. We had Cheeseburger baskets and cold drinks. Juicy and good is all I can say...

This is a great old burger joint that will take you back to the good old days. Why stop? because it is like none other. Even has the counter seats to make you feel like when it opened.
