On September 28, 2009, Dave's Burger Barn was founded by Cindy and David Hammons in Waco, Texas. Dave's vision of having a burger joint near local high schools and college campuses came during his college time at T.S.T.I. Mr. and Mrs. Hammons have both lived in the surrounding area for over 30 years and are proud supporters of the city of Lacy Lakeview. The two of them combined have more than 25 years of restaurant experience.
On January 2, 2010 Cindy's son, Tim Quiroz, was added as a partner. Mr. Quiroz brings his business knowledge, which he obtained at Baylor University and at The University of Texas at San Antonio. His restaurant experience came throughout his working days in college. Mr. Quiroz's passion for food began from childhood through his grandmother Viola Hinojosa, who ran and owned a restaurant in Elm Mott, Texas for several years.
Our business philosophy is simple: "Serve customers the freshest, richest quality of foods possible, while maintaining a sparkling clean environment and providing unforgettable friendly service." Due to their philosophy and principles, success has come much faster than expected.
Our commitment to quality begins with our food. All of our menu items are made fresh to order, with 100% all beef or chicken. They are free of additives, fillers and preservatives of any kind. What makes us stand apart from local competitors, is that all of our meats and poultry is fresh. None of our meat ever enters a freezer. Each hamburger pattie is made by hand. We pay a premium to purchase fresh, high quality beef chuck. We also individually inspect every beef chuck tube that we receive to ensure that it meets our standards. We’ve always made our hamburger patties this way.
Our commitment to quality doesn't stop there. All of the buns and breads that we use throughout the day are hand selected every morning before the restaurant opens. This ensures freshness and softness of every sandwich that goes out to order.
The same goes for our other ingredients. Our American cheese is the real thing. The chili is made fresh with all natural ingredients and beefs. All of our plumb tomatoes are hand picked and delivered from local produce distributors. Even the lettuce and onions are picked daily to guarantee the highest of quality and taste throughout the entire meal.
We make every sandwich one at a time, cooked fresh to order.
