My husband went to Baylor back in the day and has never stopped bragging about these fries. I am not a French Fry lover myself BUT I did not want to share these!

This place has been around since 1974. I went to college in Waco 20+ years ago and never really knew of this place. My girlfriend heard of this hole in the wall restaurant and said we had to try it.

This is a small Mom and Pop restaurant. We eat the burgers and oriental fries. I get a LIP LOCKER burger with oriental fries and tea. Dining area is small (old house). The service and food are good. If you go you have to get the Oriental Fries.

This place is what every burger joint in Austin dreams of being. The cheeseburger is well worth the drive. This family run restaurant is a must stop every time we are in Waco TX.

Korean food and burgers? You bet. The Oriental fries (potato, carrot, etc.) are great. Not in the center of things, and a bit out of the way, but so worth the drive.

A family-owned Korean restaurant and everything is wonderful. They also serve great burgers and the oriental fries are the bomb!

Certainly enjoyed the hole in the wall atmosphere and the food but not the best in town nor even close. Go enjoy the experience but I think if you going with a little lower expectation you might be better off. The vegetable fries were good.

It might not look like much but it has some of the best burgers in town. You can go and get a drink and a double lip locker cheese burger for less then $10. Would go with several girls from school and share a order of oriental fries.
