Burger Champions

License plates line the walls of this tiny joint with a simple menu of burgers & classic sides. If you want one of the best burgers, don’t pass through Central Texas without stopping in.

Family-owned and operated, Captain Billy Whizzbang’s in Waco, Texas has been providing the best burger since 1977. The meat is delivered fresh each morning from a local meat market and each hamburger patty is hand-pressed, never frozen, and made to order just how you like. 

Thank you for your votes! Get ready for next year – Heart of Texas Championship Contest is a one-week online March-Madness-style competition for local businesses. The top 8 nominated businesses go into the Elite Eight, then the 4 winners to the Final Four, and the top 2 into the Championship game. Votes are on our social media @moderntexaslivingwaco, and we’re already excited for next year’s championship.
