My wife & I were in Waco to see the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum. I have been stopping to eat at the Health Camp for 52 years! This was a great place to dine when I was an 18 year-old college freshman. Now, I am 70 and keep coming back every time I am in Waco. Our... More

This is just a vintage diner with good food. Nothing high brow about it, just good burgers and Big Red soda on the fountain. Fries better than the onion rings.

In what looks like an old Dairy Queen building, is Health Camp. Next to Rudy's and Elite Diner on the circle or loop sits Health Camp. I had #1 Super Combo wit onion rings and a chocolate malt and it was $12. Kinda high but very good. The onion rings are not homemade. Double Cheeseburger is a great hamburger.

This is a great place for young families with kids and college students. The prices are very affordable and the food is good and filling. You must have a milk shake if you stop by. The burgers and rings are good as well. There are many different combinations for shakes. Be sure to take the time to read the menu.

Average bugger and fries. Was told they were the best, so my friend owes me a good burger and fries. Don't think I'll be going back.

Average food, nice wait staff, good value for your money, A Waco ICON, but don't let the name fool you. This is a burger, fries and greasy food joint.
