“An unanticipated delight”

Twisted Root Burger Co
Ranked #6 of 68 Quick Bites in Waco
Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

We decided to get lunch at the Twisted Root after we discovered that our first choice was closed. It turned out to be a great decision as the food was excellent. We all ordered burgers (natch) with a shared order of cheese fries and everyone enjoyed their selection. I had the gosh jam it burger with a waygu patty on the recommendation of the cashier and it proved extremely flavorful. Now if I’m ever in Waco again I know where to go for a delicious meal!

First time here and the food and service were fantastic. It is counter service, but they quickly offered to help bring our larger order to our table. Really, really good food and fun atmosphere.

We went for around 1pm on a saturday, the wait in the food line was about 20 mins, the wait for the food AFTER placing the order was about half an hour. The tables were not cleaned on a regular basis as we say just 1 table get cleaned the entire time we were there. The pickle bar has some nice flavors including a solid dill flavor, an interesting ranch, though our favorite was the sweet and spicy and bread and butter pickles. It is a good thing this pickle bar and the soda refill station were readily available as we were able to keep the hunger at bay by eating pickles, which coincidentally was the best of the food offered. The fries were under cooked, the bacon was over cooked and microwave limp re heated, the fried pickles were underwhelming in flavor and lacked consistency in their coating. At best the food was average tasting, priced at piece meal pricing, if you enjoy paying top dollar for average food, while standing in a long line, then try here, otherwise there are better Twisted Root locations to visit. The ladies bathroom was out of order and the mens had a single working urinal and no working stalls, with dubious sanitation. This is a must skip location, save yourself our mistake, your patience, wallet and stomach will all thank you for over looking what could and should have been a go to location instead of a must skip disappointment.

I just could not believe how long people including us, had to wait for their food and then it was cold. You order your food at counter and they give you an alert item so when food ready you go to counter and pick it up. The place was not really busy. There had to be 6 people, young girls mainly, working at front counter. We could see at least 12 trays of food sitting there prepared and the girls just standing around laughing and not sending out the food. My daughter finally went up and sure enough 2 of those trays were ours. Cheese fries that the melted cheese had gotten so cold again you could pick up the whole tray of food in one piece. My granddaughter took 2 bites of the burger and said she didn't want anymore. We kept watching as this happened over and over. Cost was $47 for 2 burgers and 2 drinks and the cheese fries. I said this is ridiculous and asked for a manager. A key manager came over but she said she couldn't do anything and would have to get a different manager. We just left. It's a shame the place is run so poorly. No one supervising the front to expedite the food. It looked like it could be good if served as soon as prepared but this was a horrible experience and owners/management need to really pay attention because we saw many people walk out because of the food and slow service. Cute place and atmosphere but not worth the trip or money.
