Gut pack

Really a hang out for the young group but us old coots enjoyed it. I went to school at WHS with Dickie or Dickey Vitek. I was just guessing that it was his family when we went.

Most overrated place to eat in Waco. I have lived in Waco for 21 years, and I do not know one person that actually comes here to eat for ribs or brisket. I even saw that their ribs were wrapped in plastic wrap. Rudy's is the place to go for brisket in Waco.

This used to be the best bbq in town! The gut pack and a big red would be the most amazing lunch ever. Homemade sausage has changed it seems more spicy then before. Will try again to see if it's just me or was a off day.

If you're looking for good BBQ in Waco you will have MANY options. This is a good place to go, very clean, very well managed, but not above average food. I've been there several times and it's consistent. It is good, but not the best.

I had the brisket Taco and coleslaw when dining here. I thought it was good, but fell a bit below my high expectations after the build up someone had given me. I still would go back to eat there again!

I guess you can call Vitek's a Sports Bar, they have TVs and sell beer, but that's not what comes to mind first. It is the "Gut Pack", their own invention that has won national Food channel awards. They are right on I-35 in Waco and you have to stop there if you are coming through anytime close to a... More

Come to Waco from anywhere in the country and set your GPS to take you to Vitek's! The BBQ menu will have your mouth watering, but the GUTPACK is your order if you want to experience decades of BU tradition. It is amazing and filling before going to the game. It's just off campus and 5 min to McLane Stadium... More

When in the area of Waco, Texas - Vitek's is one of those family owned and operated establishments. Best BBQ ! The "GUT PACK" to die for. It's a combustion for meat, beans, cheese, onions, and whatever suits you taste buds the day you visit. You can chow down on sandwiches, lunch platters and they will cater a great event... More

I had the gut pack while I was there. It was a mixture of BBQ classics and Fritos. The crunch and flavor of it all made me clean my plate. Great BBQ and atmosphere. They are right off of I35 so it's easy to get to. They filled me up and have reasonable prices

Locally owned and operated....it's a Waco standard. I'm on a pretty strict diet but was able to eat a smoked turkey salad that was amazing. Everyone else enjoyed their BBQ. If you're in Waco and want BBQ, go here.
