Wife and I asked hotel manager where to grab a good quick bite to eat and he recommended this place. We were not disappointed. I ordered the gut pak and it was awesome. We went back the next day for lunch and I got a poboy, it too was excellent.

We went with a group from work and the wait was not very long, even at peak lunch time. The food was very good, limited selection but everything that was ordered was enjoyed by all.

I will say that the restaurant is nice, clean and had lots of seating. When ordering I didn't get a very welcome... More

Great barbecue--enjoyed the special Gut Pak( A type of Frito pie with chopped beef, sausage, onions, cheese, beans, jalapenos and more) as well as the sliced beef, sliced ham and great macaroni and cheese.

Stopped @ Vitek's, a college haunt, for quick lunch en route home to DFW. While the setting is far fancier than co-ed days, food & smiling young employees didn't disappoint. My chopped with a slice of cheddar (presumably the way Coach Grant Teaff has his) gets an A+ for consistent Throwback Memories--even if flat-screen TVs (& bars) seem OuttaSchool! Nor... More

Known for the tasty Gutpak, this is a fun place to visit. The staff provides service with a smile and it is a great place to watch all sports events:-) If you are on Interstate 35, it is worth the stop. The homemade sausage is outstanding and the servings are plentiful. Give a try:-)

Waco tradition. Gut pack. OMG. The restaurant expanded tremendously a few years ago and the seating is nice indoor and outdoor. But go for the gut pack.
