Total Dispair

Drove 150 miles thru snow and ice to pull into this drive way. Lord, what a disappointment, didn't like the sausage, the brisket and or the potato salad. Who, who in the world serves onion chopped up. My bumper will never be found in this parking lot again. And the price was a little on the... read more

Three very small orders $25 Dry brisket. The "gutpack" is just meat sauce poured on fritos. The new trendy location is not at all like the old white walled store. Just awfull.

I am usually pretty critical about BBQ! This place has got it all! As soon as you step out of your car, you smell the pitt smoke! Really cool atmosphere! A walk up and order type place with a simple menu of really good food from sausage wrap to BBQ baked taters, and humongous sandwiches! And priced right! I-35 Exit... More

Price was right and portion size couldn't be better. Atmosphere was enjoyable. Staff super friendly. I had pulled pork and couldn't have asked for better flavor. Wife had gut pak. I'd go again in a heart beat.

Texas barbecue has a reputation and Vitek's in Waco is not giving us a good one. Barbecue should be: 1) lean; not fatty 2) tender; not dry 3) tasty enough for you to lick your fingers; not drenched in a generic based sauce that causes you to grab napkin after napkin in order to rub any vestige of the concoction...

All the food is tremendous, but I really enjoy the gut pack. It's not a pretty name or haute cuisine, but a guilty pleasure not to be overlooked.

Having lunch with a customer and he recommended Vitek's. Being from the midwest and wanting some local cuisine, I was all for it. I am glad I did. I got the Gut Pak, a little weird name but was it good. Nothing fancy just BBQ on fritos with bread. The place was clean and service was good. A great value.

A few years ago, this was a hole in the wall. The only thing more plentiful than the meat was the amount of flies buzzing around the tiny "dining room". But gawd was the food great. Fast forward to 2014 and Vitek now has an expanded dining room, a patio big enough for a concert and overflow parking to hold... More
