Always a crowd pleaser!

This has become one of our favorite places in Waco...always worth the time just off I-35 for a delicious and filling treat. Just order the "Gut Pack" but make sure you bring a hearty appetite if you get the large. I recommend the homemade sausage and all the "fixins" (onions, jalapeños, pickles... read more

We were told this is THE PLACE to go for BBQ in Waco, so my friend and I went and were not disappointed. Finding a table was easy in their large sitting area, service was very quick, and the food and price were AMAZING! Definitely a place that everyone should eat.

I went there for weekday lunch and had a slow-smoked pulled pork sandwich that was really yummy. The pork was seasoned well and very tasty. We sat in the covered area outside. It looks like it would be a fun place to hang out in the evening and have a few adult drinks! I will go back when I'm in... More

Such high expectations and so much disappointment. The brisket and sausage were both dry and tasteless. Maybe we caught them on a bad day? On a good note, the tea was good, the employees were friendly, and the service was quick!

This is not your typical BBQ. In fact for the most part BBQ is a condiment. You can get a more traditional BBQ plate, but that menu is off to the side. This place caters to Baylor students and their Gut Pak is unique and honestly good. Fritos, bean, sausage, brisket, onions, pickles, jalapenos, and cheese--what's not to like. It... More

I've had better pulled pork but some of their combination dinners would have been better choice had I not classified them as a "heart attack waiting to happen". I say that in a good way - maybe like sharing. Loved the atmosphere near the Baylor campus.

We ate at Vitek's BBQ last weekend on our trip to Waco based on a referral from a friend. We were so glad we stopped in! Its located right off of I-35 in the middle of Waco. There is plenty of parking, and easy access to the storefront. After looking at the menu, we proceeded to the order counter, and... More

The Gut Pak is the obvious must-get, but the grilled turkey is also excellent. And the Texas sweet potato spud.

Great BBQ. Fast service. Looks like a cool place to watch a football game during football season. I had the gut pack. I will be back!
