The gutpak is easily the best BBQ plate I've had in Waco. It's an all encompassing dish that won't leave you wishing you had gotten something else. Seriously, I've gotten that every time I've been. The atmosphere is a mix of rustic and modern styles and it's accomplished well with Baylor University history mixed in for a touch of that... More

Calling the Gut Pak, Waco's version of the Garbage Plate is high praise (if you have enjoyed a Nick Tahoe's Garbage Plate you know what I mean). Corn chips ,beans, cheese, beef, sausage, the whole what ever you want. Hang over food for sure. We also had ribs and brisket, the ribs were great seasoned nicely so that the pork... More

Arrived about 45 minutes before closing (Thursday night) and some item (including Ribs) out! Must have been in demand? Selected the beef and sausage, potato salad and spices beans......outstanding. I will make sure I get back next time to get some ribs. Might be a good reason they ran out.

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.

We ordered the chopped BBQ sandwich and a meal with sliced BBQ, sausage, potato salad and beans. I would say that the BBQ was about the same as any other BBQ that I have eaten in this area. 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. This place has been around for almost 100 years and is a very large place. However do expect some waiting if you come at busy times---but... More

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
