Excellent BBQ & Friendly Service

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... read 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!

This place has been around for more than 20 years--my wife used to love it when she was in school at Baylor--but has recently expanded and modernized. Good BBQ, beer and wine on site, a little store selling BBQ related souvenirs. Somewhat joking about the gut pak - it is BBQ meets Frito Pie: A layer of corn chips are... More

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 high side. The Diet... 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.
