Great food! No one left hungry

At the recommendation of locals, we drove in to have the Gut Pak experience. Yum! All I can say is you have to try this yourself, and come hungry. Even our college kid couldn't finish his meal! The staff is amazing, patient, kind, helpful. We will frequent here on future trips.

Can't beat this place before a Baylor game. The atmosphere is truly "college game day." The brisket and pulled pork are always moist and full off flavor. Love the patio when it is cool.

Went there for lunch. Word to the wise, get there before 1. Place filled up very fast! Other person I was with had the gut pack which looked delicious! I had the BBQ combo plate to try a couple of their different meats. The brisket was very tasty and moist. The pulled pork was also very good with a nice,... More

After several recommendations we decided to visit Vitek's. Our family had a Gut Pack, a 2 meat meal with brisket and pulled pork (dudes were potato salad and mac) and a ham a cheese sandwich. I didn't find any of the food enjoyable. We make a point of visiting all of the highly recommended Texas bbq places when traveling through... More

The Gut Pack is like a Frito Pie with chopped bbq beef and sausage. I think it is only open for lunch. They have good bbq beef too.

Home and originator of the Gut Pack. Voted best college eats on the Food Channel. Frio Pie concept with chopped bbq. You also have your choice of sausage. I recommend their home made sausage. Good flavor and not too spicy. If you drive thru Waco and don't have a small gut pack, you are just wrong. Julie is the third... More

If your looking for good BBQ This is definitely the place my husband introduced me to it and I loved it. It is creative and such a great place to eat. Worth the trip to the Baylor area for this amazing food.

Favorite of Baylor's students. Good BBQ. They can put together a nice buffet table of different meats and sides. Good service.

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 and cheese).

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.
