They are well known in the Waco area. The favorite that you always hear about is "The Gut Pack" which is a combination of everything stacked on one plate. Yummy to eat.

Took a friend with me while in town for a meeting. He loved it as much as I always have! Their BBQ is unbeatable and reasonably priced.

Vitek's is another Waco tradition. Been going since college. Great BBQ, great owners. Gets really busy so call ahead if you have a large group.

My roommate and I loved eating here at Vitek's! Their pulled pork that I had for lunch was delicious and so tender. The atmosphere and spacious seating area was great as well.

This is a great BBQ place. My favorite is the Baked Potato with BBQ Brisket. For 2 adults and two tweens It cost $31 for 2 small potatoes, 2 sandwiches, 1 side, 2 banana puddings, 1 drink for lunch. It would have cost more if we would have gotten the large potatoes and the bbq platters that had 2 sides... More

Awesome family owned BBQ restaurant conveniently located right off I-35 and near Baylor University. It is our first choice for BBQ when in Waco. High quality meats- brisket is our favorite but love the pulled pork and sausage too. Always tender, moist and yet not fatty. Plenty of seating for large group or family with even an outside eating area.... More

We love this place! Every time we visit from Georgia we make time to stop and have lunch. We love the way you order and the look of the building. You can't get brisket like this in GA. The beans and Mac and cheese are a must as well.

Vitek's was recommended to us....it was a great choice. The brisket, pulled pork, and sausage we tried was excellent. The side of beans were great. Mac and cheese was dry. Prices were okay. Delicious!

If you want a new dining experience you have to try Vitek's world famous Gut-Pack. You'll probably have to stand in line and wait a few minutes but it will definitely be worth the wait. A Bar-B-Q meal that will make your day.

A local favorite-corn chips covered with brisket, sausage, bbq sauce, cheese and jalapenos. I've been going here for years and it is fantastic.
