Food was good though I expected to be "wowed" by their briskett. Mac n cheese was tasty and cheesy (I point this out 'cause it barely happens even though that's the main ingredient). Prices are fair for the portions, tried the Brisket Tacos and the meat was soft but there wasn't anything in particular about the flavor. Love the decor... More

Known for their Gut Pack, this is another local favorite. I usually have the Gut Pack but at times I'll get their loaded sweat potato... both are delicious and filling. Very clean and plenty of seating. Don't let the long line be a deterrent as it goes fast. Also covered area to eat outside on the nice days.

This is an absolute must-stop to eat at!! Recommend all Baylor families (and others) eat here. Pulled pork sandwiches were so good (but a little small). Gut-pack was so yummy (not good if you're on a diet but should try it at least once. Same can be said for the yummy Nachos). All bread/buns were dairy-free which was a huge... More

We visit our son at BU and always make a stop at Viteks. From the gut packs to the spud packs, salads and sandwiches, we never walk away hungry. Love the food and atmosphere.

This is the Birth place of the Infamous GutPack. If you get a large? Chances are you will not finish it!!! This started out as a grocery store with a Deli. Father and Son, then the Son took over and concentrated on the Deli part. Son and his family ran it and he wanted to golf more and the kids... More

I know this place is popular, but there's just too much really good BBQ around to rave about Vitek's. Three times now the BBQ sauce was required because the brisket was too dry to eat without it. And frankly, not enough flavor on its own, either. Never had the gut pack, which seems like a logical way to cover the... More

Great BBQ in Waco with the opportunity to experience the Gut Pack. It is like a BBQ Fritos pie. If you go for the large - don't expect to eat again that day ;)

No joke, hands down best BBQ I've not made myself. Best turkey period. Brisket and turkey both were perfectly most, great smoke rings, salt and pepper rub only. A must stop..
