The Clay Pot used to be amazing, with lots of fresh produce and great service. It's changed a lot since I was in college.

“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2012

If you like a simple and healthy lunch, this is a place to go. The soups are delicious. It hits the spot and does not leave you bloated. Lots of regulars frequent the place if that tells you anything. I would highly recommend this place and its easy on the wallet. Service might be a little slow at times but worth the wait.

“Clay Pot Restaurant near LaQuinta Waco”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2012

This restaurant was recommended by LaQuinta Inn management. The food is delicious. We ordered spring rolls as appetizers. Special on Tuesday is 2 for price of 1. My main course selection was the traditional Clay Pot with beef. Served over rice with steamed vegetables, the aroma and flavor was very nice. My husband chose Bun Xao Bo Vien. Steak and meatballs with steamed vegetables over vermicelli. Again the flavors and aroma was wonderful. Dessert selection of New York Cheese Cake or Baklava. The baklava was flaky crust. We will dine here again next time we drive thru Waco.

“Not very authentic Vietnamese food.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2011

Had the bun thit nuong and was totally different than I expected. It was soupy and not very good. The atmosphere was typical of an Asian restaurant. I would not eat here again.
