If you want bbq in Waco you need to try Vitek's. Get the Gutpack (or the 1/2) it's amazing and very filling as well. Have cold beer too. Meat is always tender and delicious.

As a Baylor student 25 years ago, we would frequent Viteks when it was a small, simple grocery that offered BBQ on the side with no seating. We got the famed GUT PACK and took it back to our apartment to eat. I was pleasantly...More
