Accidentally spotted this place and saw they had Korean food. Being part 1/2 Korean, I thought, "Yes!" First impression was the inside looked like a converted burger or BBQ place. I had the traditional Bulgogi. The regular portion was plenty by itself, but they also brought out rice in a big bowl, lettuce, hot bean past, kimchi...all this for $10.99!... More

The sushi is quite large and very fresh. I ordered a type of soup that I really didn't enjoy and will get the California roll next time. The atmosphere is enjoyable and the location is easy to park right out front. It is never crowded and usually has college age crowd. The service was fast and the food was fresh.... More

We're always looking for variety and value, so it was great to find this near our hotel (Hampton Inn). It's also near a shopping area. We got there right around 11 so no crowds. You order at the counter. They have sushi, nigiri, noodles, rice but we decided to go for the Korean tacos..I loved the concept, and I think... More

The Baylor Roll was delicious. It had 5 types of sauce on it. I liked that the roll had some crunch to it. The roll was $8.99 and came with crab and masago on cali. It was very filling. It was nice to find a sushi bar while out shopping in the Marketplace in Waco. The service was quick just... More

This is the second time I've gone in for bubble tea only to find they don't have boba! Why advertise bubble tea if you never have it???

Wako Roll is one of those places which is just ordinary. Not good - not bad just average. We had two Bibimbap Bowls with white rice. We have been somewhat spoiled but having some excellent Korean restaurants close to our home so these were lacking. Although the bibimbap bowls were certainly eatable there was just not snap to make you... More

Like any Trip Advisor aficionado I did my homework and read the reviews before dining here. I took the advice and ordered Beef Bulgogi. The best thing on my plate was the fried rice, which was actually very good! There was plenty of food on the plate: large portions of beef, rice, salad, brocolli, topped with a grilled pineapple ring... More

We returned to this restaurant because our previous visit was fun. The restaurant features a good sushi selection, as well as an extensive Korean menu. I had previously had the kim chi stew with pork. It was good. This time, however, the pork was all fat and gristle, while my wife had to hunt for the chicken in her chicken... More

This is a Japanese-Korean eatery. The Baylor and their rolls are ok compared the once we had. I don't think they use the right sticky rice and it's just not seasoned right. The chicken teriyaki meat was not well cooked so beware. The beef teriyaki was good though. The servers looked tired and it was only lunchtime! I won't go... More

When I have a hankering for Asian food, I usually go to Wako Roll. They have a Baylor special that has 3 delicious cooked sushi rolls. Very delicious. The prices are great, too. It's quiet at lunch. I hope not too many people discover it! Just kidding.
