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.

Hands down, Vitek's has some of the best BBQ in town. If you're a visitor to Waco, you have to go! Vitek's is particularly busy anytime lots of Baylor parents are in town. It's a great family friendly environment with amazing food! I always recommend...More

We really liked the food here. We tried the ribs, brisket and pulled pork and we liked it all. The mac and cheese and potato salad was very well as well. Would for sure come back and eat again.
