Chuy's for Mexican
Twisted Root for burgers
PeiWei for pseudochinese
Outback for steaks, unless you want to spend big at Diamondbacks
Heidenmiller's for chicken fried and stuffed jalapeños
George's does a good job on a lot of things, and have sliced fried jalapeños
Newk's for salad
I haven't found good BBQ
Buffalo Wild Wings for chicken wings
Sushi at the place next to Red Lobster (forgot the name).
BJ's for generally good stuff.
A seafood place on Valley Mills has real good red beans and rice.
Buffalo Billy's has decent red beans and rice and other stuff.
I haven't found good Italian, but Olive Garden is Ok.

My favorite is Buzzard Billy's right on the Brazos across from Baylor stadium. Really good Cajun food and I am especially fond of their alligator cheers
Vitek's is pretty good Q

There's a dive Cajun place on Hwy 77/Old Dallas Hwy called Fridays... legit!!
Lots of pocket joints around other than the chains, honestly have to ask locals to find them. While there are some decent BBQ places but nothing earth shattering. Couple of places, The Catch and Papa Tollos pizza are a couple of my favorites. Those along with Don Carlos Mexican cafe are out go to places. There's a higher end place call 135 Prime that is suppose to be good but I've never been.

Buzzard Billy's is the only place I'll stop at passing through there. Heitmillers is good too.

If you know what - good - food is, don't waste $$$ on 135 prime. It's okay once, but it never changes.

Diamondbacks - it's good. But they have big city prices without actual big city food. If you spend the same amount in a real city, at a legit restaurant, you will get a much better meal, more than likely.

For legit Mexican - not tex mex - visit Rufi's on 25th St. (I think)

For sushi, go to Dallas or Austin. If you want sushi rolls, Wako Roll or Fuji are good in Waco.

Vitak's or Rudy's have the best BBQ... in Waco.

Twisted root for burgers.

McGregor has a decent Italian place (Luigi's???)

I need to eat at Friday's still.



I'm a food snob.

Oh! The Grape is probably the best dinner in town, if you are looking for an evening meal. Creative, changes based on what is fresh, and cool little environment. Note, however, that it is a wine bar first and foremost. They have one chef who prepares all the food. If it's busy, it might take a few minutes... but it will be good.

Torchy's has the best Tacos in Waco.

The food trucks offer good stuff too.

For Mediterranean, Dee's or the place on Austin Ave is good (Forgetting name, though)

135 is my favorite in Waco for steak. Parking hint: Drive behind the building and there's almost always closer in parking. Use the breezeway to walk under to the front door.

Use to be a good steak house on the north side of Waco. Maybe even a little past Bellmead, can't remember the name.

That would be Lone Star Tavern. Had many a griddle cooked sirloin there with their natural gravy.

I've heard good things about Honey Tonk Kid BBQ in Waco.

Here is a list Eater put together.

On that list, D's is the best, I think. Lula Jane's is great for baked treats.
