“Live Music Capital of Waco. Tour busses line the street most weekends with legendary and up and coming artists. Always easy to see the stage and plenty of bars scattered around so the lines are never too long. Check out their calendar on-line for upcoming acts. The food is really good. Try the chicken strips. (the batter has frosted flakes in it)”

“Not traditional Texas fare, but oh so good. Fresh Mediterranean food in an industrial setting. High ceilings. Brick warehouse. Definitely worth the visit...and it’s in the heart of downtown Waco. ”

“I have never eaten a meal here that I didn't love. Not just like.. but LOVE. On top of that the atmosphere is fun and the drinks are great! Perfect for any meal or a late weekend night hang. I can't recommend this place enough. There is a wide selection of food offerings, something to please everyone! I recommend getting their scratch made Banana Pudding.. I'm not joking when I say I'm not a banana fan and this is one of the most delicious deserts I've had in my entire life! I'm not joking ya'll, I eat one there and then get one to go it's that dang good! ”
