These are a few of our faves!
If you're headed to the Silos, you're in luck! There are a few different food trucks there and they're all delicious, so you're sure to find something to suit your taste. My personal favorite is the Club Sandwich truck- they have something called a Trashcan Rice Bowl that is AMAZING. Don't ask, just eat. :)

Be prepared for a long wait, but if you have some time on your hands Magnolia Table is wonderful. Their pimiento cheese is delicious, and their breakfast menu is amazing. They have a great outdoor area for kids and even coffee and snacks available while you wait.

This is hands-down the best BBQ in Waco. Our faves are their brisket, sausage links, and ribs. Don't forget the cheesy grits!

We love Koko Ramen! Try the Tonkatsu with extra pork belly. It holds up next to places we've been to in Japan.

This little food truck has a deck for eating. Run down there to get some breakfast treats or a delicious salad for lunch. It's a quick stop with hearty, healthy options.

Milo is a perfect setting for any type of meal you're looking for. They have coffee and pastries for a quick breakfast, and farm to table ingredients for lunch and dinner. We've gone to quite a few date nights at Milo and it's always a hit.

Favorite Coffee Shops
I'm a coffee lover and thought I'd share a few of my favorite places to grab a cup of joe while you're in Waco!
Dichotomy has my very favorite iced latte. Their coffee is so smooth and delicious- also grab a breakfast taco while you're there. Perfect combo!

This is where the Baylor students hang out, drink coffee, and study. Plenty of room and a great vibe for sitting awhile. My favorite is their Cowboy- it's an iced coffee with their secret sauce and some cream. Perfect on a hot Texas day.
