Chad and I have been friends since we were preschoolers in the early 80's, and we both grew up in Waco in the 80's and 90's. That's one of the reasons we started WacoFork, because we wanted to help promote all the cool things that have been happening and continue to happen in and around Waco, especially in the restaurant scene.
In that spirit, I wanted to take a look back at what it was like growing up in Waco in the 80's and 90's. Be sure and add your memories of “old Waco” in the comments below.
Our friends at Cafe Homestead play a role in one of Central Texas' unique Thanksgiving traditions at the Homestead Fair.
The Homestead Heritage farm offers classes year around, teaching kitchen and agriculture skills as well as woodworking and other traditional crafts. On Thanksgiving weekend, specifically from Friday through Sunday this week, Homestead Heritage rolls out those activities and a bunch more.
My friend Tye Barrett and I grabbed some pizza from Poppa Rollo's, reviewed the Baylor-Texas Tech game at AT&T Stadium and looked forward to this week's massive clash between Baylor and Oklahoma State in Stillwater.

I recently took a visit to Dave’s Burger Barn at the corner of Patricia and Crest in order to confirm some talk I had heard during the week about a Thanksgiving project concerning Dave’s. I talked with Melanie Williams, an employee and temporary spokesperson for Dave’s, and it turned out that everything I had heard was true, and then some.
This Thanksgiving, Dave’s is really putting forth an effort to engage their community by opening their doors from 11am-2pm for a Thanksgiving lunch.

If you have ever wandered into the Johnny Carino’s Italian Grill that resides near the corner of Valley Mills and Lake Shore Drive on a particular Tuesday evening, then you might have noticed the white linen cloths draping the tables, short tea light candles burning dimly, and a well dressed waiter holding a microphone and discussing a particular bottle of wine.
If you have stumbled upon this sight, then you became a witness to one of the many Wine Dinners that Johnny Carino’s hosts every last Tuesday of the month. I was curious as to what one might expect when attending one of these events, and so I stopped by to see this dinner in action, but more specifically to see what’s going on at Johnny Carino’s.
Cory and I had one of those experiences on Monday night that, as proprietors of a restaurant-guide website, we wish we could bottle up and sell to other entrepreneurs. We were able to enjoy a restaurant preview of a restaurant that is generating quite a bit of buzz in town while visiting with both users of our website and people in the restaurant business who are excited to be in our town.
Honestly, the two hours we spent at Smashburger went by too fast.
Hewitt has the bases loaded when it comes to dining choices.
Fast food on first, mid-range casual dining on second, and upscale on third. If your buddy or significant other asks "Where you wanna eat dinner?" you've got at least one choice for every mood.
My friends Tye Barrett, Jacob Robinson and I grabbed some pizza from Shorty's Pizza Shack and talked about Big 12 football. Watch it.
I want to keep this simple. I hesitate to write it, but it needs to be out there for reasons that will become apparent.
I parked at the Pizza Hut next door to Common Grounds at 10:23 this morning (according to the clock on my car), right in front of a tow-zone sign protecting Pizza Hut's parking spaces. I considered this choice, looked over my shoulder to see the sign on the door advertising that the restaurant opened at 11 and decided I would either leave Common Grounds by 11 (most likely) or eat at Pizza Hut (considerably less likely). Either way, I wouldn't be around to have my car towed.
