One More Bite

The WacoFork Blog

Next on our list of restaurants participating in the WacoFork Club is Co-Town Crépes.

Co-Town Crépes is a food truck with a spot in the "siloteria" back behind the Magnolia silos along with a regular spot at the Waco Downtown Farmer's Market. They offer a variety of delicious sweet and savory crépes to suit any appetite made with fresh ingredients.

We are really excited about this the World Cup Café participating in the WacoFork Club because of its impact on its neighborhood and the local community.

The World Cup Café opened in January of 2006, and was started by Mission Waco as "a way to bring residents from North Waco together with middle-income folks in this revitalizing community."The purpose of the World Cup Café is to offer a friendly site promoting community relationships, global concern, job training, and neighborhood economic development.

Along with great local restaurants that offer awesome discounts to WacoFork Club members, we are also partnering with some fantastic local non-profit organizations to help raise awareness about these organizations and raise much needed funds. For each WacoFork Club membership that is purchased, we will donate $10 to one of our non-profit partners.

As with our restaurants, we are announcing our non-profit partners 1-by-1 this week. First up is Caritas of Waco.

The next local favorite that will be participating in the WacoFork Club is Xristo's Cafe, the Greek food truck at that anchors the spot at University Parks and Franklin Ave.

Xristo's debuted at Winter Wonderland in December 2013 before setting up shop at its current location in March 2014. This truck was an instant hit, brining delicious and healthy Greek cuisine to a market in need of some culture.

The next restaurant in our series introducing the restaurants participating in the WacoFork Club is Luna Juice Bar.

Luna Juice Bar is a food truck that offers cold pressed juices, smoothies, and other fresh, healthy treats back behind the Magnolia Silos in the "siloteria." If you haven't had a smoothie from Luna Juice Bar, you're missing out. Everything they serve is made with fresh ingredients with no additives, preservatives, or added sugars. The juices and smoothies are so good, it almost feels like cheating because you know what they give you will be healthy.

Carrying on with our series of introducing restaurants that are participating in the WacoFork Club, the next stop is 3 Spoons Yogurt.

3 Spoons kicked off the great Waco yogurt wars of 2011 when it opened its first Waco location at Central Texas Marketplace. It was the first of the build-your-own-yogurt options available in Waco, offering a self-serve wall of a variety of flavors that you can mix and match, and a buffet of toppings you can pile on to your yogurt to build your own custom creation. They added a second location in Hewitt not long after the first, and both locations are still going strong.

As we announced on Tuesday, the WacoFork Club is launching on August 15! Over the next week-and-a-half, we will be posting a series of blog posts introducing our participating restaurants and non-profit organizations. First up is 900 Degrees Wood Fired Pizzeria.

900 Degrees Wood Fired Pizzeria is a food trailer serving up authentic Neoplitan pizza from a 900 degree wood fired pizza oven on the back of the trailer. The trailer officially opened downtown in the fall of 2014 and moved over to the Magnolia Market Silos when they opened downtown.

8 things your waitress hates to hear

February 11, 2014 | Dustin Payne | Profiles | Comment

We’ve all done it.

At one point or another, we have all asked our waiters and waitresses a dumb question, or we have said something so entirely inconsiderate that we go home racking our brains as to why we though that would have been appropriate in the first place. I too am guilty of this restaurant sin, even after having worked in restaurants for more than 10 years. Thus, in the name of education, I have compiled a list of things you should never say to your server, and the things you should say or do instead.

On Tuesday, Dustin Payne introduced us to the TSTC culinary arts program. Today I'm going to formally introduce Dustin, our intern this spring.

That's him with his arm raised and The Coliseum in the background.

I'm here to testify that it takes absolutely no credentials to write about restaurants. So there's no shortage of people on the internet who will tell you where they think you should dine when visiting, say, Phoenix.

As it happens, though, I was recently in Phoenix when a couple of sportswriter buddies of mine continued their habit of raving about a particular internet food advisory site called I thought it would be a good site to pass along to you, despite the fact that doesn't include any Waco restaurants on its list.
