Have you ever been stuck in a food rut? You find yourself going to the same restaurant over and over-- not necessarily because you know it has the best food, but because you don’t have the energy to try another place and risk having a bad meal. This was the same tired routine that led to us making this list. We would drive to the same breakfast taco spot on any given Saturday, while passing two or three other places that we had never tried. When we couldn’t find a comprehensive list online to tell us Waco’s best breakfast tacos, we decided to make our own.
Great food, great entertainment, and an even greater cause. What would be better than spending your Sunday basking in the smell of BBQ and winning cool raffle prizes such as a beach vacation, all while helping a family in need? On Sunday, February 18th, at the Bellmead Civic Center (3900 Parrish Bellmead, TX 76705) from noon to 5pm, you can do just that! Tom Moore of Tom’s Smokehouse is making his mouth watering BBQ available to you once more for a great CAUSE. So who is the guy that can get the retired Bellmead BBQ guru to open his doors to the public once more? His name is Josh Stone.
When someone brings a new flavor to town, Waco Fork takes notice. But this time it’s a film festival that’s looking to spice things up.
My name is Louis Hunter. As one of the festival co-directors, and a fellow foodie, I appreciate this chance to tell Wacoans about the Deep in the Heart Film Festival premiering February 16th - 19th at the Waco Hippodrome.
Anyone who knows anything about Texas barbecue has heard of Franklin Barbecue in Austin. We've all heard stories of people getting in line at Franklin at 8am (3 hours before they open) just to make sure they get their fill of smoked goodness that day, because everyone knows they sell out fast. There was even an entrepreneurial teenager who made a side business out of waiting in line for people at Franklin so they didn't have to. He made some pretty good money until Franklin shut down his operation for the sake of fairness to those loyal customers who actually stood in line for themselves.
The WacoFork Club has been live for a little over a month, and we have been really excited to partner with some fantastic local non-profit organizations so far. We are excited to announce the addition of another organization to the list: The Waco Downtown Farmers Market! We already have several vendors at the Farmers Market, and now the Market can benefit directly from their partnership with the WacoFork Club!

The WacoFork Club just keeps getting better and better, folks. Our friends at Cricket's have officially joined the club! For those of you keeping score, that brings us up to 26 restaurants! And we're not done yet.

Seriously, why haven't you joined yet?
BRÛ Artisan Coffee Works is a newcomer to a growing and thriving Waco coffee scene, and they are the newest addition the the ever-growing WacoFork Club. Chad wrote about BRÛ a couple of months ago, and in that post he made the statement that downtown Waco now has a legitimate coffee district with 3 great coffee shops/roasters in a 5-block radius. I have to agree, and I absolutely love it!
The latest addition to our ever-growing list of WacoFork Club restaurants is Tea2Go. This news makes my wife very happy because she absolutely loves Tea2Go. In fact, sometimes she stops by Tea2Go before going to other restaurants to get a drink to bring with her.
With the purchase of an entrée, Diamondback's is offering Wacofork Club members a trio of their house-made signature rosemary cheddar popovers to take home with you after your meal. It's the perfect end to a nice meal at one of Waco's finest restaurants.
