WacoFork Club Restaurants - Captain Billy Whizzbang's

Before I get into this next restaurant on the list of participating WacoFork Club restaurants, I wanted to let you know that we just added 5 more restaurants to the list yesterday! We intended to feature all of our participating restaurants before Monday's launch, but it looks like we'll be featuring them into next week. This club is a living thing that will continue to grow long after we launch. We will keep adding restaurants and deals as long as there are restaurants that want to participate.

The next restaurant in the ever-growing list of WacoFork Club participating restaurants is a Waco institution: Captain Billy Whizzbang's. I've been eating at Whizzbang's (true Wacoans call it "Whizzbang's" because who has time to say the whole name?) for as long as I can remember. I can still remember eating at Whizzbang's in their little hole-in-the-wall location on Waco Drive when I was a kid, getting a Coke in a glass bottle and watching them cook a dozen burgers on the flat iron grill behind the counter.

Every trip to Whizzbang's conjures up that same nostalgia, with the hot air balloon on the sign and the consistently delicious burgers they're known for. But just because they have a deep and rich history here in Waco, that doesn't mean that Whizzbang's won't innovate. Just a few years ago, they introduced the Whizz-Pigg, a burger made from combining beef and bacon into a single patty of ground bacon beef that is ridiculously good. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.

For WacoFork Club members, Whizzbang's is offering a free drink with the purchase of a burger and a side.
