We've got our fill on superb BBQ options around the 254. But Tony D's is truly a local gem. I've been eating there for years.
The wonderful opportunity to eat on butcher paper should never be turned down. And to be offered gravy...which is actually meat drippings from the pit...is a blessing in disguise to your lower GI.
It's simple. It's Texas. But more importantly, it's Waco. And when they sell out, they're closed. My advice...don't wait until noon to go. You will be left high and dry. It's a "early lunch" kind of place.
I noticed the hours were 9am-sell out. So I asked Tony if they served breakfast. He looked at me with such disdain and said, "no, we sell BBQ." I said "at 9am?" He said "we've got people lined up at the door when we show up to work.
It's that good!
Go. Go now. And get the Large order...1/2 brisket 1/2 sausage. Hot sauce over BBQ sauce for sure. You thank yourself.
