Reliable lunch and dinner option with a delightful outside patio. Especially good with their Greek dishes (like the grilled lamb chops) and their dessert options (white chocolate bread pudding). As an aside, their Austin cream pie is, in fact, a chocolate cake with creamy layers, and one that should be tried.


1509 Austin Avenue
Tues.-Sat. 11:00 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

A perfect place for ladies who lunch, but the desserts are so good that the men are willing to navigate the chicken salad plate, too. Do not miss the buttermilk pie. Try the one with coconut baked on top, too. While you’re at it, throw in a slice of Italian cream cake.


Bangkok Royal
215 South University Parks Drive

Super-fresh Thai food only minutes from campus. You absolutely must end each meal with a scoop of their homemade coconut ice cream.

Mon.-Sat. 6:30 a.m.-12:00 a.m.

Iconic local joint with food that everyone loves; a favorite of former president George Bush, country singer Pat Green, and a host of other international figures. Order at least one round of crazy wings-a morsel of chicken breast and pepper-jack cheese wrapped in chopped jalapeno and a slice of bacon, and then deep fried. You dip it in ranch dressing, in case you were wondering.

Homestead Heritage
608 Dry Creek Road
Mon.-Fri. 11:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.
Sat. 7:00a.m.-6:00 p.m.

Enjoy food from their fields, tilled by horse-pulled tools, cheese made from the milk of their cows and goats and sheep, loaves and loaves of freshly baked breads, and a jalapeno sweet potato soup to die for. Dessert would require another full paragraph.

Katie’s Frozen Custard
602 South Valley Mills Drive

The best soft serve ice cream. In. The. Universe. (Especially during hot Texas summer nights.)

Sat. 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.

Barbecue, Waco-style, with high kudos from Texas Monthly. (Chosen as one of the 50 best in Texas, no less.) Don’t arrive too late. It officially closes at 2pm, but when the meat’s gone, the doors close.

Uncle Dan’s Barbeque
1001 Lake Air Drive
Mon.-Sat. 11:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m.

Waco natives love this place. The former US Ambassador to Sweden, Waco native Lyndon Olson, Jr., has been known to FedEx an entire fete of Uncle Dan’s ‘cue over to the embassy so the Swedes can get a taste of some slow-smoked beef and a side of his famous potato salad.

Hope you have a wonderful day here at Baylor!
