We stopped based on the 4.5 rating, sadly disappointing. I had the rib plate, the ribs had a nice smoke but had a real sweet taste to the point it overpowered the flavor of the meat. My sides were Mac & cheese, little cheese almost...More

We stopped at Waco's Magnolia Silobration on our way to Galveston. There were many food trucks to select from for lunch. We heard that Vitek's Bar B Q was good. The reputation is well earned and the lunch was great.
