Barbecue Champions

Helberg Barbecue is a family-owned roadside barbecue joint in Waco, Texas. Run by a tight-knit crew with a heavy focus on quality, consistency, and customer service, everything is scratch-made in house and cut to order. You might wait in line a little longer, and you might pay a little extra…but once you’ve had it, you’ll understand.

Welcome to Vitek’s, Home of the Original Gut Pak! Whether you are a local Wacoan, here for the first time, or returning to an old favorite, this classic Waco restaurant is so glad to have you. Check out their menu for all of their tasty options.
