Best Places to Eat in Waco, TX
Hi friends! So you’re headed to Waco? Likely to visit Magnolia Market, am I right? Well we did the same thing earlier this year and it was just the best time!

We had some good eats during our stay, so I wanted to share our favorites with you so you can eat well during your visit as well!

Now if you go to Magnolia Table, chances are you’ll see Health Camp just across the parking lot! You know, its exterior is fun and inviting, but the food is just as good! Health Camp is a a classic old fashioned burger joint serving burgers, shakes and malts. And EVERYTHING is handmade right down to the ice cream! You can really tell by how fresh and tasty everything is; get the bacon cheeseburger, fries and a chocolate malt!
Ok if you’re from Texas or have visited, you’ve likely heard of Torchy’s Tacos! Being from Arizona, I know my way around a good taco, but I have to say that I LOVE what Torchy’s has done! Their menu is full of interesting taco creations and you can pick and choose which tacos you want so try something new! You’re also going to want to order their chips & queso AND if you have room, their fried cookie dough!
Food Trucks at the Silos
If you’re headed to Magnolia Market, make sure you plan to eat lunch at the Magnolia Food Trucks! Now the trucks and what is available may vary depending on the day you visit…for instance the Crepes come highly recommended BUT the Crepe Truck wasn’t there when we visited. Total bummer! It’s ok though, we got plenty good to eat…and drink!
Alabama Sweet Tea
Let’s start off with something good to drink! We loved the Alabama Sweet Tea truck! Seriously the best sweet tea I’ve ever had AND you get to keep this adorable Embossed Glass Jar which is not only a fun keepsake from your Magnolia Market visit, but it’s also one of my favorite jars to drink from at home!
You had me at CHEDDAR. We took a few laps around the food trucks on our visit but I kept coming back to comfort foods: grilled cheese and mac & cheese! So I opted for a Cheddar Box Gourmet Grilled Cheese with a side of their homemade Mac & Cheese, which both were amazing! I would highly recommend.
Sweets and Snack Spots
Silos Baking Co.
A stop at Silos Baking Co. while you’re at Magnolia Market is a MUST! They have the best cupcakes topped with billowy, fluffy frosting and other treats and pastries too! Be sure to check out our Silos Baking Co. tips on what to expect and what to order for your visit!

Chucks Gourmet Popcorn
You’ll likely smell it the moment you arrive at Magnolia Market, but do yourself a favor and grab a bag of Chucks Gourmet Popcorn, a booth located on the outside of Magnolia Market next to the gazebo and lawn. It’s seriously good and some of the best kettle corn I’ve ever had.
This place was recommended by my friend Randi of Dukes and Duchesses and I’m so glad she did! Not only is it bright and fun, it’s filled with TONS of sweets and nostalgic eats that are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. We spent a lot of time in there just looking around and finding treats to take home to the family. You’ll definitely want to stop by.
