Every March, we watch the madness of college basketball teams fight for the title as the #1 team in the nation (Even though Baylor Bears will always be our #1). This year, the Cooking Channel decided to have a little fun of their own by putting basketball aside and making food the real competitor. They’re putting some of the best foods from colleges across the country against each other to compete in their Bracket Battle: Best College Eats tournament to see wich college dish is the best. One of our personal favorites, and neighbors, even made the list–but of course, that was no surprise to us!
Mouth-watering Gut Packs from Vitek’s BBQ, right here in Waco, Texas is fighting for the #1 spot! Leah has been long-time friends with Julie Vitek, and through their Texas Restaurant Association meetings, they grew to know each other better and shared their love for food. It’s one of our favorite tailgating foods throughout all the Baylor Sports. No football game would be complete without a Vitek’s Gut Pack and a big glass of their sweet tea! But they continue to be our meal of choice during basketball halftimes, baseball’s 7th inning stretch or just on a sunny afternoon in Waco.
The mix of meats- the jalapeno sausage is delicious- BBQ sauce, fritos, cheese and beans is a southern favorite and leaves your stomach stuffed! We like to add onions, pickles, and jalapenos for an extra kick! Weather you’re a native of Waco, a Baylor student, or just passing through, you have to try this college dish!
Good luck to Vitek’s BBQ and the Vitek family! We’ll be cheering you on and voting you as our favorite college dish! To learn more, visit the Cooking Channel website and go vote!
