Places We Love: Vitek’s and Uncle Dan’s

While listing out all the local places I love, I came to an impasse: Vitek’s? or Uncle Dan’s? The question about whose barbecue is best surfaces occasionally, becomes a heated debate, and then disappears as the individuals become preoccupied with eating the barbecue of their choice.

On one hand, you have the tender, delicious brisket and ribs at Uncle Dan’s. Everything is cooked to perfection and the barbecue sauce rocks. On the other hand, you have the Gut Pak – the undisputed king of college eats – and all of Vitek’s fantastic homemade sausage. Aaron loves the sausage so much he drove out to Vitek’s to add it to his gumbo for family dinner.


We watched the Baylor-Wisconsin game on the Vitek's patio.  Aaron refused to pretend to be happy.

How do I decide where to go? Honestly it just depends on which side of town I’m on. Is that a cop-out? Sort of. But I’m just a man who loves good food – something Vitek’s and Uncle Dan’s both have in spades.
