Dear valued guests,
Waco kitchen is currently undergoing a transfer of legal ownership. During this transition, we have been advised to suspend alcohol sales until receiving confirmation that all requirements have been fulfilled.

We are continuing to offer our complete food and non-alcoholic menu but unfortunately, we cannot serve wine, beer, or spirits.
We look forward to a quick resolution and are excited to provide our full list of offerings as soon as possible.

Home of the WACO Taco - Expect a brilliant fusion of American & European cuisine freshly prepared by internationally-trained chefs each and every time you choose WACO Kitchen.

    My reservation got canceled due to short staff. Maybe as the season gets nicer it will be busier to accommodate the traffic. Will try again soon.

    I had the swordfish and it was phenomenal. My CFI had the chicken parm and he seemed to like it. My girlfriend had the Waco tacos and did not care for them, and to be fair they did not look that great. Great airport restaurant overall though I would just order something besides the tacos.

    Excellent service and food, as always. A very relaxing place. Weather permitting, wonderful views of a variety of aircraft taking off and landing.

    Great food/service. Unfortunately, no alcohol served due to license issue and no update on Open Table app to inform of that fact. Had the same “surprise” about 6 weeks ago and assumed issue was resolved. Not a big drinker, but do enjoy a cocktail with Saturday night dinner. Love this restaurant but disappointed as to the lack of disclosure as to their licensing issue.

    Eating at Waco Kitchen is a fun experience! You can see where the planes are built on your way to your table, then watch them takeoff or land while dining. We all enjoyed our food ruebens, tacos & beet salad & beet hummus. Will definitely come back again!

    Fantastic restaurant. Cost was reasonable. Server was super attentive. Somewhat limited selections on the menue but each selection that my group tried was superb. Seating overlooks the GA ramp amd the main runway so it was interesting to watch the planes come and go. And suoer convenient that we could park our aircraft right in front of the Waco Kitchen.

    I don’t know what happened to this place but they no longer have a liquor license and there was no mention of that on their website or on their social media where they show photos of their cocktails. When I asked what happened the person claimed they “got a new CEO and the license is being transferred to him”. Regardless the quality of the food and service has gone downhill and the place, which used to need a reservation on the weekend, was completely dead. Then they had an issue with my payment after I left the restaurant and called me to try and pay again—my bank showed the payment so this was an issue on their side, not mine. Overall a terrible experience and a restaurant that was once a favorite is a place I’ll never return to. I’ll be surprised if they’re still in business in six months.
