Happy Tuesday everyone!
Things have finally started to quiet down around here, and I’m hoping that means more blog posts, and more exploring around town. A few weeks ago I was lucky to be able to go to a sneak peak tasting of Milo All Day This gem has just popped up near downtown Waco in a renovated old building. Corey, the owner, grew his business from a biscuit food truck, which he still runs, and it’s super popular around town. While the biscuits are sadly not gluten free, the food on this menu had lots of options, is locally-sourced, and rotates so that there is always new options to try.
The design inside is clean and modern, with plenty of seating, and art pieces from locals.
I was also loving the outdoor seating area, which will be so nice this fall. Side note… how is it already so hot? Where is the rain??? What happened to spring???? Ok, rant over.
The sample menu had a few different items to try. First, the brought out a few starters: pimento cheese and homemade crackers, onion dip and homemade potato chips, and sorghum-glazed wings. Everything was GF besides the crackers. I used some of the potato chips to try the pimento cheese, and it was sooooo good. I’m a sucker for a good pimento cheese dip, and this was one of the best.
Nick and I went back when they officially opened, so I’ve been able to try a couple different entrées. First was the Old Glory Burger. Mine came piled on veggies and pickles, and covered cheesy goodness. The burger was juicy, perfectly cooked, and was not huge so I didn’t feel stuffed afterwards.
My second adventure was the roasted quail, with Texas peaches, charred corn, and heirloom tomatoes. This was a bit out of my comfort zone. I didn’t think I would like the quail, but everything complemented each other so well! The corn and peaches really made the dish, and it was the perfect portion size!
They are open all day (8am-10pm) on weekdays and (9am-10pm) on weekends. Corey and the cooking staff seemed really knowledgeable about gluten free options and safe kitchen practices. They even had gluten free dessert option!!
Check them out next time you are in town and want to hang with the locals, or not deal with the Magnolia Table lines =).
