Chip and Joanna Gaines’s new restaurant in Waco, Texas is shaping up to be another success—and it’s only been open a few days. The breakfast-and-brunch style restaurant has already drawn customers from across the country since its grand opening on Monday, according to NBC’s “Today.”
Following a recent “soft” opening, some of the first customers at Magnolia Table were quick to share what they thought of the delicious-looking menu items. Joanna has previously bragged about the biscuits and strawberry butter on Instagram. At least one customer agreed, saying, “probably the best biscuits I’ve every had.”
We also have to talk about this giant portion of avocado toast, served with red pepper flakes, sea salt and a lemon wedge, topped off with micro greens. You have to love the fresh-looking ingredients—many of which apparently come straight from Joanna’s farm garden.
The pictures posted to social media definitely make the food look tasty!
Magnolia Table will mostly serve as a breakfast joint, which is something Chip has always been interested in doing according to Joanna’s At Home blog. Lunch menu items include the House BLT, the Magnolia Burger and the Gaines Brothers Burger.
You can’t expect the “Fixer Upper” family to skimp out on the interior of their restaurant! It’s easy to see Joanna’s farmhouse-chic aesthetic. The black and white decor with pops of greenery has all of us begging for a home makeover.
Even the sign outside has the classic style of a retro diner!
In many ways, the Gaineses have made Waco a tourist attraction—and Magnolia Table is likely to be no different. Local reporters talked to people who flew from Ohio to Texas in hopes of getting a seat at the table. One woman woke up at 4:30 a.m. to make sure she got her seat!
Chip and Joanna even installed a “#MilesToMagnolia” photo booth fixture, all so customers can get that signature snapshot and brag about how far they trekked.
The beloved couple is giving customers plenty of reasons to come back for more. Magnolia Table seats 210 guests on a first-come, first-served basis—so that means no reservations if you’re planning to make a long drive. The hours are 6 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Saturday. The restaurant is closed on Sundays.
Clearly, customers are already enjoying the Gaines’ newest venture. Will you be making a trip to Waco to try Magnolia Table?
