Fun day – Part 2 – Lunch in Waco

So, after wandering around Magnolia Market we were ready for some late lunch and DIL knew just the place – “Health Camp”.  This place has been there since 1949 – and while the name sounds healthy – I’m not sure the food is 😄, but it sure is good.

It doesn’t look like it’s changed much since it opened.  DIL used to visit it when she was in school at Baylor.

The hamburger, onion rings and milk shake were to die for.  We’re not talking fast food here either.  The milk shake menu was two long columns.  I had butter pecan while #2 son and DIL had some form of chocolate.

We were not there at regular lunch time, but they were still doing a thriving business.

  2. Now I want a milkshake 🙂

    We have a place like that here – not a chain, been there forever, the decor and menu has never changed…and there are usually lines out the door just for a quarter pounder with cheese and some fries, cuz they’re That Good.

      There was a long line when we went to this place too – lots of people doing take out, but I had fun eating right there. I’m sure it’s the same booths and tables that they’ve always had. Milkshake was the real deal too.

      And I’m here to tell you the milkshake, hamburger and onion rings were DELICIOUS. Healthy? Well, probably not. But for me I don’t do that very often.
