My son is moving to Waco in just a couple of weeks to start a new job. I am totally unfamiliar with that area. What are the surrounding towns/cities I should be looking for when reading the reviews etc.? Also, what are the good eats in and around that area. He will be working in McGregor and living in the Woodway/Waco area.

Besides restaurants, what is the good shopping for quality/variety and prices as well. Whether it be large supermarkets or smaller specialty stores. I know it is the middle of the state, but he loves fish/seafood. Will it be available in the stores too? Of course beef is number one with him too!

Thanks for you help.
