The Baylor Roll was delicious. It had 5 types of sauce on it. I liked that the roll had some crunch to it. The roll was $8.99 and came with crab and masago on cali. It was very filling. It was nice to find a sushi bar while out shopping in the Marketplace in Waco. The service was quick just... More

This is the second time I've gone in for bubble tea only to find they don't have boba! Why advertise bubble tea if you never have it???

Wako Roll is one of those places which is just ordinary. Not good - not bad just average. We had two Bibimbap Bowls with white rice. We have been somewhat spoiled but having some excellent Korean restaurants close to our home so these were lacking. Although the bibimbap bowls were certainly eatable there was just not snap to make you... More

Like any Trip Advisor aficionado I did my homework and read the reviews before dining here. I took the advice and ordered Beef Bulgogi. The best thing on my plate was the fried rice, which was actually very good! There was plenty of food on the plate: large portions of beef, rice, salad, brocolli, topped with a grilled pineapple ring... More

We returned to this restaurant because our previous visit was fun. The restaurant features a good sushi selection, as well as an extensive Korean menu. I had previously had the kim chi stew with pork. It was good. This time, however, the pork was all fat and gristle, while my wife had to hunt for the chicken in her chicken... More

This is a Japanese-Korean eatery. The Baylor and their rolls are ok compared the once we had. I don't think they use the right sticky rice and it's just not seasoned right. The chicken teriyaki meat was not well cooked so beware. The beef teriyaki was good though. The servers looked tired and it was only lunchtime! I won't go... More

When I have a hankering for Asian food, I usually go to Wako Roll. They have a Baylor special that has 3 delicious cooked sushi rolls. Very delicious. The prices are great, too. It's quiet at lunch. I hope not too many people discover it! Just kidding.

My husband, grandson and I visited recently. I so enjoyed the rib taco. It was a little sweet and like a Korean Rib. The taco itself was thin and tasty. My husband got a grilled chicken. My grandson enjoyed Sushi that looked delicious and fresh. We did not care for the bubble drink. It tasted as if tapioca was in... More

We are big fans of Wako Roll. Having been to Korea multiple times I can attest the the authenticity of their Korean food. The Dolsot (hot stone pot) Bibimbap is fantastic and very close to what I've had in Seoul though lately they have been putting a little iceberg lettuce in it which I don't recall ever having seen in...

Delicious asian restaurant. Wish it was a little more, ummm organized. When we ate here, there was some extra supplies in site and just felt like the manger was "messy". The staff was friendly, but mostly interested in their own conversations. Food was good.
