If you’re unable to make a trip to Waco, Tex., to check out Chip and Joanna Gaines’ new restaurant, don’t panic: The social media community has got your back.

It’s no surprise the HGTV stars’ Magnolia Table is very Instagrammable, and the first customers to dine there have not been shy about showing off their love for the highly-anticipated brunch eatery.

Since opening for business on Feb. 26, Fixer Upper fans have filled the tables, giving first look at the interior of the restaurant (including the bathrooms!) and what all of the delicious food on the menu looks like.

A month later the couple celebrated the official grand opening on March 26 with a special event where people could try delicious-looking samples and snap a few photos in front of an old school car filled with balloons, parked in front of the restaurant.

Guests could also get cupcakes from the Silos Baking Co. truck, which offered two special flavors for the day: toasted coconut and carrot cake.

Based on diners’ photos and reviews, the restaurant has not disappointed.

“It was as good as we anticipated!” one user posted. “Every detail from the friendly staff to delicious food and beautiful restored building exceeded our expectations.”


PEOPLE’s new special edition, The Best of HGTV, all about your favorite renovation and real estate stars, is available now on Amazon and wherever magazines are sold.

Another diner posted a bathroom selfie, reiterating that “every little detail @magnoliatable is Instagram worthy.”

“Joanna and team, you guys did an incredible job,” she added. “I’m so proud to have an amazing place like this in Waco. Anyone want to meet for biscuits and jam?”

Fans can also see the stars’ handprints in the cement outside the restaurant.

Even the matches are adorable.

Remember to look down! The floors are also picture-perfect.

The quote “Where everyone has a seat at the table” is included in many different aspects of the restaurant, including the walls, coffee mugs and menu.

But most importantly, the food exceeded people’s expectations.

“From the lemon lavender donut holes, the avocado toast, eggs benedict and juice flight to how gorgeous the entire place is (cuz duh, Jojo @joannagaines) to seeing @chipgaines & his sons Drake and Duke walk through and eat at their restaurant,” one person posted. “All so AMAZING.”
