The burgers were excellent! We both had the Bucs Burger - fresh, loaded and both fries and chips were great as the potato choices. The manager/owner stopped over twice during our visit. Our waiter was very attentive and willing to please our visit.

Gecko State Road 70, the Pot roast and SW chicken bowl were tasty. Jordan our server was Very efficient with friendly service, and she was super busy, but handled it well. The atmosphere (sports bar) with baseball/football is fun. The prices are moderate and we were happy with everything!

I normally love Geckos and go for the Monday burger special and drinks.

The happy hour two for one is all day every day. Today... More

Great burgers. The homemade chips are addicting, be careful. All menu items are prepared fresh. Watch for the burger special, each location has it a different day. Well worth it! Juat a great fun place for lunch or drinks and food after work.
