The food here isn't stellar, but it's solidly good and an excellent value in a nice, relatively quiet restaurant with great service.

We went to Gecko's quite a few years ago and returned recently as guests of some friends who say it is their "favorite". I was more interested in the friendship that the food when we arrived however when we walked in I was immediately surprised that the interior had a fresh new look and colors. We were greeted promptly and... More

This is a fantastic local restaurant. The service is EXCELLENT. I wasn't expecting the food to be as good as it was--the food was DELICIOUS!! The agua de horchata was the best I've had outside of Mexico. Give this restaurant a try!

Never ate here before so we decided to give it our best Trip Advisor once over. First thing we notices is "How do we get into the place?" You have to walk around the building from the parking lot just to fine a way in. But once we entered it was a nice clean (albeit stark decor) restaurant. Not the... More

I had not been to Gecko's in a number of years but noticed it was still in business and so we decided to stop in for dinner. Not that we expected anything negative but we found a wonder waiter and great food! Best chips and salsa from a Mexican restaurant that I think I've had in Salt Lake metro area.... More

Gecko's is a family friendly Mexican restuaraunt that is easy to find. The food is really good and the service is excellent. We have never had to wait and the staff is great about letting us pick a table tat will allow us to strategically position our kids. I've never had a meal here that I didn't like. A number... More

We enjoy a good Mexican restaurant like everybody else. I was a little nervous after hearing mixed reviews about Gecko, but we were invited by friends to try it out. There were 6 in our group and our server was very good to ask each person how spicy they wanted their salsa. I ordered the chimichanga plate to split with... More

Food was the worst Mexican I've ever had. Service was 'doing the best they could' this is where old people go to eat mexican at 4:30 in the afternoon so they can get home and get to bed. No Liquor sales, you cannot get a Beer unless it starts with Root. Someple please call Robert Irvine from Restaurant Impossible, this... More

Food is very bland. If you want non-spicy food, that is Mexican in the loosest sense of the word, this is the place for you!

The service here is great. They make you feel so welcome and valued as customers. Their food is fresh and really excellent. They will go out of their way to serve it the way you want it.
