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.

My wife and I enjoy our visits to Gecko's - especially for lunch. The lunch specials are reasonably priced and large. My mother-in-law, who doesn't care for a lot of restaurants, always enjoys going there. The meals are prepared and served quickly.

My wife and I have eaten here probably a half dozen times. Sometimes lunch, sometimes dinner. We've always had good service, and the "Mexican" food is pretty good. It's not wonderfully better than most Americanized Mexican food places, but it's good and the place seems nice and clean. I will admit that I do not care for their chili relleno,... More

You'll be glad you stopped in to eat at geckos. They offer a great atmosphere And decent food at a good value. This is a family owned business where the proprietor works alongside is young adult employees and acts as a good mentor. He gets to know his patrons and appreciates their business. Highly recommend.

The decor is cheap and it felt like a cafeteria, the service was not very good as we waited for quite some time just to order. If you are looking for a beer or margarita, they are not available. The food, poor. Probably the worst chile relleno I have had and the enchiladas consisted of melted cheese, sauce and a... More
