We stopped in for a snack and drinks on a Sunday afternoon. We tried the cheese fries, soft pretzels and fried pickles. All were yummy! We thought our drinks were covered on the happy hour special but discovered they weren't when the check came. Our sweet server gave us the lower price. She was... read more

We rolled in at 8pm with a family of four, hoping the kitchen was still open. Thank God it was! Great burgers and fresh cut fries. Unbelievable beer selection on a massive wall of taps. Great games and live music. When in Waco check this place out.

Do NOT waste your time and money at Crickets. The employees refused to let me speak with the manager about their behavior! This place was very unprofessional! My husband was entertaining here and the bartender refused to serve me, after a Baylor student asked him not to. Every employee was very rude and condescending; they refused to let me speak... More

I've never been to the restaurant portion of Cricket's, but the bar is great. Great innovative drinks as well as the classics. A great atmosphere to play games like pool and ping-pong with friends.

This is a good place to have some drinks and entertainment. Notice, I did not mention food...limited menu, and what I did have which was some appetizers, it was nothing to rave about. The beer selection was great. I think I heard 107 beers on tap, with local ones pointed out on the menu. The entertainment and TV's were great.... More

We had drinks here one day and came back the next evening for dinner. We only ate appetizers but they were good. Boneless wings were disappointing. The best part of the restaurant is the multiple pool tables, shuffle board, 4 player pac man and many more games. Definitely a good place to go for drinks and some fun!

Visited Cricket's twice during our trip to Waco. Burgers were just the right size and seasoned to perfection. Queso was also very yummy. Went back on Saturday prior to the Oklahoma/Baylor football game. Played pool and watched the early game on the televisions. Good service - will definitely return!

We didn't eat here but sat outside on the balcony while enjoying the different beers which are offered. Lots of pool tables.

Great food and lots of craft beer! Any kind of beer you could possibly want they have so many choices. Lots of football on tv. I would definitely visit Waco again.
