Great location - under the Spice Market. Lots of free parking outside. Food options are many, and good value. Friendly service. Highly recommended.

This place is definitely worth the stop. The beer and food was perfect, but Deja definitely completed the experience. She was so knowledgeable and friendly and made us feel at home. :)

They have a decent selection of beers. The food was very good. Try the Philly egg rolls for an appetizer! I had the fish tacos and really enjoyed them. Restrooms are clean and the staff was funny and helpful.

In Waco with friends and had an awesome evening at Crickets. The service was great. The food for each of us was hot and tasty. The place is huge, so I'm sure it can get crowded on game days (and nights), but for this particular...More
