The Blackened shrimp Caesar wrap with house chips is amazing! Always something on the menu to fill the hunger and quench the thirst. Great staff and management that is visible and helpful. You can tell this place is locally owned and managed with a team approach. Great place to watch the games, bring the family or couples can hang out around the bar. Parking is easy and pool tables make it a fun night out.

Absolutely the best Wings ever! Extra crispy and the fries are great too. A nice Sports Bar to watch a game at the clientele are friendly also.

I can't go in this place anymore. I keep giving it chances, but it's just so bad... and never gets any better. I sure wish a good restaurant would come here to Palmer Ranch.

Geckos is a good sports/neighborhood bar with above average food and selection. Good beer on tap is a double plus. Service is normally good, although they can get quite busy, especially if there's a big game on. This is one of our "can't go wrong" go-to places.

What a fun place to eat! We ordered the Nacho El Grande Platter, the Chicken Thumbs, Key Lime Pie and the Snicker's dessert.
Our food was delivered hot and fresh. The wait staff was very nice, but our waiter was not very attentive on this 1st visit. However, we will return!
