Sports bar atmosphere with pool tables in the back and plenty of TVs. Menu is not extensive but the food is always good. Have a large list of beers to choose from for Waco.

Shawn, we're so sorry to hear your burger came out this way. We certainly strive to provide delicious food for all of our guests, and a burned burger is far beyond acceptable.

We invite you to come back in for a burger on the house next time you are in Waco. Just ask for the manager on duty and give him your information. We guarantee it will be cooked perfectly.

We hope to see you again soon for a burger and beers!

Thank you so much for your feedback. We are embarrassed to hear that service to your table was slow on your visit - we will address this immediately with our staff. We strive to provide a stellar experience for all guests and we invite you back in to give us another shot!

While our menu does include a few fried options, we also offer many non-fried menu items such as: entree-sized fresh salads with a choice of 6 dressings; from-scratch sandwiches; our infamous South Texas Ranch fajitas; 1/2 lb all-beef hot dog entrees; and many USDA ground chuck burgers piled high with fresh toppings.

We hope to see you again soon at Cricket's!
