We have frequented Gecko's restaurants (there are 5 in the area) for many years, and have always found their food and drink selections to accomodate all tastes.The meals are always well prepared, freshly made and of excellent value. The management and staff are extremely friendly and accomodating, and make all customers feel at ease. These restaurants could be categorized as Sports Bars, but are much more than that. I have recommended Gecko's to friends and family - and even strangers looking for somewhere to eat!

When my family is in the mood for good chicken wings like this past weekend, we go to Gecko's Grill & Pub. Why? 1) good size wings, not those small ones everyone else serves. 2) Great chunky blue cheese mixed with a little sour cream. 3)good variety of ways to order them. 4) good atmosphere & staff while you enjoy your wings. Like spicy? Order them "explosive BBQ". Be sure and order their homemade chips while your there. Everything else on the menu is good, from wraps to their 1992 salad. -Enjoy.....

Food isn't just food to me, it's a passion. When I want good chicken wings I go to Gecko's. What makes them so good is they're larger than their competitors wings and the quality of their blue cheese served with them is the best. The secret to their blue cheese: Take extra chunky blue cheese salad dressing and mix it with a little sour cream. I also highly recommend their homemade potato chips with ranch dressing for dipping. Great food, good service is why I gave only 4 out of 5. All in all you'll be happy with your meal.
