This place has it all: phenomenal beer selection, a wide variety of food, multiple tv's, pool hall/game room, did I mention lots of beer? We ate here two out of the four nights we stayed in town. Definitely recommended.

While visiting Waco, we stopped upstairs at Spice and had a great time there. Crickets was right downstairs, and recommended by the young lady at The register upstairs. So, on our way home we gave it a go. Very good choice. We had some tacos...More

Was on a bus tour and only had a short time for lunch. The cheeseburgers and fries were delicious, waitress was great, and food was served quickly. Interior was really cool old architecture. Lots of pool tables in the back area.

We had dinner here for 2. An appetizer, a glass of wine, a well drink, and 2 entrees. It was $42. I was so shocked. My vodka drink was $2.75. It’s like a time warp! The food was fine, nothing too amazing but fresh, fast...More

We stopped in one hot afternoon in May to cool off with some beer and shuffleboard. It wasn't very crowded - we got to visit with some of the locals. It was a fun place to spend the afternoon with some friendly people.

I have only been to Crickets a few times and it seems to be a place that people might go hang out and play pool and drink an alcoholic beverage of their choice than go to find the best food. My food was very average...More

First of all... the beer selection and the brussel sprouts appetizer were amazing and the fish taco was good. Everything else was pretty pathetic. The fries were ordered as a second appetizer and held under a heat lamp; they were cold and leathery when delivered....More
