We went to Waco to see the silos. When parked asked the attendant where should we eat. He sent us here and said we would not be disappointed. We weren't. Great burgers and tastee tator tots. Try them with mustard. Had a pemento cheese burger I know but talk about good drinks are cold and the pool tables level. Check... More

I ordered the loaded fries. They came with a whopping amount of bacon and chives. Totally delicious. My sister-in-law had the charred Brussel sprouts. She said they were delicious and after taking a bite, I could have eaten her whole plate. They were incredible. The menu choices were awesome and different. Wish they hadn't have run out of the brisket.... More

The tempura battered cauliflower and charrred brussel sprouts paired with Irish ale were just what we needed to refuel for more Spice Village shopping! Great selection of beer on tap with attentive bartenders.

What else can you ask for when taking the family out for a bite? Good food, great service. Billiards, shuffleboard, some arcade games, live music at certain times. My eleven year old son loves the place.

We were in Waco for a short get away. Stopped in here for some lunch and a beer. The lunch was good. The server was sweet and she did a great job. I just about choked when I got the check and the glass of draft domestic beer was almost 6 and a half dollars. Wow.

When you are in Waco, you must visit crickets! My husband and I like to go have a few drinks and relax while visiting Waco. We have never eaten any food, but it looks like it has a great variety of a menu/bar fare. The drinks are reasonably priced, and the staff is great! Will return when in Waco!!!
