Had lunch here. Ordered a chicken fajita quesadilla. Friend order wings, " lightly sauced". Quesadilla ok, but a tiny cup of guacamole and one of sour cream were extras for an added cost of $4.00! The wings were well flavored, but almost inedible. Dry, tough...More

My granddaughters favorite. It had a little bit of everything you were hungry for. The staff was especially friendly.

Had a great chicken sandwich and 512 Pecan Nitro here last week while passing through. The bartender, Adam was super knowledgeable and great fun. The place is interesting. The bar itself is clearly old and huge. Looks like a nice hangout.

Woohoo! That's what we like to hear. If there's one thing we know, it's brisket (and beer). Next time you're in town, don't forget to stop by again! See you then.

We make it a point to stop at Crickets for lunch if we're passing through Waco. Their burgers are fantastic! Great atmosphere - and they offer gluten free buns! Not too far from the Brazos River and pretty close to I35. Highly recommend stopping in...More

I'll really have to give this place another shot, but our first impression was really poor. We cam in for an after dinner beer and found Cricket's via TripAdvisor, impressed by the huge beer selection. Three in our group ar what you'd call Colorado Beer...More

I visited the Crickets Grill tonight with two of my friends. The mozzarella sticks were amazing! They didn't have sweet tea???(this is the south). Good atmosphere and nice staff. Food was good and reasonably priced!
