Geckos has some great food, boom boom tacos, tilapia,bison burgers something for everyone. The staff are friendly and welcoming, they must have a good training programme. They have specials such as Monday $5 burger, Friday $10 fish and chips.It is a sports bar but you don't feel overpowered by the tvs

Don't overlook the All You Can Eat Barbecue at Geckos on Route 70 in Bradenton. I am a connoisseur if good barbecue and THIS IS GOOD BARBECUE!! The plate comes with tender, succulent pulled pork and your choice of two sides for $9.99. Burger Monday is awesome but don't overlook Barbecue Tuesday!!

We have eaten here a number of times. Food is good.minday nights they have a $5.00 hamburger, which is huge. Place is always busy. I've have everything from a burger to a salmon dinner. Drinks are two for one all the time. They have many TV'S going all the time. Great place for families or just to unwind..

Waitress wasn't very good. Took forever to get her to come back after we got our food. Understaffed. My burger was over cooked.

Every Geckos has its own ambiance. This particular one is more like a "Cheers" atmosphere where many are regulars and everyone knows your name. The food there is very, very good.
