The quality of the food was very good. The salsas were not good though. I was glad they had regular bottled hot sauce at least. The food was great though.

Went here for dinner one night since it was rated fairly well online. The staff are friendly enough, but I found it a bit odd that we were informed where the water was and to help ourselves when we were first greeted.

If you like Mexican food you will like the Lazy Gecko. Good simple food at great prices. The Burrito is big enough to share.

Great service, friendly and cheery. We all had big burritos, they were very good and at a good price. It was a welcomed meal after a big hike.
