Wow. This place is in Waco? Very nice selection, with beers from all over the world. The bar and tap set-up reminds me of Flying Saucer. Friendly and prompt service. A bit too dark; maybe turn up the lights a bit. Had tostadas andd fried pickles, and they were perty tastybut not mind-blowing. Recommended if youíre in Waco.

Around 100 taps at this bar and grill that has aged over the years. A decent selection of food but both burgers at our table were undercooked. Service was decent.

Crickets wow, Tons of beers on tap here, service is always slow at the bar unfortunately, especially on a busy night. Near some good eats such as Ninfas.

This place is a huge warehouse with decent enough decor but you can tell it is more for Baylor University then anything else. This is due to the 9 pool tables, pair of fooseball tables and shuffleboard. The food was decent and the service was good. I wish they toasted my bun though (pulled pork). The beer selection is pretty good but you can get most of it anywhere. They had too many macros for my liking and Rolling Rock was part of their East Coast sampler? Seriously? Definitely worth the stop if you are passing through Waco.

This bar used to be, and should be, better.
Their bar has a lot of taps, but little real selection. If it is from an industrial beer maker then they have it. They are especially light beer heavy.
They have some good craft brews available, but Waco is a light beer town, so the kegs get old and funky. There are a few good imports as well (Maredsous), but they are also often stale. I had to report them to the NB Beer Ranger for having stale NB beer. That got the lines cleaned real quick!
The staff know next to nothing about beer, they seem to specialize in making Cosmos and Jagerbombs. The service is slow, slow, slow.
Their food has taken a noticeable turn for the worse; their food was tasty before, but now tastes like Applebeeís or TGIFridayís.
For good burgers I would recommend Georgeís here in town. For great beer and service, go to the Dancing Bear Pub. It is a shame, Crickets has the look right and good facilities, but the execution is all wrong.

Stopped in on a Sunday on my way back to Fort Worth. The place is in a big warehouse that was a little difficult to find the front. Big open interior with lots of pool tables and space. Very large tap wall; the sign at the time said that they had 107 draught beers, with several other empty taps. Large selection of Texas beers, including Austin ones that Dallas does not get. I had a bacon cheeseburger which was pretty good. It was a nice venue in a beer wasteland.

Donít evaluate a place because of the city it is in, evaluate the place on its own merit. The food isnít great, the service isnít great, the prices arenít great, but it does have a farily large selection of draft and bottle beers.

See comment from Legion, RE: WACO.
If you have stopped in this city, you have only yourself to blame.
post funeral, daughter asks size of beer:
"uh, I dunno" - what?
"uh, itís BIG"
Not knowing what a pint is .. thatís knuckle dragging stupid.

The highmarks come mostly for the fact that this place is in the armpit we call Waco. If you find yourself in poor little Waco, then you have to hit this place. Lots of good regionals on draught. In fact, the bulk of the selection is draught. I had an above average burger and the waitresses were typical beautiful Texas co-eds.
