Friendly service and fresh delicious flavours. We are returning customers who enjoy supporting local and eating authentic Mexican cuisine and they make a mean Margarita. My only complaint is that they are always out of or don't have fresh guacamole.

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