Gecko’s Grill, Oliver, B.C.

It has been a while since we were here for lunch and, to be truthful, this restaurant has suffered some really bad comments from the locals in previous years. I am here to tell you to forget all that. The food is excellent and the portions are unbelievable.

Last week when my best beau (translation: husband) and I went for lunch it was, of course, filled with golfers but we found a table. Don ordered the Philly Steak and Cheese sandwich and I ordered the Mushroom Swiss Burger. We both ordered a Pepsi.

Out it came and our eyes were wide open….wider! Don ‘s sandwich was loaded with meat, onions and cheese. It was huge. He was only able to consume one half of this giant. Fries came with it but only a few were eaten.

Mine must have had a pound of mushrooms in it (okay, but lots and lots), the cheese was really generous and man- oh- man was this delicious. It was all I could do to eat one half of this as well. Just a few of the fries and I am so sorry we couldn’t eat this all.

The food is so much better than it has ever been and our server, Cheryl, was mighty awesome. They were running it was so busy but she forgot no one in her area.

Well done, Gecko’s. We will certainly return.

P.S. Can I have the rest of my burger and fries? Oh, Don says he wants his Philly Steak and Cheese as well.
