Best buddies Mike Quillen and Mike Gowan's local restaurant chain Gecko’s Grill & Pub, which specializes in “secret concoction” cocktails such as Gator Bowls and Fish Bowls as well as fun, alcohol-absorbing foods, celebrates its 21st year in business Friday with a barbecue bash at its main restaurant at The Landings.
“We started Gecko’s as a little neighborhood bar and pub, focusing on fresh fare, and a strong hospitality quotient," Quillen said. "Our guests are our friends, and our employees are our heroes. We believe in the community, and we live, work, and play here, too. We are inviting our friends to come out so we can say thank you, enjoy some barbecue, and help us celebrate.”
