Iconic Greasy Spoon

This place is awesome. If you're not looking for healthy food... Want a side of sweet and sour park with your burger? Chow mien? This is the place. It's iconic, but it's not for everyone.

My fathers been coming here since he was a young adult and brought me and my sisters here as kids for years when we would pass thru from Campbell River. George's is in the Guinness world record book for remembering the most orders without writing them down, the father George I think still works in the back but his wife... More

Nothing fancy but the best food around. Actually looks dingy from the outside. No sit down. This is real take out! Good food - good prices! If you are a princess who is expecting fancy- skip this place! This is a local gem that we have all been going to since our teen years! You just call your order in,... More

If you're into a grease-fest then this is the place. We went based on previous reviews thinking this would be a great place for a burger…it was so bad we actually thought we had the wrong place. For some reason we assumed the burgers were made fresh but when we pulled up we noticed thawed ready-made patties you can get... More

In the Comox Valley and feel like a good burger and fries? Time to check out George's Food Bar on Comox Road in Courtenay. The cheese burgers are delicious; however, the combo burgers are great too. Old fashioned fries are good, although if you love more than one package of ketchup you pay 5 cents per extra. If you are... More

George's Food Bar is the go to place for a great burger in the Comox Valley and has been for more than 40 years. All of the burgers are cooked to order. The onions are grilled. When placing an order George or his son merely acknowledges the order with a nod of their head. Nothing is written down no matter... More

No place to sit, like a food truck without wheels, but the food is awesome. Don't worry if it appears your order hasn't been heard it has been. Enjoy the food! (that's what you're here for)

By far the best burgers and fries EVER. Growing up in the comox valley I would treat myself every once in awhile. Service is fast and so worth it. Every time I come back home this is a must have before I leave
