Best burgers on the island

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... read 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

My family found it extremely greasy. It also had a strange taste wether they used really old oil or what. The staff was friendly but it was totally grosse. I usually do not write reviews but feel they need to.

Normally I would drive right past a place like this, but having heard lots of positive comments from locals, we decided to give it a try. You drive up to this 'drive in' but don't wait for the carhop! You will need to go to the window to place your order from a limited menu of hamburgers, fries and basic... More

Tried George's as we love a good burger. Not only was the order wrong but the grease was way too much. Fries underdone. Was not impressed.

George's take-out used to be located next to an old well-used pub. The pub was demolished years ago but George's carries on because of its loyal customers. There is nothing amazing here - just consistent quality and quantity and ease of access. PS. The George burger (whatever they call it) is legend.
