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.

I ate at Georges today for the first time. I've read good things on here about the place and i had heard good things, and i must say I'm a little disappointed. The Chinese was pretty tasty but the burgers were average. My friend didn't want to finish his ate finding a fairly large piece of bone in his patty.... More

The pic above is NOT of George's, which is actually just a take-out window! You order and THEN they make your food while you wait, and it's not a long wait. Very efficient service and absolutely amazing burgers! (Try the combo) We love this little place for take out meals :)

A burger with taste. A tradition that never gets old. Grilled bun, fried onions processed cheese. and flavour like Gramma used to make. Good fries. The service is like the soup Nazi's from Sienfields sitcom but you can overlook that because of the flavour.

George's "joint" is a little hole in the wall next to a pizza place. NOT the place pictured! I have to have a minimum of 100 characters so here goes - if you don't mind standing outside on the sidewalk for the best burger in Courtenay, that's all the atmosphere you'll experience @ George's.

It's not a secret to home-town Comox Valley folks but perhaps is to those passing through town. If you're looking for simplicity and perfection at it's best when it comes to burgers, look no further than his little take-away joint. As a child, it was always such a treat to charge over to Georges while the folks were busy with... More

If you want a delicious burger, freshly made to order then this is where you want to go. I have had the Chinese food a couple of times but and it is good however, combo with cheese is my fav choice.

If you are looking for a real good old fashioned burger, fries & a shake, this is the place. The combo is sort of a stand-up Tomahawk burger (those who know, know). If you don't mind that George, or whoever he is inside the window, doesn't really speak except to tell you how much your meal is, then good. If... More
