The lamb shis-ka-bob is really good. I chose that based on other reviews. It's a low key casual place, with a bar, but the food is good and so is the price.

the food was good and the value was fine. the servers treated people very well if they knew you and not very well if they didn't. it was pretty clear to see that they catered to their regulars.

We went to George's because another restaurant we had planned to go to was so busy there was an hour wait. Since we've been wanting to try George's for a while, we thought this would be a good opportunity. However, we were very disappointed with what we received in comparison to the very high prices.

I grew up in Fresno and now live in Monterey county so whenever I visit I always have to stop by and have something from George's. Their shish-kebab sandwich is absolutely DELICIOUS!! Along with the rice pilaf, you just can't beat it!! All their food is good so if you are in town you really should stop and try them.

Charbroiled steaks... and you can watch. Lots of Mediterranean options here, too. Food was good and service was very attentive and friendly. Try the blue cheese dressing if it's your thing.

Delicious Armenian cuisine! Definitely try the bulgar. Both the lamb loin chops and the moussaka were fantastic!
