Metmby brother and his wife for late lunch. Parking is a premium but once in the rest is good. I had a cheeseburger with grilled onions, everyone else just had a hamburger.

My family has been eating at George 's for 20+ years. It has been, and still is, the best place for casual burgers and fries in Walnut Creek. The burgers are always cooked to order, as ordered; if you ask for it medium rare, you get it medium rare every time. The fries are reliably hot and crispy. Not much... More
