Poor George's was recommended to us as a b'fast spot during our drive home from California-it was a welcome treat from all of the chain restaurants. I had the pancakes (huge!) which were okay, but the best were my delicious poached eggs and toast, and my husband devoured his b'fast platter that had... read more

We went there for breakfast at 9:30 am, there was one other person there getting ready to leave, we were seated, and brought menus and coffee. We then waited for fifteen minutes with no one coming to take our order, so we got up and went to the register. The cashier looked at us surprised, then looked over at the... More

We stopped in for breakfast. Carol had the eggs over easy with bacon and a side of biscuits and gravy. The eggs were a little too greasy, but tasty and the 4 huge slices of thick bacon were delicious. The biscuits and gravy filled a giant plate to overflowing. But, the flavor was average at best. Too much flour made... More

This place was recommened to us by Heidi, the front office staff at the Holiday Inn Express. At first we almost did not stop. It looks marginal from the outside----the type of place we would not normally stop at for food. But we are sure glad we made the effort. We were greeted by a great smile by the hostess... More

If you're not in a hurry, hurry on in here. The food is worth waiting for. The price is right. The folks are folksy. Service is consistently good.

My husband had been there befor but I had not, not to many good breakfast places in Yreka. I think we found a new breakfast place in town for us. This is just a home town diner, nothing fancy. The food was good home cookin and the price was very reasonable and the service was fast. The staff knew their... More
