Too much flour made... More

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.

"Poor Georges" used to be an A&W one of my flavorite memories. I must agree with every one and all their ratings.Librarybev gave "Poor Georges" only one star, I agree with that too. As I sopped up the last of my wonderful country gavy I saw that the plate had a Big BLACK NASTY crack. I am sorry to say... More

My husband and I have been patrons of Poor George's for many years, but we no longer are fans. The thing is that the restaurant itself has gone down hill. The carpet is disgusting, the ceiling is disgusting, and the tables are in such bad need of refinishing that they're even disgusting! When I go into a restaurant to eat,... More

We stopped here on our way out of town. The food was incredibly tasty with very large portions. This appears to be where a lot of locals eat. The service was great and very personable. The waitress knew most of the diner's names. We will go of we pass through yreka again.
