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.

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 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

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
