A Great Find in an Area Barren of Restaurants

We pulled off of I-25 for a break, and found this, almost by accident. Spotted it from the gas station nearby. I think their "marketing department" could have done better, since it appears that more than just us, was expecting an "eat in your car" experience, based on the name. That said, it is a... read more

As usual, we used Trip Advisor to help us find a place to eat. We weren't sure about Georges as we thought that it was a drive in in the sense of sitting in your car and eating and we didn't want to do that. It is however a drive in in the sense that you have to drive there... More

On the way to Lathrop State Park I stopped here to taste George's green chile after reading reviews of this restaurant. Arrived a little past noon on Wednesday and the place was packed and I didn't want to wait, so I just ordered a bowl to go. (12oz) I sat outside to eat it with some crackers. I really enjoyed...

The wife and I visited Walsenburg on a Friday for lunch. I had the large burger with extra corned beef. Real fries too. Not bad at all! Wife ordered fish and chips, not special very out of the freezer like. Recommend sticking with more traditional Diner fare. Very small place though and very packed for lunch on a Friday. Could...

My husband and I were traveling north on I-25 and pulled off to find some lunch. What a treat to find George's Drive Inn right off the highway! The place didn't look like much from the outside, but we could tell from all the cars in the parking lot that it was a popular stop. We luckily got one of... More

Stopped here for a quick lunch on the road. It's a quaint, unassuming, classic café with awesome food. No frills, just good eats. I had the green chile burger & fries, which is served open-faced and smothered. Awesome. You can get double patties if you want. My son had the chile dog, which was served the same way. You can...

Enjoyed very good service and an excellent breakfast. You can't go wrong by taking the time to stop and enjoy a breakfast burrito, biscuits and gravy or another hearty menu option. The service was excellent and outside seating is also offered.
