Extensive menu

There are a lot of choices on the menu, and portions were generous. The food we got was very good! I will eat here again when I am in Walsenburg visiting family.

Travellers eat a traveller pizza. The smell is alluring and the pizza is delicious. Choose between eat in or take out.

we always refer to Trip advisor for places to eat in places new to us. We like dives, diners, hole-in-wall, family owned places. This place felt like an old DQ, which didn't scare us off, especially with the reviews in has received. We were seated for lunch, the place was full. The food was typical greasy spoon, service ok.

George's is a great place to stop for lunch when traveling between Santa Fe and Denver. Unless you have a massive appetite, consider splitting the chile burger with bacon and cheese. The green chile has both flavor and a bite. Onion rings were hot but we have had better as the batter is a little thick. Good, friendly service. Eavesdropping... More

We held a birthday breakfast for my husband at George's Restaurant and the food was delicious, the service was outstanding! Even though we had a party of 12 with no prior warning, the staff was amazingly efficient and friendly! We love George's!!

Nothing fancy, but an excellent cafe. Clean, cheerful, welcoming. Nice service with no fuss. Coffee, eggs, bacon, toast, and hashbrowns the way they used to be. Inexpensive.

This gem has been serving great food with great service for generations. Consistency is key, and Tony and his crew nail it EVERY time. A local hot spot Tues-Sat. For the best breakfast and lunch in town. The smothered chili burger in green is famous in the area, the fried chicken is second to none! With an assortment of classic... More

My wife and I were starving en route to Alamosa from Denver. We saw this place, hesitated, but were hungry enough to take a chance. The wind was howling, and dust was flying. We had no idea if this was the last restaurant we would see, so we went inside. We were very glad we did. The service and food... More
