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.

Stopped looking for a place for breakfast. It was wonderful. The waitress was very friendly and so were the other guests. A great friendly atmosphere. The food was cooked just right not greasy. Keeping this one on our to stop list.

We ate breakfast here while traveling. The food was fresh, good and very satisfying. the service was excellent. This is obviously a favorite of locals as they streamed in at a steady rate and every table was filled. This restaurant is small so you may have to wait for a table.

George's has the best hamburgers in town. If you grew up in the 50's and 60's,these hamburgers will take you back to your favorite hamburger joint. Everything is good at this restaurant. The only thing I don't like about George's is they are only open for breakfast and lunch.

This place had been recommended to us by friends who love having breakfast there. We were there for lunch and ordered chili burgers. The burgers themselves were fine but they were topped with a processed cheese slice and bland chili which were both a disappointment. This area of Colorado is known for its flavorful chili verde and this was just... More

George's Italian sausage is great. Really like the pancakes and the french toast too. The salsa they serve with the eggs is a really good too. Had the biscuits and gravy is good as well. Great breakfast value, wonderful food, and large portions. Had lunch there once and the burger and fries was good too.

My family has been coming to this place for years as we travel to and from New Mexico and it's a must stop. It had been a few years, so I read the reviews first- and appreciated the advice to go early. We got there at 11 to have the green chile burger and by the time we left there... More

Given the limited options south of Pueblo, this cafe is a useful stop off the highway. There are local paintings and photographs on the walls.The owner is nice and enjoys talking with everyone. The locals there make the place friendly and cheerful. I had the green chile burger. The sauce tasted good, but the meat was fairly gristly. I asked... More

Small place everyone should go to! I love this place & I go to eat there at least monthly. I love the battered mushrooms and fried cauliflower. The best hamburger with cheese and chili strips ever. Great desserts, too. Also shakes and malts. It is a must to eat here. Be prepared to wait for a table, but not for... More
