Roadside surprise!

Place was packed, nice workers who were busting their humps. Looked for a place when driving thru the town, nothing looked appetizing - right as we were hopping on the interstate we saw Georges. Had fried mushrooms..my husband said they were great. We both had a chefs salad ( that was risky since... read more

I can't say enough good things about this place! It's a local favorite and even though we were not locals the staff and owner welcomed us right in! Great qualities are the fast and efficient service, delicious food, and friendly faces. The owner himself treated us just like we were part of the community. I was impressed by his kindness... More

Great lunch spot in Walsenburg! They are known for their chili burger. My daughter ordered chili burger with red chili,which comes smothered with chili and a side of fries. Delicious! I opted to have a bowl of red chili with onions and it was very good, but a bit on the lukewarm side. I am beginning to wonder if warm... More

This place is wonderful. Food is top notch. It gets very very busy and chances are you will have to wait to be seated. I guess the only wish I have is they expand the dining area to fit more people. Friendly and fast service, and food you will remember.

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 great busy little local place... 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
