Welcome to KirbyG's,(R) a cook-to-order family owned diner that began in 2008. We've trademarked a new name since then but we still strive to make your experience enjoyable.

Fun place, outgoing servers

I enjoy coming to Kirby G's because it's locally owned, has a cute atmosphere and very friendly servers. The burgers are good, but nothing over the moon and it's a little pricey for what you are getting. Everything is priced separately (burger, sides). The slicers are a nice option, but they... read more

This place use to be great. Voted best burgers in town, service was good and place was fun to visit. It has really fallen off the past year or so. Service sucks, food has taken a tumble especially the salad and it's not what it use to be. Several of my friends use to eat there regularly now they won't... More

After years of hearing rave reviews and wanting to try this place out- especially with my love for a burger, I finally stopped in with my daughter. She was just as excited. Unfortunately, we did not leave with that same excitement. There was nothing special about my burger- at all. i ordered a bacon cheeseburger, but The burger was tough... More

My son and I eat at Kirby G's a few times a month. The atmosphere is relaxed with a 50's feel. The food is tasty and the staff is friendly. We love Kirby G's!

Really nice folks - the burger has won a few awards and the place is set up to be like a late fifties type eatery. Just off the square in McDonough GA.

My husband and I love this restaurant! It is a cute little 50's themed diner that serves some of the best burgers I have ever had. They also have delicious dessert options and other entrees as well, but the burgers are to die for. Highly recommended!

Had a 2/3 lb burger, I think it was "The Duke". Two patties, cheese, bacon, onion petals. Flavor of the burger was nothing special. Sweet potato tots with marshmallow dip was good. Wouldn't make a special trip to go again.

Nice restaurant with great music from the 50s and 60s! Wide selection of burgers to chose from. If the area is busy, you may have a hard time finding a parking space. Do not order the fried pickles. Would be great if they were small slices.
