Amazing!

The "Best Chicken Fried Steak EVER" is exactly that. The half portion alone covers the plate - crispy, crunchy and full of flavor... It really was to die for! The garlic mashed potatoes were wonderful as was the salsa, chips, salad, tea....and dessert.. Topped with really good service with a... read more

I recently booked George's catering for a reception--heavy hors-d'oeuvres--for 30 people. The menu included spinach quesadillas, small sandwiches, a vegetable tray, a fruit tray, and tea. There was plenty of food for everyone. Will use again.

George's has a friendly staff ready to take your order. Daily specials Monday thru Friday that can't be beat. Family friendly, and ample parking. They cater any type of event, with the same wonderful food you get at the restaurant.

Sooooo many cars in the lot I almost didn't go in, but surprisingly it's way bigger than it looks. Ate the chicken fried steak. It was good no doubt but I think they took a quarter sized piece of meat and beat the heck out of that sucker and beefed it up with breading. Here for 2 weeks so I'll... More

Georges has been in Waco for many years and has always been one of the best places to eat and drink in Waco. Food is always good and priced well not to mention the fantastic service provided.

Shortly after we ordered the manager came over and introduced himself after hearing from our server we were out of towners. Very nice. After our... More

This is without doubt the best bar on Waco. It has a great atmosphere with a wide variety of friendly patrons. The staff are the best I have had the pleasure of being served by. They are very efficient and friendly. If you go to Waco you MUST go to George's

George's catered our family reunion this weekend. Not only were they prompt, the meal was hot, abundant and delicious. We were extremely pleased. They also get an A+ for friendliness and courteous service.
