Waited to be sat for 40 plus mins waited for food for almost an hour. Disappointed I drove almost an hour to eat here and def will not come back - plus the waiter lied about not having chips for the chips and queso - funny how they had chips for other tables - crappy place

Found George ' s on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed! Great home style food and even better staff! You get exactly what I expected.....nothing fancy but everything you could ask for! Had the lunch portion chicken fried steak with mashed taters and a salad, my buddy had a hamburger steak covered with onions. Both were served quick, hot, and... More

This place was great! Great atmosphere for sports. Great food and drink specials, and very good prices. Don't let the outside of the building fool you. The whole experience was great and would definitely go back.

A must dining destination for anyone visiting Waco. This "hole in the wall", "down-home", small town cafe serves some of mom's favorites, including burgers, fries, onion rings, chicken fried steak, meat loaf, pork chops, roasted chicken, fried catfish, etc. George's has great daily, lunch, and dinner specials making it one of the best meal bargains in town, although it is...

Very nice and accommodating staff. We requested an easily accessible table, no problem. Our waitress, Jordan, was friendly & efficient. She immediately surmised our guests were a little hard of hearing, spoke a tad louder and was very patient. The half order of chicken fried steak was more than adequate, two side and lots of gravy (white & brown). Onion... More

After reading all the good reviews my daughter and I decided we had to try George's. I ordered the chicken fried steak. It was a lot of batter with a small piece of flavorless round steak. Sides were so-so, baked potato tasted left over and ceasar salad dressing was right out of the store shelf bottle. My daughter ordered the... More

The restaurant may not look like much but the food and service are outstanding. Our waitress informed us the specials and I decided to try the all you can eat catfish. I am not a big eater but the price was good so I went for it. I was not disappointed. The fish was quite tasty as well as the... More

A Waco icon, George’s is really more about nostalgia than the food, but if you’re looking for a smorgasbord of artery-clogging fried food – this is the place. (There ARE a few healthy options, like salads, but that’s not really why you go to George’s.) Every meal at George’s should begin with a basket of it’s fluffy little rolls (make... More
