A Waco staple

George's has been around forever, and their food has been consistently good during that time. It is the go-to place for after Baylor games, at the Big O Deck, which is the bar area that serves the "Big O" beer (which is a big frosted goblet). Lots of TVs. Their fajitas, hamburgers, fried fish, and... read more

We've eaten here twice and I'm yet to see what all the Hipp is about. Average food nothing outstanding, noisey, takes forever to get your food. Tables crowded up hard to get around in the dining area. Not impressed at all, too many other nice places in Waco to eat!

Went here after a basketball and everything looked good. I had a burger and the onion rings and my hubs had the chicken fried steak. Burger was good, onion rings were great! Hubs didn't think the CFS was as good as his mama makes (haha!) but he is pretty picky. Cold beer and lots of TVs to watch. We really... More

Very good southern comfort food; we took our guests from Iowa there for dinner and they loved it. Not fancy, a relaxed/fun atmosphere and a great wait staff. The bacon wrapped chicken jalapeno poppers appetizers were a big hit; fried catfish was also very good.

Hometown feel with really good food. Walk in in your jeans or shorts and feel at home. Although they are know for their "BIG O" beer the menu offers something good for everyone. I personally love the club sandwich, BLT, cheesburger, onion rings, pulled pork sandwich, crispy chicken salad, crazy wings, crazy wing salad, catfish, fried shrimp, pork chop, rib... More

On the road driving and wanted a nice home cooked meal, a local told us about George's. Went in and had a meal. Walked out with a big smile and full belly. Food was awesome. Whole family was happy. It was like we had just had dinner at nana's house. Loved the chicken fried chicken

When the locals say this place is hard to beat, we had to give it a try on a recent trip to Waco. We were there for lunch on a Saturday, game day at Baylor basketball. We arrived shortly after 1 pm, and the line was out the door. However, things moved quickly and we were seated in about 15... More
