George's isn't fancy - that's not the point. You don't come here for a romantic, candlelight dinner. George's can be loud, serves decent (if some what "unhealthy") food with an interesting Tex-Mex twist and is a place where couples, friends and families will feel at home. The menu is huge and just deciding on what to eat can be a... More

This is a Waco institution for a reason, food and staff are great. Be sure to get the jalapeno cheese bun on burgers if it doesn't already come with it. You have to ask at most of the places that serve these special buns. They come from a bakery in Houston and are soooo good.

While in Waco you should try Georges. It has good food for reasonable prices and is a good change from the Cracker Barrel. Highly recommended..

We will be back. Good food. Great waiter. Noontime was busy but service was prompt. I think there is more than one George's in Waco with this one near Baylor.

This is undoubtedly the best bar in Waco. There is a very good atmosphere with a varied clientele. The food is excellent, and the servers are extremely good. If you go to Waco, you've got to visit Georges.

Friday night at 6 pm this place is packed!! I was in town on business so I opted to sit in the bar area as opposed to a 15 minute wait. The service was fast and friendly. I had the full order of Chicken Fried Steak....WARNING: Be VERY hungry to order this or prepared to take a to go box... More

We went there based on a recommendation. I ordered a club sandwich. It will go on record as the worst sandwich I have ever had served to me at any place where I paid for food. I saw a lot of happy people there so I am pretty certain that something must be good (perhaps the ice cold mugs of... More

The restaurant was very crowded but they got us in and out quickly. We split nachoes and chicken fried steak. They were good. Service was great. Customers were very friendly.
