Good food, service, and location. Right near Baylor. Steaks were great and tacos were huge. Good appetizers. Locals love this place.

Wonderful, happy, going getting place. Big frozen mug full of Shiner, great service, crunchy hot onion rings, hot fries and tasty big burgers on the best buns! Fun dinner! Can't wait for next years symposium so we can come back! Thanks!

I like the hamburger and onion rings they are very good. They have nice daily lunch and dinner deals. This is a very popular local place so they are always busy.

Loved going to George's. Saw lots of Baylor students and parents since it was the start of fall semester. Food was great. Loved the Bear Bite appetizers and giant margaritas. Definitely try it for casual fun.

All knowing for their "Big O's", George's fits the bill for families, lunch, and happy hour! With a variety of menu items, specials are offered daily.

I enjoyed the environment. It was a HOT day and I wanted a margharita and some sliders. The margharita "hit the spot" on a hot Texas... More
