Good food

I was supposed to have met a friend here, but he cancelled last minute. Reluctantly, I chose to go on in and eat. Glad I did. I had the Aloha burger, very tasty. Service was pretty good too. Sits right off of I-35, easy off & on.

Had dinner at George's. To begin the staff was amazing. Such friendly young ladies who saw to our every need. The onion ring appetizer was great. Best onion rings ever!!! The home made sauce was good. The chicken fried steak was yummy. We shared one and was plenty for both of us. Fried okra was done right. Yeast rolls really... More

They are always crowded but go on Wednesday night and the crazy wings are half price. (jalapeno peppers stuffed with cheese wrapped in chicken and then in bacon) The taste is so good, add a George's big "O" 20 oz cold beer and life is great.

We go to the Georges at Westrock in Hewitt, Texas and the people and food are great. They have a great variety, reasonable prices and one of the best server's we have ever had. His name is Adam. I would recommend this George's to everyone. Note: The location on 17th & 18th is OK but not like the Hewitt location.

Hadn't been to George's in a few years. But, I always enjoy it. Home of the Big O. Shiner and Margaritas. Nice crazy wings appetizer. It was packed for a Monday night. Burgers, shrimp tacos and grilled shrimp. Everything was good and great atmosphere for a good visit with friends. Always a great stop.

I have been many times and always try to go again when I pass through Waco. They have the best chicken fried steak anywhere--and I have tried many many places. I love their Caesar salad, fries, Mac and cheese, and much more. I always have a hard time deciding in what sides I want because they are all great and... More

My waiter was very friendly and helped me choose my dinner, and it made me happy that i got a good dinner. Beer was just great. Looks like a sports bar with all those 50/60 inch TV's.

An oldie and still a goodie. Sammy has had this place for years and it is still a great place to have a beer. Home of the Big O. Also must get an order of White Wings. Baylor hang out also. I prefer the Big O Deck,but I don't mind noise. They have a quite dining area if noise is... More
