This is without doubt the best bar on Waco. It has a great atmosphere with a wide variety of friendly patrons. The staff are the best I have had the pleasure of being served by. They are very efficient and friendly. If you go to Waco you MUST go to George's

George's catered our family reunion this weekend. Not only were they prompt, the meal was hot, abundant and delicious. We were extremely pleased. They also get an A+ for friendliness and courteous service.

I was told it would be a 10 minute wait...turned into a 25 minute wait. 4 tables left while we waited two sets of names were crossed off the list that came in after us....they were seated. WILL not go back to this location. If you own this establishment and see this review.....your staff is inadequate. Visited 4/25/15 of you... More

I Recently went with friends to George's and was vey impressed. Their food is better than most places, prices are very reasonable and they have just about anything one could desire to eat. They are very busy but manage to keep things moving along with out long waits.

We sat in open air bar area and loved it. Not sure I would have enjoyed eating inside since the tables are WAY to close for my liking...and the center bar section allow smoking and I didn't care for that but the open bar area.....while allowing smoking,, you'd never know it as you won't smell it unless you sit at...

We went to George's based on a recommendation from someone that lives in Waco. I was not expecting much. When we arrived, we noticed the place was busy and the atmosphere was fun. Jordan was our server and she was very friendly and helpful. We had a big crowd and she was on top of it. I tried the famous... More

Parking can be a bear and you may have to wait for a table....but it is so worth it. the onion rings alone are dripping with swesomeness. There is not a bad thing on the menu.
