Just had lunch at George's. I challenge anyone to find a better restaurant with better prices, a larger menu, and more satisfied customers. If you are looking for decor, don't go there. If you just want a satisfying meal, this is your place. I ordered the lunch special grilled chicken tenders with onions and peppers, green beans, and the vegetable... More

I like hole-in-the-wall joints, so run down diner furniture didn't turn me off. It's somewhat of an asset sometimes. The O rings are great, especially with the house dressing, which seems to be a mixture of thousand island & french. The burgers were tasty, even though the patties may or may not have been pre-packaged, & frozen. They were a... More

This place was on our list to try on our visit to Waco, primarily because of the favorable ratings we found on here. All the five star ratings are correct. The chairs are uncomfortable, the decor is rustic to phrase it kindly, and it is a tad crowded. However, with those negatives dismissed as being trivial, the things that matter... More

Home of the original Big O, this place has great environment, great food, cold beer, and friendly service. I've visited since I was a student at Baylor in the early 90's and drop by every time I visit Waco.

Great food - good prices - if you like home cooked Texas food - head to George's. The sides are great and lots of food!

Drinks are fab. Had a burger. Daughter had shrimp which she didn't share. Wife had chicken fried steak. It was huge. Took half of it back to our room. The place was packed but we still got great service. Both of our Big O drinks were awesome. We will be going back. I know why the student's eat there. Great... More

After getting lost trying to find our motel (that was not included in the GPS database), we stmpbled across George's and were glad we did,. It's an establishment clearly very popular with the locals and was busy on a Monday night but we were seated quickly. George's is an eating experience rarely if ever seen in Australia; we were impressed... More
