I have always enjoyed eating at George's Restaurant. The food is always good and plentiful. If you like good greasy hamburgers and French fries, George's is the place. Also, if you like chicken fried steak, George's is good. However, they do tend to smother the chicken fried steak with white gravy. Ask for the gravy on the side. If you... More

I had the Philly Cheesesteak and it was fabulous! The onion rings are bad either! My friend enjoyed the monster Cobb salad and was impressed!

A very busy place, the Hewitt location has good service and tasty food. Love the lunch specials when I meet friends there. Great American food, hard to choose a favorite.

What's there to say about George's that hasn't already been said? This is a frequent hangout of Baylor bears, Waco natives, traveling Texans and songwriters alike. Situated right off of i35, George's is located about halfway between Austin and Dallas in the beloved central Texas city David Koresh called home. George's has great bar food and beer served in a...

My husband and I were thinking of places not to far from home because we do not have a lot of money to spend for our One Year Anniversary. We called our friends in Waco and said we are coming to town. Can you recommend a eatery in Waco for lunch? George's is the place you want to go. We... More

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
