For whatever reason(s) George has closed his doors for good. George and his restaurant will be sorely missed by those who appreciate good western food. I wish him well in his future endeavors and hope they might include his opening another Guilin restaurant.

George the owner has done an excellent job of teaching his cooks to prepare Mexican food. It tastes just like the real thing. Most of his staff don't speak english but are really good and helpfull. His menus are in english so you just point to the food you want and all is good. Prices are very reasonable and you... More

We've been traveling around amazing China for 5 months and really wanted American food. So happy the first time here at the restaurant that we came back. Owner is nice and chatty. Young lady who is the server is GREAT and very on the ball. We had pizza, burgers, sandwiches, and onion rings. All very American. So happy.

This is one of my favorites; been going here every time I am in Guilin. Great fish and chips, burgers, steaks and pizza. They moved into a new and larger location. The owner is a chef from Los Vagas USA. Prices range from 25 to 98 RMB.

Some of the food was disappointing. We ordered cheese fingers which had been fried in in very dirty oil and weren't tasty at all. The grilled chicken breast was OK but all in all it was a pricey for Guilin standards.Unfortunately , the service was really bad. I had to repeat my order twice and even then, it came late... More

As a teacher living in Guilin, American Grill is our go-to restaurant when we're missing home. It's still China, but it's as close to home as we have found in Guilin. Try the Philly Cheese Steak, Bacon Cheeseburger, or Quesadillas. The Greek-American owner, George, is friendly and accommodates any special requests you may have -- he also throws together something... More

I've been going to Guilin every two years since 2003 and I have had a difficult time with eating the local fare every day. I usually lose weight during a 30 day visit but in November 2013 that changed when I found George's restaurant. I've had hamburgers, tuna salad, Philly cheese steak, onion rings, fries, steak and even turkey and... More

As I live in Guilin I have been a frequent visitor to this restaurant. I have seen it grow from a small establishment to what it has become today. The food is amazing. Prior to the restaurant offering Mexican dishes, I usually stuck to the burgers. Now the menu has grown tremendously. The Mexican nachos and Mexican burritos are phenomenal.... More

The ambience is cozy. Design is sailor-ish which tells you that the owner may have a connection with the sea, a navy officer perhaps. Waitresses can speak English and they never lose their smiles. I ordered a plate of pasta and chicken. The spaghetti was perfect and chicken was tender and succulent. I was with my family and they too,... More
