Now located close to the best Western, it is much bigger with ample seating. Poor Georges offers the best breakfast in Yreka. I recommend bacon (thick cut), with pancake and eggs. You will nor be disappointed

This is our go to restaurant in town. Lots of locals eat here. I love the broaster chicken. My husband gets the sourdough pancakes.

On our way to Central California from Oregon we stopped in Yreka for gas and then looked for a place top eat. We went into one restaurant but it was neither friendly nor very fast. So we decided to leave -something we do reluctantly. We made our way to Poor George's and found the atmosphere much pleasanter. The service was... More

Clean and trying hard to meet people's needs. Out of some dinner items at 4 pm. Mashed potatoes were watery but chopped steak with mushrooms and onions good.

Since we really didn't have any dinner last night, we were getting pretty hungry this morning. In all the times we've been to Yreka, we've never eaten here, though we always threaten to. TOday was finally the day. The food was plentiful, hot, and very good. Wish we had tried this place out long ago.

After a long day of traveling from Washington State, we checked into our hotel and headed out for dinner. It was kind of late and we were very tired but we had heard from someone that Poor George's was a great place to eat. They were so right!! I ordered the crispy chicken salad and my husband ordered fried chicken... More

We just ate here on Friday and on Sunday. Both days the food was good and so was the service. They have a pretty extensive menu which is a plus if you're tired of the typical hamburger when you are on the road. Having said that, I had the bacon peanut butter hamburger. I know, sounds nasty, but it was... More

Worst lack of service I've received in years. Cold awful food that I couldn't eat more then two bites of. After waiting forever I left money on my table and went somewhere else. When the other reviewers on here say don't do it....they are telling u the truth! Dirty floors and tables. Rude staff and gross food.....what else does anyone... More
