We got the last table for a Tuesday lunch, and soon the line was well out the door showing how popular this place is with the locals. The food was inexpensive, tasty, and generous. Service was a little slow, but not surprising with the crowd that was there. (It appeared that some folks were pre-ordering before they even got a... More

A plus rating for some authentic Mexican or American food. People always smiling. Service is fast and snappy.

Friendly, accommodating, quality-minded-I cannot say enough about this restaurant. Delicious breakfast cooked exactly to order (someone CAN make over medium eggs) and super coffee! It's definitely on our "stop again" list. We'll time our trips to eat here as often as possible, and I wish I could rate it higher.

when we went it was crowded Probably because it was July 5th everybody else was traveling home. The food was so good. And the service was great even with as crowded as it was. Will be back again for sure.

Had a great choice for breakfast & lunch. Lunch was served as early as 10 am! 👍🏼 We have burgers, patty melt, steak & eggs & the green chile cheese burger which was amazing. Glad to see a local dive serve such great classic food.

We were very pleased with our visit to George's. We stopped by for lunch after a long day at the Great Sand Dunes. We were tired from our long walks. When you get there, they treat you like family. We enjoyed our stay. The food was wonderful and we intend on returning as much as possible

Stopped in around 8:15 for breakfast and we were greeted by the super friendly cashier. We were seated right away and by 8:45 the place was packed. Portions were good, service was fast. Seemed like lots of locals but it was perfect for travelers.

Another reviewer mentioned how small the restaurant is. I noticed that, but the bigger thing that I noticed was how clean and well maintained it is. Fresh paint. clean ceiling vents. Many times these things go unattended, and many would not notice them. I do. The kitchen area (that was visible) was also very clean. A guarantee of good food?... More

This place is very busy. It was packed when we stopped on our way to Manitou Springs but a table opened up quickly. Service was good but maybe a little slow, not unexpected due to how busy it was. My husband said his burger was good. My Reuben sandwich was great! The bread was toasted and not greasy like Reubens... More
