The menu is HUGE but not all are tops. Friendly, efficient service. Generous portions. All egg choices and pancakes and waffles are great (but fake maple tasting syrup). Venture out into Mexican or Greek items and you will probably be disappointed. That veggie burger delighted...More

George's reputation proceeds itself. The freindly, quick service and substantial selection of breakfast foods is worth the trip. Parking is a little challenging, but thery are just south of the greenline and in walking distances for Oak Parkers. Whatever you like, they can cook.

Wonderful breakfast or lunch options in this classic family restaurant! I was able to order a delicious gluten free meal and my friend loved her soup and sandwich.
