George's is one of those vanishing diner-style restaurants that serves all-day breakfasts, as well as a wide range of other lunch & dinner dishes. I've only eaten there for breakfast so I cannot comment on the lunch & dinner dishes.
As to the breakfast menu,...it offers a wide range of egg & griddle options, which are competently prepared. However, I cannot get past the fact that the coffee is also a throwback -- a weak "Columbian" blend rather than a more robust brew. And, George's does not have any option of instead ordering an expresso-based coffee. Sorry, but I want a good cup of Joe to accompany my breakfast. Bad coffee just renders the entire breakfast a disappointment.
Also, I am fairly certain that the syrup served with pancakes, etc is not authentic maple syrup. I'd probably be far more enthusiastic if -- for an "upcharge" -- Georges offered customers the option of ordering a latte (or other expresso-based coffee) and real maple syrup.
Service is prompt and friendly. For those who don't care about my quibbles, they will probably like George's just fine.More
So, you are visiting friends or relatives in Oak Park, IL and you stayed overnight on Saturday. Everyone gets up and you decide to go out for breakfast. George's is the place to go. Great breakfast for a reasonable price. Every thing on the menu...is great. You cannot go wrong, There is also a huge variety of items to choose. Be prepared to wait because it is really busy on Sunday morning. There is the before church crowd, the after church crowd, the late breakfast crowd, etc. You get the idea. Enjoy your meal!!!More
Prompt and friendly service, extensive menu, wonderful food. Our server told us everything on the menu was available all the time. My wife and her mom had the Greek spinach pie with beef and barley and cream of chicken soup respectively. I had the French...dip. Excellent!More
Great breakfast spot. Huge selections of breakfast items. Samuel Omelet was terrific. Avocado, cheddar, sausage and tomato. Big omelet. Options for hash browns or fresh fruit. My son had the french toast with whipping cream. Very good also. Great coffee. Service is friendly and good....Park on the street, so bring change to feed the meter. $.25 for 15 minutes.More
Always busy at mealtimes but worth the wait. Tiny parking lot off alley behind the restaurant and limited street parking with meters, so bring change. A favorite of families with children with good food, plenty of options for kids and reasonable prices.
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...a discerning college kid.
Ambience: Multi gen, multi ethnic. Best of oak park. Everyone will feel at home here.
Approx $10 each and leftover boxesMore
