Well in Louisiana we had to try Po Boys, red beans and rice, and gumbo. The food did not disappoint. The server was friendly and very helpful. Orders were placed at the bar can you pick up when ready. Yeah I miss fear was quite rustic.

Pulled up George's on Trip Advisor yesterday. Easy decision to try based on reviews, thanks to those reviews and my groups experience yesterday afternoon, George's will now be on my "Food Schedule" when I'm in town. Everything is made from scratch and it makes a difference. So me, my son, and two buddies had the following: Oysters Acadian (only offered... More

Went for a college tour of LSU, knew George's from 20 years ago, met a person from the tour who commented "You picked a good college to visit, but the best place to eat!" Classic Dive, unparalleled choices of great local fried seafood, burgers and po' boys. I don't remember all the other places around 20 years ago, but they... More

We have been to George's several times and the food is consistently great. The bar staff is courteous and professional. The atmosphere is comfortable and you can totally be yourself at George's. The location is also convenient to LSU and all of the business district from downtown or Corp Center. Thanks George's for a good time!

It is fried oysters on top of rice with a little roux in the bottom that is fantastic. The menu is on the chalk board. You... More

I did not choose this place, nor would I have eaten there if I was by myself. There is tons of dust and dirt hanging from the ceiling with a fan blowing right above several tables. Aside from that you have to order food at the bar, which is fine but instead of having you pay when you order you... More

I work in Baton Rouge and live in Slidell, so one of my co-workers suggested we go to lunch at this restaurant and oh boy was that the best decision. I went to lunch with a few co-workers and it was FABULOUS !! I had the "Pot Roast" Poyboy with French Fries and the sandwich was bigger than the plate... More

It had been several years since I had eaten at George's. Recently I was in BR and looking for lunch. I happened to drive by Georges's. The Reuben was excellent as were the sweet potato fries. My wife had the NOLA po boy and the special NOLA fries. The fries were covered in cheese and the roast beef and gravy... More

Is where I stuffed my face. I think that's a Red Hot Chili Peppers lyric. Either way you can't choose anything bad on this extensive menu. I go with the Po' Boys, because this is Cajun country and they're done exquisitely. Legendary amongst locals and college kids for ages.
