Our family of 4 dined here with friends while in Nanaimo. Our friends frequent George's fairly often and I had seen the restaurant featured on Food Network Canada's "You Gotta Eat Here."
Between the 4 of us we tried: the pulled pork sandwich, the smoked chicken sandwich, the beef brisket sandwich and the combo plate. For sides we had the beans, secret slaw, fries and cornbread. Everything was really, really tasty - some of the best pulled pork/brisket we've ever had! As far as the sides, the fries were fresh and nicely cooked; the slaw is a vinaigrette rather than mayo base, which we enjoyed; the beans were more like chili than baked beans, but tasty. The only odd thing was the cornbread... it was very dense and served cold. Okay, but I've had better - next time I'd pass on the cornbread and try something else. For dessert we shared a Nanaimo bar with bacon - so good! We will definitely head back to George's next time we're in Nanaimo!
