“George's (Cindy's) Diner is the best”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

You couldn't ask more for a neighborhood diner. Cindy is the owner, George, her father, was how the diner got it's name. Cindy is awesome, welcoming, and a great cook. The other folks that cook are also excellent. Never had a bad meal here and have to say have had some of my most fave breakfasts at George's. My faves are the Sandy Stack and the French Toast. Also have good lunch and dinner food. Most days you will find a homemade daily special, like open faced roast beef, spaghetti and meatballs, rubens etc. Bring cash or pay the fee for the atm but don't pass this place up. A bit more money than a larger scale restaurant, for good reason, it's hard to stock a small place and keep the doors open, don't worry, you won't regret the couple extra bucks you spend.

“All expectations aside, it's a great little diner”
Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Pleasantly surprised for Sunday brunch. The appearance wasn't encouraging (hole in the wall sorta place) we thoroughly enjoyed the food. The place has one L shaped counter with about 15 stools around it facing the stove. The whole place was run by Julie, who hand chops all the potatoes and veggies fresh. The service was great. The coffee and decent and the bill was super cheap. For the days I want a quick, tastey, local breakfast I will certainly be back.

“Always been there”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

George's Diner has had a number of names over the last 50 years, but it has been in the same location for as long as I can remember. If you like American Cheese, this is the place to go. They have great waffles, too.
