“Great food!”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

George's is a Waco favorite & should not be missed. Great American food, including wonderful breakfasts & dinners. This is not healthy or fat-free eating. It's old-fashioned, momma's southern cooking. It is a favorite of George W. Bush (no relation) & other famous folk, whose photos are hanging on the restaurant walls. Don't miss this place!

“Lives up to the hype!”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

Have heard about George's for years. Glad work finally brought me to Waco. George's did not disappoint! Food was great, service was awesome, and prices were right!

Chicken Fried Steak is not to be missed! Couldn't believe how thick the steak was and I would easily put theirs on the list of Best CFS in Texas!

Just one tip...if you hate the smell of smoke, ask to be put at a table away from the smoking room/bar section. Our table was close to the smoking section and every time the door opened, we got a whiff of that horrible smell non-smokers try to avoid.

“Great!”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

This is a great place to eat if you are in Waco. It is iconic in the town. The chicken fried steak is what they are known for, and it is delicious.

“It is what it is supposed to be, everytime.”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Wide variety of homestyle and bar food. None of it is world class, but all of it is good food at a reasonable price. Ive been there dozens of times, and never had bad service or a bad meal.
