You don't want to miss George's - By that I mean, you should eat here but also, you have to be on the lookout for it as its location is easy to miss. This small restaurant is in an somewhat unattractive and teensy strip mall on one of Sioux City's busier streets. With any luck, you should be able to... More

I've tried all 3 hot dog restaurants in Sioux City and this is the best tasting by far. Milwaukee doesn't come close.

Homemade potato salad and baclava. Delicious! Local owned business, friendly staff, free off street parking.

Sioux City is lucky to have three different coney dog options. The first two started in 1918 while George's came to be around mid 1970's. George Demetroulis and his wife Mary have been running this place forever. You will see George behind the counter when you walk in the store. If you stay long enough, you will see plenty of... More

Located in an old strip mall is usually where a good meal can be found, and this was true of George's. Considering there are NO Coney Island hot dogs in Greece, this place does a decent job of making them! George had been doing this for many years and has the chili and the "tube steaks" down pat. We like... More

Before you can even speak of the food, you just can't beat the greeting you get when you walk in the door. It's like coming home. I absolutely love these hotdogs. I like to bring in new customers and they always want to come back. Everything is homemade. It reminds me of the good old days with a few pics... More

Typical hotdog joint. It's cozy and inviting without being retro - disgusting. The menu is, well, hotdogs: plain, double, coney, Chicago - style, chili, you get the picture. The right choice if you're craving quick comfort food.

Small and low key. The hotdogs had a very good taste to them. And the chili was really good. The owner was the only one working and did a great job.

The sign outside says George's #1 but I don't know if there's a #2. My wife went here for years before she left Sioux City and it has become a regular stop when we visit her family. George, the owner with his wife, make their own hot dogs and his wife, Mary, makes the chili sauce. Open for 40 years,... More
