George's is very good albeit usually crowded with tables very close together. It is one of more established non-chain restaurants around Baylor. The portions are large and the food is good. Our service was exceptional. If you are through Waco, it's worth the stop. Easy access from Interstate 35.

We were told about George's before going to Waco and once we got down there. Really was expecting great food, but it was just good. There is nothing wrong with good food but it was not great. I will say service was really good. Wife had chicken fried steak, I had all you can eat catfish. It was good. Again... More

The owner of the restaurant was such a great host! We thoroughly enjoyed our meals. This s a little restaurant that has grown into big business but still makes you feel like you are their favorite customer. Don't miss the chicken wrapped in bacon appetizer. INCREDIBLE!!!

The outside will fool you! Plain front hides the fact that they Have amazing food with a great menu! Service was fast, friendly and the food is some of the best I have eaten! I had grilled wings with lemon/pepper sauce......done perfectly on the outside and moist and tender on the inside! A wonderful place to try in WACO!

This place is hopping busy. Loads of regulars here for Wednesday night half off wings. They have these "crazy wings" chicken, pepper jack, and jalapeño wrapped in bacon then deep fried outstanding. Husband had what he described as the best "chicken fried steak" he has ever had. You won't go wrong here.

One of my favorites. Recommend the chicken fired steaks (small order) or the burgers. This is a must visit place! Definitely a slice of local culture.

Best chicken friend steak and the big O beers are just part of the tradition of George's! Can be too busy around Baylor games but really good chicken fried steaks. That's all we order when we are there.

My husband and I got the special of the night - a half chicken fried steak and sides. It was delicious and so much food! A full steak must be huge. The atmosphere was relaxed and kid friendly.
