During our stay in Waco we asked the hotel staff for a good place to eat Chicken Fried Steak and George's was recommended. I agree it really is delicious but be warned that a 'full-order' means two pieces of meat!

The food and service are good. The atmosphere is old. I was there at 11:30 and it was almost full. We sat in the bar area that was full of Baylor students. If I ever go back I will be seated on the deck

George's food and cold beer does not disappoint. The crazy wings and a Big O are all you need to be satisfied. The atmosphere and music make you want to come back for more. The place is always packed, so get there early.

This is a very casual restaurant with typical Texas fare. Everything was good but not great. The chicken fried steak was very big but had a lot of coating and little steak. The half order seem to be enough for most. My liver and onions was over cooked and seemed like it had been cooked earlier and warmed up. The... More

Drove up to the restaurant and saw a building that looked like it was added onto several times with an outdoor patio. Nothing fancy here. This ended up being a great find recommended by a local. The staff and service was good and the food was very good. The boneless wings came with enough for two too eat and our... More
