This place was packed on a Thursday night. After we got our food we knew why. All 4 of us were happy with our meals. My grilled shrimp was done just right. The grilled veggies were very good also. DH's combo plate with grilled red fish, shrimp & chicken tenders were all cooked perfectly. I would recommend George's if your... More

A Waco tradition, known for super-cold beer in a frosted glass (The Big-O) and reasonably good food in a diner/sports bar setting. I'd recommend the newer Hewitt location, although it's not right on 35 (but nothing's far in Waco!!!). The hot wings are a big favorite of my teenaged kids, as is the chicken-fried steak. I really like all their... More

We chose to eat at George's to celebrate a birthday. We arrived at 5 and had a fairly large party (7 and a high chair). It took about 10 minutes to be seated which was pretty good since they were a little busy. Unfortunately we were seated next to a wall and were super cramped. There were no options to... More

My daughter and I stopped here for lunch after a road trip from San Antonio to Dallas. The food was awesome, the atmosphere was fun, and the service team was excellent. Food was amazing too!

I can't review the food as we left shortly after being seated. Just a bit loud, drunk and smokey for a family dinner. Harmless enough and appropriate for a sports outing. The food looked like great bar fare.
