“Best burgers in BC!”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

The pic above is NOT of George's, which is actually just a take-out window! You order and THEN they make your food while you wait, and it's not a long wait. Very efficient service and absolutely amazing burgers! (Try the combo) We love this little place for take out meals :)

“Great”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

A burger with taste. A tradition that never gets old. Grilled bun, fried onions processed cheese. and flavour like Gramma used to make. Good fries. The service is like the soup Nazi's from Sienfields sitcom but you can overlook that because of the flavour.

“Not a picture of George's”
Reviewed 17 December 2012

George's "joint" is a little hole in the wall next to a pizza place. NOT the place pictured!

I have to have a minimum of 100 characters so here goes - if you don't mind standing outside on the sidewalk for the best burger in Courtenay, that's all the atmosphere you'll experience @ George's.

“Georges ... experienced now by four generations in our family”
Reviewed 9 December 2012

It's not a secret to home-town Comox Valley folks but perhaps is to those passing through town. If you're looking for simplicity and perfection at it's best when it comes to burgers, look no further than his little take-away joint. As a child, it was always such a treat to charge over to Georges while the folks were busy with baseball/soccer at Lewis Park. 35+ years and my order is still the same as it was then ... Cheeseburger, fries and a root bear milkshake. Instead of George at the grill, his sons are there and they know the family secret to burger perfection. Don't be alarmed if nothing is written down, their memory is uncanny. Once your order is up, you then pay. My parents introduced my siblings and I to Georges who have in-turn introduced our children to Georges and we're now onto our children's' children.
