“Great inexpensive meal”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

It is a little difficult to navigate to off the highway, and then find a parking spot, but we'll worth it. As a hint - their catering office is across the street and you can park there as an overflow area.

Separate smoking and non-smoking rooms keep everyone happy. It is everything you anticipate - plenty of burgers and fried food items. All fresh and tasty. We had CFS, 'Cry-baby' burger (jalapeños and jalapeño bun) both with onion rings which were fantastic.

Energetic dining area, a few TVs with sports, and plenty of water staff to keep drinks filled. Overall a great stop on the way Dallas to Austin. So much better than the chain restaurants.

“Good fun and good food for a great price”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

We are lunch at George's last week. It has a really fun college town feel to it. Great food at a good price and a little something for everyone.

“Good home cooking and a bar.”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

This is one of the most popular restaurants in Waco. It's a local place with plain old simple food. Nothing trendy or overpriced because of the chef. The daily specials add value, but I'll eat there every time I am in town. I couldn't recommend it more highly, if you're looking for Mom's cooking. A bit crowded at dinner time, so get there early!

“Never Disappoints!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

I have been coming here since i was in college at Baylor 20 years ago. The food is always great and there isnt a colder Big O beer in Texas! Bring lots of people each year that have never been and they all love it. Keep up the good work!

“Great CFS”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

Had the full order CFS. Way too much for one human but was fork tender. Broad choices on menu means something for everyone. Very casual with plenty of tv's for watching sports. Legendary Waco spot.
