Bar atmosphere with big screens! Friendly crowd , large menu, and good reasonable priced food. Loved the bar-b-que pulled pork sandwich!

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.

A friend told us to stop here and eat while in Waco. So we stopped and had lunch and was very good food and fast service. Very busy.

This place is awesome for meeting friends for drinks. They have the best beer and awesome mixed drinks as well as a fun atmosphere in the deck area, the restaurant side however isn't great. If you're wanting dinner from George's I highly recommend traveling a few miles to the Hewitt, TX location. Much more seating, better service, and better food... More

I was in town for a football Saturday but had no tickets, so I needed a place to sit and watch the Baylor game on television while chowing down. My friend recommended George's, and I'm really glad he did. The place had a neat atmosphere, and the burger was great! I'd definitely recommend it to others.

George's came highly recommended to us while we were visiting Waco. The reviews were also pretty good so we were excited about going. Once there, we were seated fairly quick and the server was nice enough. It appears to be a locally owned diner. Food was ok, not awesome though. Don't think it would be enough to recommend to friends.

Unexpected surprise for the location. They offer huge, very good margaritas and tap beer in large glasses. Large restaurant so no waiting time. Varied menu with plentiful sides to choose from. American food like chicken fried steak, other food like chicken Parmesan. Servings were large and our waitperson was very helpful with suggestions. We went on Friday evening, December 23rd... More

There was a variety of menu items. The lunch prices were very reasonable. There were 9 of us and our bill was under $100. This place is great for large parties too.

Had dinner after a long trip- hit the spot! Rolls were hot and fresh..... had the fried chicken steak- only thing that I can dink them on is the green beans (too crunchy- seemed undercooked). Can definitely recommend!
