A great experience overall at this friendly, family run restaurant that's been around for 50 years. We were served by George himself, who prepared an awesome meal for 3 of us adults, and we all ordered different things. The Spanikopita was very flavourful - same with the huge fresh Greek salad, and that was just to start - we ordered... More

If you hungry for a large lunch this is a good choice. An old fashion restaurant complete with pictures of Greek food and the Greek flag. Many dishes come with a large Greek salad fully of feta cheese. When the owner retires a Starbucks will move in, the end of an era.

I lived on Longbranch Ave. in the 70's and visited this diner weekly. At that time it was owned by the present owners parents, George and Tina. They were more than just a good place to get your burger and fries, or breakfast or dinner, They always made you feel welcome and had time to talk. I could not imagine... More

Definitely a known local joint. The place itself is small, a few tables. It is family owned, and usually always a women and... More

I have a personal slant on this restaurant because my mother lives in the neighbourhood and has been going to George's a couple of times a week, if not daily, for the past 20 years. So of course every time I'm in Toronto I go to George's with her at least once. She has come to know the family proprietors,... More
