It is a great place to go and watch a game especially the Falcons. I had a bbq bacon burger. It was cooked perfectly and was very tasty. French fries were hot. Great place!!!

Was able to reunite with some great friends! George's: I always come for your lamb burgers. And I won't lie we had to leave the Vortex and come to you because they took their Turkey Burger off the menu. Courtney we appreciate your jovial attitude and review of weekend College Football stats. #RollTide

OK, OK.... Yes, it has wood walls, is sort of set up galley style, but man oh man do they have great veggie burgers and the hummus is to die for! If I lived in the Virginia Highlands this would be my home away from home. Even my teenage kids love this place. Have been to several times and will... More

Great place to sit on the patio, have a good burger and a beer. No, it's not a gourmet burger.. but they do have tater tots (a friend calls them God's favorite) We go regularly. Super local hangout.

Basically, this is a neighborhood bar with wooden walls and ceilings. Their main menu item is hamburgers and they are reasonable, but not really memorable. The salmon salad had an ample portion of fresh salmon, but the salad greens weren't cold (in fact, they were room temperature). Service was good, but I doubt I will go back. It just wasn't... More

If you're simply looking for a good meal out and cozy Cheers-like environment, that generally has space for you, go to George's. We always call it the "go-to" for when we strike out on other options. George's is solid food for the price, great spot to take kids (they have a side room where they usually put families away from... More

We took two nieces and one of their husbands here for a lunch on a Saturday. Parking was mildly challenging, but that is more due to the Va-Hi area than to George's. There is a pay lot just down the street beyond the woodworking place, or you could probably park further away in the neighborhoods. Our first choice was whether... More

Great service and fair prices. Skip the fads and go with "est 1961" for the best bite. Simple menu and easy on the wallet. George's!

I had never been there before so I was pleasantly surprised. I ordered a burger and fries. The burger was a 1/4 pound and it was good! It had bacon, cheddar cheese and BBQ sauce. The service was excellent. The waiter came back to my table numerous times to check on me.

I had the bacon cheese and it was very good. My wife got the blackened Maui sandwich and she really enjoyed it as well. A cool little place and it is quite reasonable on price.
