Being a local I had to come on here and review after seeing what some of the other reviews were. Eve n though this is a beer sight, I try not to limit the Places section to beer only. If you like Bud Light (which I do) and want it in a Big O at 32.1 degrees and want to watch a game and yell over everyone to talk to your friend, then this is the place. It really isn't an outsider place. Most of the people there know each other, or you go with a lot of friends. It's not a snooty high class place by any means, but it can be a lot of fun. The bar opens up but still has screens to keep bugs out. So during the summer you get the night time fresh air while you drink and eat. They have some bacon jalapeno chicken that is incredible. Burgers are good, and generally the waitresses are friendly. I've never had a bad time there.

A fun little historic dive bar, but don't expect a wide tap selection. This is the place to go to watch a game and drink 18oz of a draft domestic for cheap. Shiner Bock is the likely the highest quality stuff you'll find and it will come out at 32 degrees. Great for bar food as long as you're not looking to cut calories.

All in all, fun for what it is!

A dive bar that all the Baylor kids and locals seem to love for some reason. I think it has been here since Waco was founded. They have a restaurant section (non smoking) and bar section (smoking). Menu is composed primarily of burgers, wings and various fried things. Lunch specials are about $6.

Taps are limited, the most exotic beers are Shiner and occasionally Zeigenbock. Their big Os are the reason to go, if 18 oz of nearly frozen Coors Light floats your boat.

I've been there twice now, both times at the behest of coworkers. I have no desire to return.

Pat Green wrote a song about Georges, so they've got that going for them.

I went here on a Saturday night when I was in Waco. Considered a Waco landmark and famous for it's country fried steak. Very large place and it was packed when we went. About half of it is a restaurant and the other half is a bar. We ate in the restaurant. I wasn't really impressed with their food. Not great, but everyone I was with seemed to enjoy it. Took a long while to get our food and our waitress certainly wasn't the most efficient I have ever had. We went to the bar area after we finished eating and it was packed. Very difficult to move around. Overall this place is OK. I expected better because of the landmark that it is considered.
