Georges has served the valley for several decades. They provide decent burgers and the like. The really iconic thing is the experience. You call your order in at the window and nothing is written down and you don't even get a nod. several minutes later, your order is there and exactly what you asked for. it's good solid reliable' food...

Simple and easy. Cash only. Milkshakes are yummy. No frills and who need them? You order, you get a good burger or Chinese food and it's yummy. Something has to be right they've been there since 1968!

I love George's. The burgers are awesome. Juicy, soft, greasy and hot off the grill. Everything a burger should be. I don't understand people who come here and complain about the grease. This is a legit burger joint, they are fried in grease, along with the buns and onions. That's what a real burger is. Drippy. If you don't like... More

My boyfriend has eaten here over 10 times in 2 weeks, safe to say it's a hidden gem! P.s. George was in the world record books for never ever forgetting items in an order!

It was not a place I would have gone to except friends told me it was a 'must'. A nothing looking place, no seating. Chinese rice was the best I have ever had, as was the sweet and sour chicken. What a fun experience, grab your bag of food and head across the street to the park and have a... More

This place is awesome. If you're not looking for healthy food... Want a side of sweet and sour park with your burger? Chow mien? This is the place. It's iconic, but it's not for everyone.

My fathers been coming here since he was a young adult and brought me and my sisters here as kids for years when we would pass thru from Campbell River. George's is in the Guinness world record book for remembering the most orders without writing them down, the father George I think still works in the back but his wife... More
