    George’s has one of the most talked about burgers in the area, with its perfect mix of gourmet ground and backyard char.  Grab one of these, sit on the patio and watch the people walk by. Read more

    Chicken sandwich used to be great, now it is just OK. Stick with the burgers.

    My favorite is the Mexican burger with a black bean patty! Second is the chili! Yums! Been going here for 7 years and two kids later. Hole in the wall gem of the Highlands!

    Every time I eat a Burger from George's I wonder why "Yeah, Burger" even exists.

    Unpretentious since 1961. Hand-pressed, fresh (not frozen) patties, grilled to order. Historic, from Hamilton Jordan to Justin Timberlake. Untrendy. Love it!

    Good burgers, and even better people watching if you sit outside.

    This should be the Corner Bistro of Atlanta. Good burger, decent music and good, cheap beers. Kid friendly. Good for sports watching.

    As George's granddaughter & food consumer for 20 yrs, I can testify to how tasty the menu is - no bias opinions attached. Not only the burgers, but also the chicken fingers & mozz stix = yummy. (: GO!

    George's burgers are a staple of Va-Hi. Their no-frills vibe is welcomed in the era of boutique burgers. There's a reason they've been around since 1961! Sit on the patio, order a brew & people watch. Read more

    Best burger in Atlanta -- get it just the way it comes. This ain't one of those new fancy assed burger joints. Dive bar. Cold beer. Great burgers. Perfect!

    Jalapeno Dijon burger was fantastic. I recommend upgrading to onion rings for the extra $.75
