No frills, but excellent burgers. If you are looking for a step above fast food and you want a tasty burger without all the chemicals, go to George's.

My family has been eating at George 's for 20+ years. It has been, and still is, the best place for casual burgers and fries in Walnut Creek. The burgers are always cooked to order, as ordered; if you ask for it medium rare, you...More
