There's a combo for whatever you were wanting for breakfast. Generous portions are served promptly by a friendly, well-organized staff. Our group ate there two mornings in a row to enjoy the delicious food and welcoming atmosphere.

I have been here a few times over the past couple of years. If you're looking for a non-chain family run place, this is it.

I love breakfast at George's. Now my out of town family & friends do too. When ever they are in town I don't have to ask where we are going for breakfast! Wait staff are the best!

We've tried all of the breakfast cafes in Oak Park and Georges wins hands down. Pancakes and the skillets are the best.

This great "traditional diner" is operated and managed by father and son Greek restaurateurs. They know what the neighborhood wants and craves for, large portions, wide menu selection, friendly staff and above all clean, delicious and decent priced. The place is always packed for breakfast and lunch. brunches are great too. Warm, family diner.
