Fullerton: George’s Hamburgers

While having dinner with my BFF, her husband asked me: “Have you ever been to George’s?”. Where? I asked. It’s off Commonwealth and Euclid, across from the U-Haul place.

I’ve driven by this place dozens of times, and never gave it much thought. So I yelped it, and saw that this place was known for their Breakfast Burritos. Geez, the yelp reviews were full of photos of those burritos, with salsa and ranch dressing.

So I coaxed Stephen into going on a Saturday around 11:30 am. The place was packed, but I was able to score a parking space right under the George’s sign. We walked in, and the place is tiny, with maybe 10 tables to the left, and 6 to the right. I walked up to what I think is the order counter, and a nice guy greets me. I tell him its my first time and he suggested a ham breakfast burrito. I asked how about the bacon, and he said why not add both? It’s only $1 more. Sure, why not!?

I saw how big they were, and how yelpers said they couldn’t finish one, so Stephen and I shared one, and ordered 2 sodas. Total came to just over $10.  He asked if it was for here or to go, and I said “for here if we could find a seat”. Miracles happened… a table just freed up, literally next to the cashier. Was this a sign or what?!

I was so happy we split it, too. The burrito was heavy, and full of ham, potatoes, and eggs. I had a little less than 1/2 a burrito, and I was full all day.

I want to give it 5 stars, but for now its a solid 4… I was darn lucky to get a parking spot and a table. I can only imagine how packed this place can get, and wished they have more places to sit. Oh well, not their fault. I will come back to try their burgers.. they look great!

Cash only!
