Every time I’m in St. George, I spend at least half a day hiking around Snow Canyon or Red Cliffs, and by the time I get back, I am hungry and almost always craving a big, juicy hamburger and some fries. But with a city full of chain restaurants, it might seem like the only choices are In & Out or Smashburger (both good choices, I might add, but I can get those anywhere), which is why George’s is a welcome sight when driving down the Boulevard.
George’s is basically your classic American dining experience where you can get anything from a burger to fried chicken to baby back ribs and everything looks delectable. The interior is homey and decorated with old fashioned prints and wood details, and the servers and attentive and happy to give recommendations on their favorites. They claim to have the best burger in town, and with it being my usual order, I can’t disagree. I pile mine high with swiss cheese and grilled onions, and you can depend on the chefs to cook the meat the way you want it – if you say medium, it will be medium.
My husband is a cheese steak fanatic and he loves the one at George’s, ordering it almost every time we go. The “Dixie” cheese steak sandwich is loaded with melty pepper jack cheese, tender tri-tip, and yummy chipotle mayo. He inhales it alongside the crispy fries that he likes to dip in their buttermilk ranch.
My absolute favorite thing at George’s, though, is their mac & cheese. The inside is creamy and rich and it’s topped with just the right amount of melted cheese to get that perfect texture that I’m always looking for in this dish. It’s hard to still be hungry enough to eat it after a huge burger and fries, but it’s definitely worth saving room for.
So, next time you’re in southern Utah and hankering for a filling American meal, head to George’s instead of your usual go-to burger joint. You’ll definitely be glad you did!
