George's King of Falafel
Posted by Mark G on 09/02/2012
It was 3am on a sat morn that I decided to go here only cause it was the only place serving that late. The Food was subpar, the meat was dry and hard. No simple dishes on the menu unless you're just getting a wrap/sandwich, you're forced to buy a platter with all the extra stuff that tastes just as poor. I drove away thinking what did i just eat .... I would give it 0 stars if i could. Don't recommend this place.

Oh man this place is the Lebanese version of a "hole-in-the-wall" (albeit surrounded by million dollar town homes) and it is so worth finding when your walking around Georgetown. The Falfel is good, in fact very good, but the Shawarma is what will stay in your memory for a long time. If I were a real estate agent in that part of town I would insist that all my clients stop at George's to eat. The sale would complete before the end of the first Shawarma. Not sure what shawarma is? Think Gyro, only with Tahina sauce instead of Tzatzki sauce, and are usually chicken or beef. You have to try them once. And the kibbeh (kind of like a middle eastern hamburger) is best eaten warm with some bread and yogurt. George and his family are incredibly gracious folks and the place is kid friendly. Once you try this place you will go back.

George's is fantastic - the cheesesteaks are like no other cheesesteaks i've ever had - a combination of american and middle eastern that ends up tasting great. But, my favorite thing there isn't even on the menu. Ask for a Chicken Shawarma and they'll make it for you, even though the Shawarma on the menu is only beef. The Chicken Shawarma is amazing - it's the closest i've had to real Middle Eastern Chicken Shawarma in the United States. Give it a try!
