Without question, when it comes to authentic, old-school original Drive-Ins, George's place is it. In business since 1952, they have well over half a century of doing it right. When you arrive, you'll fall in love with the vintage atmosphere that has survived all of these decades. It's places like this that are losing ground to the bigger brands, so it's a rare and incredible gem to have around to this day. As from the first days, they continue to use fresh ingredients, an assortment of unique spices and flavors to give you the best taste and flavors around. Of course, famous for this chili, they also serve old-school Coneys loaded with the original chili topping, Burgers, Homemade Fries and Onions Rings, delicious Milkshakes and more. We also recommend the Cheese Sticks, Sandwiches and Tenderloin options. Listen, if you're ever passing through this part of the country, you can't miss having a meal here - trust us!
