The George’s Diner (3536 Hillsborough Rd) parking lot was packed at lunchtime last Friday. With a steady stream of diners & takeout customers, George’s Diner is definitely open for business. The kitchen was serving from eight of the menu’s nine pages (pasta & sautées to come soon, maybe even by the time this review gets posted). The wireless and the milkshake machine are expected to be operational this week.
The grilled cheese + BLT fixings (see the menu item entitled “The Happy Waitress”) contained loads of crispy bacon and was served up quick. The baklava was flaky with just enough honey. I will return to eat a meal from the Greek Food section of the menu. The owners are Greek and the Hillsborough Road George’s is the first location.
The decorations include a lunch counter, jukebox and pictures of Hollywood legends on the walls & tables. Not much on the website, but it does tell you what you need to know: George’s Diner is open 24 hours serving Home Style cooked meals.
