Alright all you Fall Foliage Fanatics, its time to get out and show yourself...so we can judge you harshly. And where is the best place to view the Fort's Fall Foliage? Near the trees, obviously.
George's Specialty Foods on White Settlement faces the Trinity, northwest of downtown and all the large trees along the river bank. When the weather is nice you can sit at the outside tables, feast on a guy-roo and enjoy the foliage. That's right, George's is a Greek place with delicious guy-roos (for more informaiton on guy-roos, please read this previous review), greek sandwiches and all sorts of greek foods and oddities to prepare for your ultimate greek-themed Fall Foliage Festival.
This part of White Settlement is occupied by only three things - the river, Froggy Bottoms (Fall Foliage Followers are not welcome) and George's. The place looks like an old mechanics shop with big roll down windows on the front and a floor that is angled towards the front. Inside, there are about 10 tables. A row of refrigerators filled with greek foods, cheeses and meats lines one wall and the cooking happens behind a set of shelves with all sorts of canned and bottled items. George's also has a selection of olives for those of you who like those disgusting things.
The menu at George's is limited but they focus on serving good food instead of just putting everything they could possibly make on the menu (cough cough...cheesecake factory...cough cough). There are only two things at George's that I have had and they are the only two things I'll ever have because they're all I need and everything I want all at the same time. First is the guy-roo. Second is the item that put George's on the map - the greek sandwich.
This is one of my favorite guy-roos in town but I only eat it one way. I order it to go and let it sort of meld together on my way home. It's got the combination of meat, greek yogurt sauce and slices of tomato and it comes in a soft, warm pita. When you eat it there, the greek yogurt is on top of the meat. When you get it to go its all wrapped up like a delicious little baby so when you get home, the yogurt has spread throughout the delicious bab...pita. George's has never failed me in the guy-roo category.
But the sign at George's tells of a different option. George's holds 45 patents on the Greek Sandwich. Its a pita filled with sliced turkey and a greek salad - all in one. It's healthy but delicious. I think you can also get the sandwich on french bread. I've witnessed people ordering this and assume they are reasonable so it is probably good. But I'm a pita man myself.
On a nice day (like the ones we've had lately), George's will sometimes open the giant window-doors and, as the Fifth Dimension once side, "let the sunshine in." From the tables inside with the windows open, or the tables outside, you can sit and view all the Fall Foliage you can stand. And we'll judge you.
If you've never been, give it a try and let everybody know what you think. If you've got any other suggestions on what to eat at George's, lets hear 'em.
George's is located at 4424 White Settlement Road.
If you've got places that I need to eat at, please let me know. Please also remember that if you send me a suggestion outside of Fort Worth, I'll kindly respond but it wont make it as a review.
