Restaurants come and go in Fort Smith all of the time, so when one is still going strong after 30+ years, it is worth celebrating. Despite the constant rotation of restaurants in Fort Smith, there are several restaurants that have lasted. One of the best is George’s Restaurant. This restaurant has been open since 1982, and has carved a niche in the Fort Smith dining scene. Owners Alex and George Catsavis have created a semi-casual place that offers delicious menu items at reasonable prices. That may sound very common, but there are a few things that makes George’s one of the most uncommon restaurants in Fort Smith.
So what separates George’s from the rest of the pack? For one thing, they serve the best burgers in Fort Smith. These are not just the words of a food critic talking about his favorite restaurant. George’s recently won a Reader’s Choice Award in E! Fort Smith for Favorite Burger. The reason that they have that award is because a large percentage of Fort Smith loves the burgers at George’s.
The second reason has to do with the international menu items that George’s features. Since the Catsavis brothers are of Greek descent, it is only natural that they would have Greek dishes on their menu. It is difficult to find Greek cuisine (much less good Greek cuisine) outside of major metropolitan areas, yet George’s serves these great dishes right here in Fort Smith. George’s serves five Greek dishes. They are
1. Feta Burger
3. Greek Salad
4. Nick “The Greek” Wrap
5. Warmack Spaghetti.
All of these dishes played important roles in the lives of Alex and George. Now they have brought these dishes to their customers.
The last thing that sets George’s apart is that one of the owners is presently giving back to his community by serving as a city director. In 2010 George Catsavis ran for and won the city director’s seat for Ward 4 in Fort Smith. George ran in order to prevent Fort Smith citizens from having to suffer under yet another city tax, and to help keep the local government from engaging in unnecessary spending.
While many people may see George’s as “just another restaurant,” they are anything but ordinary. They offer award winning menu items, unique international dishes and strong values that many in Fort Smith share. If you have not tried George’s yet stop depriving yourself and come down to one of Fort Smith’s best restaurants. For more information please call 479-785-1199.
George’s Restaurant is located at 2120 Grand Ave, Fort Smith, AR 72901.
