George’s is located at a bustling intersection in Georgetown, conveniently located within walking distance of the White House, Georgetown Harbor, George Washington University and more.

You may find a line at our charming townhouse turned restaurant, but it will be worth the wait! George’s was opened in 1982 and is a traditional Middle Eastern restaurant with hints of Lebanese and Syrian flavors. As one of the only late-night dining options in Georgetown our customers have come to rely on us as a central meeting place, day or night. Many of our guests leave behind a bill of choice, taped to our walls with a handwritten message. We have been fortunate enough to serve politicians such as former U.S. President Bill Clinton, comedians like D.C. native Dave Chapelle and many more local and global celebrities.

Absolutely everything we make is homemade daily, using only the freshest ingredients from recipes that we continuously test and improve over time to create new interpretations of our favorite dishes. We offer everything from kebabs to seafood to a variety of vegetarian options. Enjoy the deliciousness to stay or to go.

For first-timers trying Middle Eastern food, not to worry, one of our team members will be happy to help you navigate our menu and find what will likely become your newest craving.

Best Shawarma around, if you're from out of town and you want to try something that will hit the spot, Chicken shawarma sandwich or beef shawarma is the way to go!!

This place gets 5 stars. We were in DC for 2 nights and we went twice. Check out the specials menu or the mixed grill. The food is amazing. Would happily go again.

Love this place. Great late night food. Lots of selection between ethnic and American. In love with their steak and cheese... Even over the falafel and gyro.

They were not.
