Find a Relaxing & Unique Pub Experience at George’s in Jenks

By on April 24, 2012

It’s quirky, it’s fun, it’s relaxing, and it’s totally unique. It’s a pub of a different color. Decent beers, good food, great staff, and diversity of customer basis. Diversity is key here. At George’s Pub, in Jenks, OK, you’ll find your typical business man enjoying a brew after a hard days work, happy hour people, girl’s night out, few jocks in the corner, some respectable and tattooed people showing off an outstanding array of colors in clothes and skins, and couple’s soaking some rays in the outside patio area with their chihuahua’s. All are welcome at this establishment. And they make you feel that way too.

I’m sitting on the patio, enjoying the peace and the good selection in tunes. I see the happy, panting faces of the canines enjoying the cool breeze of the shade under the popped umbrellas. Beer in hand, I feel a sense of ease. This place is nice. Not just the decor, but in general. I really fit in here. Honestly, not too often do I feel I comfortable in certain places. Anyway, I’m here for the beer and food. And I heard rumor of the delectable fish’n’chips here, and I’m a sucker for that dish. Even on burger night (Wednesday nights), I’m ordering the fish. I’ll let my friends order the burgers.

Starting off our night, I’m enjoying some Great Divide “Denver Pale Ale”. It’s on draft. Perfect. A refreshing brew. Clear amber color with a nice frothy head that’s slow to dissipate. Floral hops, bready malts, and light citrus aroma permeates the nose. Again in the taste, floral and citrusy hops, bready yeasts and caramely malts, with a nice balance of earthiness throughout. At 5.4%abv, a perfect summer brew on draft at this joint.

Awww, food arrives. Fish’n’chips with a beer batter on top of steak frites/matchstick fries. The batter on the cod fish was thin and flavorful. Light and delicate and falling apart in my mouth. The fries were well seasoned. The dish overall was probably the top example of fish’n’chips I’ve tried in the surrounding area. Seriously! I can’t say numero uno, as I haven’t tried every fish’n’chips around, but damn this was good, man!

My friends ate the burgers, as it was burger night. Black angus burgers charred to a nice degree with plenty of topping choices. The consensus from them was the burgers were good. Not great though. A tad on the salty side, but still very enjoyable. Nothin an accompanying beer can’t handle. And as natural Oklahoma fashion, they were cooked till dead…or in other words, well done. Really, it’s OK to eat a burger at medium. Pink in the middle. Trust me. It is definitely more flavorful that way. Many restaurants and pubs don’t do this though. But whatever. That really won’t detour me from eating there again. Oh, and their nacho’s and beer battered jalapenos are are great as well.

As the sun dropped, we paid our tab and parted ways. This picture doesn’t do it justice. For some weird reason, mostly everybody moved inside instead of staying on the patio. Its great weather out. Oh well.

If you’re feeling different and want to eat some great pub food from a varied menu, and want to enjoy some good brews, then mosey over to Georges. Everybody is welcome. The food is great. The prices are great. The beers are plentiful. The staff is very nice. And most of all, you feel comfortable and welcome.
