The only downside to eating here is the parking. There's a very small lot that can't accommodate the joint's popularity. You have to hunt around for street parking, and avoid tow-away zones. But it's well worth the trouble and even if you do park farther away, the scrumptious smell will lead you to your destination.
Enter into the restaurant and the first thing you'll notice is the decor. Colorful items hang from the ceiling and on the wall, and even a carousel horse beckons you to sit on him. It's a barrage to your senses. The pizzas are huge, and are the best you'll taste outside of New York and Chicago, I'd wager. If you order pasta, beware. It comes in large portions and is seated atop a pizza crust. All the servings at Generous George's are generous - down to the drinks. If you fast before you come and have enough room for an appetizer, might I suggest the spinach artichoke dip with chips. MMMM. I'm getting hungry.
I'm a pretty plain Jane when it comes to pizza, so I usually stick with the regular old pepperoni and cheese, please. However, as plain as that is, they have some more exotic combinations for you. There's the cheeseburger pizza, the hawaiian pizza and the make-your-own - with any combination you want. For drinks, I'd go with the pink lemondade. Their fountain drinks, however, actually taste like fountain drinks. They're a little sweeter than normal. I have had the fettucini on the pizza crust, and the spaghetti on the pizza crust. I don't like that the crust gets soggy near the end, but by then you're too full anyway.
This place attracts families with kids like flies- which in my case is a drawback, as I'd prefer to not have them running everywhere hog wild. But you're in such a great mood and having such great food, you care less and less about the little munckins around you. Their excitement rubs off.
The pizzas here are a bit on the pricier side, but not terribly bad. It'll run you about $13 for a large, each topping will add about a dollar. And half toppings cost the same as a whole topping. Drinks are around $1.25 and appetizers between $2.50 (garlic bread with cheese) to $7 (spinich and artichoke dip). But you get what you pay for.
