It reads like an advertisement[edit]

This article reads like an advertisement, or a press release for George Webb's. I was going to re-write, but it would take too long. I still may do it, if I get the time.

It should say when George Webb opened, how, why, what is served, a little history, and where there are locations. I like the restaurant myself, but if I want to read about how good it is, I'll look at its website. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.118.232.189 (talk) 01:44, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

YesY Done Someone made wholesale changes from my original work on the article and puffed it up with marketing tone. I have undone back several months to clean it up. Somehow it slipped past my watchlist. Thanks for bringing it up so I could take care of the article. Royalbroil 11:58, 22 August 2010 (UTC)


I have a mother who worked for Webb's for 25-1/2 years (June 1978-December 2003). She first ended up working there when my father could not get back to working regularly in the construction industry. She needed to stay there for financial and health insurance reasons once they divorced in 1982. She still had to support me since I was entering high school in the fall of that year.

George Webb's has a strong following with wait and cook staff working for them over 20-30 years. It could be the fact that it always paid you MINIMUM WAGE PLUS TIPS. For a period of time (approximately 5-6 years), full-time employees could get paid health insurance by the Webb's my mom worked at. Combine the above-two benefits (plus a weekly check and paid vacation time up to 2 weeks/year) plus regular customer loyalty, you get a very successful restaurant.

The following products keep winning the BEST food contests per year: coffee, burger, and chili. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thelinda (talkcontribs) 21:20, 22 August 2012 (UTC)
