Georgio’s Cafe & Pizzeria
5236 Rumble Street
Situated practically across the street from Burnaby South Secondary School means a couple of things for places to eat in the area, of which there are a handful. The lunch hour can be a mad hectic time for non-students to try and get in for a bite to eat. As well, the eateries seem to make the wise decision of having special menu items which are priced and portioned accordingly for this hungry younger market. Thankfully, they aren’t limited to the kids and us adults can indulge in these quick, cheap eats too. One of these places is called Georgio’s Cafe & Pizzeria.
Despite the rather convoluted smattering of text and listing of offerings in their windows that seem rather mundane, a quick glance at the makeshift sign was what drew me in. “Filipino style BBQ”? What’s that I thought. Sitting inside was a pair of teenage girls apparently killing time on a break between classes perhaps. A man was behind the counter and I could hear some others in the back kitchen. As I was scanning the photo-included menu board, I quickly spotted the pork and chicken skewered barbecue items, thus answering my call to action.
