Genos, Monroe
Any of you twin city folk have a review of Genos? I’m in Monroe a dozen times a year or so and the only time it ever crosses my mind is when I swing by Mohawk. I plan to stop by next time I’m in town. It must be decent to be around as long as it has.

I haven't lived in Monroe in several years, but growing up there it was decent. I always preferred genusas.

Decent is correct. Go to Genusa's...they just reopened.

10-4. I’ve been to genusas, but it’s been years. It’s always been good.

Decent place, owner's son likes to go pilfering through cars so be sure to lock your vehicle up in the parking lot.

I like Genos for the nostalgia. Oldest restaurant in Monroe I believe. The food is pretty good. But as mentioned Genusa’s is where to go for Italian.



Retracted. After more thought no restaurant needs judging right now.

I’m not sure, but I’m sure of this. It looks the same today as it did when they opened.

It’s old as shite too. May even be older than Genos. I think they both opened mid/late 50’s.

Lived here most of my life and only eaten there once, but I’m not a big Italian food eater either. Nothing really stood out about the meal but the restaurant itself is sort of a dump.

As others said genusa’s is where most ppl go for Italian.

20 years ago it was a nice semi nostalgic Italian restaurant with a patio. The food was good and you kinda expected to see some gangsters smoking cigars in the corner playing cards. It had a nice patio that was good for date nights.

Genusa’s food was better IMO and it was a place that was more formal. Kids would go there for prom and you would not feel out of place in a suit and tie at dinner. Their prices reflected this as I remember it being quite a bit more pricy than Geno’s.

Neither one is a bad choice. They are just different.

About once a month my wife, myself, and another couple like to try a restaurant that none of us have eaten at before. We will drive up to an hour and a half. Sort of a “restaurant road-trip” and Monroe falls in this range. Genos is one of the few places in Monroe that none of us have tried.

I love Geno's, just dont get over there much. But, chicken cacciatore is very good. Nice old nostalgic atmosphere.

You’re thinking of Freddy Cascio’s.
Genusa’s is on Park Ave beside Forsythe park

I was referring to cascios. He had a review of them but later edited the post. I’ve been to genusas and enjoyed it but remember it being somewhat expensive. Of course I was a college student at the time so everything was expensive to me then.
