I've eaten at Genaro's since the '80s, and, over the years, the restaurant has been enlarged and remodeled, but the casual atmosphere and the quality of their Mexican food has stayed the same--very good. Now I don't mean nouvelle cuisine or Santa Fe style, I mean plain, good food and lots of it. The stuffed sopapilla, for which they are... More

This is a truly authentic New Mexican restaurant. It is not the easiest place to find, but the crowded parking lot lets you know that the locals (of which I used to be one) love this place. The food is good, but hot for people not used to red or green. The service is good but somewhat perfunctory. However, if... More

Totally old school restaurant. Great food, tables are all in one room (we got a more private booth).

Traveling through, NY to LA, my husband and I were tired of food "on the run" but had a schedule to keep. Hoping for some authentic Mexican fare and boy, did we find it! Service was quick and our waiter, Cody, was super nice and knowledgeable. Parking lot was full and there seemed to be lots of local folks there... More

Genero's is one of the best restaurants in Gallup. We eat there at least once or twice a month and it is always delicious and has great service.

I ordered the chicken and bean stuffed sopapilla, smothered with red and green sauce. The guacamole inside was a nice surprise. The sopa is stuffed after it's cooked, instead of cooked with the filling, but still very good. I'll be back to try more of their offerings.

We were looking for a different restaurant, found it, but there didn't appear to be any customers. We found the parking lot and street parking places around Genaro's full of a few cars and a LOT of pickups, all with NM, & AZ tags. Almost all the tables were occupied with what appeared to be local customers. We had the... More

How can a restaurant's food degrade so much in a period of just five months?? My wife and I stopped by in April on our way to ABQ and we were really pleased with the menu and service. Last week I ordered the chicken fajitas expecting a sizzling dish with lots of flavor. The chicken was tasty but the vegetables... More

I was disappointed when I thought I ordered 3 cheese enchiladas but received a beef taco, a pork tamale and one cheese enchilada. The waitress said this was what I ordered. Don't think so! I'm a vegetarian. We would not recommend the fajitas either. They don't arrive sizzling and you get just a few veggies. They were just so so.... More
