“This is not Italian food!”
Review of Geno's Italian & American - CLOSED

Geno's Italian & American
Cuisines: Italian, Pizza
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Maybe I have just been around to many Italian families, but this is not Italian food. Their Pizza is greasy and not very good. I have no idea why so many folks flock there but I will never go back. The decor is date, dark and dingy and the food is by far one of the worst places I have eaten at in my life. Will never go there again, not even if offered a free meal there. Sorry I hate to be so rude but I must be honest.

For the price, Geno's absolutely has the best food in downtown West Jefferson. Great homemade lasagna is the best anywhere around here. They also have good sandwiches, subs and burgers. Waiters and waitresses are friendly, and everyone gets free breadsticks as an appetizer.

Basic menu and priced to suit anyone's budget. During the week the locals gather to play cards, Mah Jong, etc. in the main dinning room with the blessings of management...Country Hospitality!

I live in this town and cannot for the life of me figure out why people go here. The food on my one visit there was terrible. it's frozen industrial/commercial food straight out of the freezer. And even that wasn't cooked properly. If you're looking for frozen breaded shrimp or limp lettuce, this will be heaven for you.
