Geno’s has long been a University District icon, known over the years as an Italian eatery. The change in ownership in October of 2013 brought Geno’s into the popular family of pubs that include The Elk and Two Seven in Spokane, Moon Time in Coeur d’Alene and The Porch in Hayden. Though the menu has changed, Geno’s is continuing its long tradition of good food and friendly service in neighborhoods where guests are welcomed by a casual feels-like-home atmosphere.
The menu includes some of the same favorites known in their other pubs, like The Elk’s famous reuben sandwich (guests have the choice of a gluten-free bun for all sandwiches) and Moon Time’s 74th St. gumbo, but the menu is adorned with items that are unique to Geno’s, such as the Cuban pork sandwich and Geno’s chicken wings with your choice of three sauces. Each one of these neighborhood pubs have their own qualities that keep the locals coming back for more. For a new twist on this menu, Geno’s has French fries—which none of the other restaurant locations have—thanks to the fryer, in addition to the ever-popular, and addicting, roasted corn pasta.
Staying in tradition with the other pubs, Geno’s menu appeals to the masses not only in taste but in price. Menu items range in price from $5 for a cup of the 74th St. gumbo to around $10 for most salads, burgers and sandwiches, with entrees maxing out at $13.25 for the ravioli. No one leaves Geno’s hungry or broke.Geno’s is a perfect place to unwind and support the Gonzaga Bulldogs, with plenty of TVs to watch the games, great tap selections, cocktails, and of course, the tasty food and good company they are known for.
During the warmer months, guests can enjoy outdoor dining on the patio, and take note, the kitchen stays open late, until 10pm Sunday through Wednesday and 11pm Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Geno’s is a great spot to meet up after the game, or for that matter, any event taking place at the Spokane Arena, thanks to its close proximity.
With the success its sister restaurants have seen over the years, Geno’s is already establishing itself as another neighborhood gem the community is quickly embracing.
