The reviewers who want to complain about the neighborhood or the greasy fries just don't get it. That's Gene's. The classic cheeseburgers are great, if basic, and it you really want the full Gene's experience get it "Frisco style" which means that the entire hamburger, bun and all, is smothered in chili. The shakes are wonderful. But it's the onion rings. Oh, my, the onion rings. Actually cut and battered fresh daily and fried to the perfect combination of crispy outside and sweet and tender onion outside. SO good. Our server was delightful and our food came out piping hot in just a few minutes. You might find a burger more to your liking at a better price but it's won't be lunch at Gene's.

Gene's is a town treasure. You get a good burger on the cheap. The food is made fresh to order. Don't be in a hurry. You get good service and the onion rings are the bomb.

I understand staying true to your roots and staying in the area that you started in, but when your sitting in the front windows eating and you see police arresting people from the meth motel across the street or the local vagrants staring at you through the window, it's kind of a turn off. The burgers are decent but nothing to get excited about. They offer basic burgers and sides but that's about it. I've been there a few times and was unimpressed each time.

My visit to Gene's took me right back to the 60's and the little burger joints of the good old days. Old time cafe feel and look with old time service to match. Gene's isn't on the beaten path...... or anything even close to a path...... it's a hidden treasure that you have to be looking for to find.

My wife grew up in the Falls and remember this place as a little girl. She says it's changed a little bit..... but not much. Food was and still is great if old fashioned is the way you like it.

Lunch today, very good food! Wait staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. Chili cheese burger was delicious. Curly fries good. Worthwhile place for old fashioned burger lunch stop.
