Genos was founded by one of Phillys own, Joey Vento in 1966. The man had two boxes of steaks, a few hot dogs, and $6 in his pocket when he turned on the grills at 9th and Passyunk. Neighboring joints predicted hed last six months, tops. Geno’s uses only the best, thinly sliced rib-eye steak so it grills up nice and juicy (never greasy). Our onions are always fresh, our bread always comes straight from the oven, and our cheese well its cheese. You can never really go wrong with cheese. Most people think our sandwiches are perfect just the way they are but if you want to add ketchup, mustard, or relish, weve got all three ready and waiting.
