Restaurant Description

Sometimes Bigger Is Better. When I walked in Genny's Diner and passed the mirror ball and aquarium, I saw the biggest hamburger I'd ever seen: The Sweet Daddy Burger. I not only needed a fork but also a forklift to hoist it. The triple-decker is made of 1 ¼ pounds of ground chuck and was as delicious as it was huge ($10.50). Best Side Dish: Frickled Pickles; these delicious fried pickles are served with a horseradish dipping sauce made of homemade Ranch dressing and hot sauce ($5.95). Best Dessert: peanut butter cream pie ($5.95). Genny's Diner: 2227 Frankfort Avenue, Louisville, KY 40206; (502) 893-0923.

This restraunt if thats what you can call it was the nastiest place I have ever been. The owner was rude the waitress looked under the influence of something. The food was nothing but a plate of grease and I will never return there and I don't recommend anyone else to ggo there.

It's a little off the beaten path, but I like that. I've been going there for almost two years, and I haven't as much as seen an argument in there. The food is great and the owners are the nicest people you would ever wanna meet. No one hits on my wo ...

Very nice out of the way place. I met one of the owners. The whole staff was so nice. The food was unbelievable. Not what you would expect in a bar. More like food from the highlands or east end. The pizza is like no pizza I've eaten before. Try th ...

Well I've heard all the talk about Barleys at work for four years. Never went in there till yesterday. My loss. I passed it every day, and just never took time to stop, but I will from now on. Coldest beer and 50 cent pool tables. I felt comfortable ...

Frickled pickles are super! however they are on the pricey side. I have never had any bad food here, but don't expect a 'sterile' environment...!
