Cuisines: Chinese
Restaurant details

From the outside and inside it looks very unassuming. A few tables to sit down and florescent lights with a big tv are most of
the decor but don’t let that fool you. We got a number 2 lamb noodle soup and a garlic and spicy noodle dish. Both were fantastic and full of taste. The noodles were the best part chewy and delicious. The broth was very tasty and not very salty and the noodles in the other dish had lots of garlic and some greens to bring out even more flavor. Not a huge menu but enough to satisfy just about anyone. A must stop if your around the area. Plenty of parking on street or across the street in a lot and all free. We will be back!

Not for the faint of heart, everything that I've had at Gene's has had bold flavors. Love the hand-pulled noodles, whether it is in the traditional soup or others. Like the Hot and Sour soup with dumplings. Don't forget to bring your wallet, Cash only. No table service.

What makes this place great is the food. period. Do not expect a decor, table service, etc. It is a simple place with a simple menu and to-go flatware. You may feel like you won't get a seat, but it always works out in the end.

So the tip is: calibrate your expectations!

The Noodles are hand puled, flat, fat variety. The options are very simple, but oh so delicious. Get the basic version with some added protein and you won't be disappointed. The Cumin lamb noodles are also very good.
There are other options like sandwiches, dumpling soups and a few other authentic dishes. They are good, but to me the noodles are the reason to go.

Incredible simple homemade authentic cuisine. Too many accolades for uniqueness and originality. Like a place you would find buried in the inner city. Excellent lunch menu.
