Geno's Barbeque reopens in Miami Township

Cincinnati’s moniker might be Porkopolis but it’s a Miami Township restaurant that goes whole hog on barbeque.

Geno’s Barbeque & Family Diner celebrated its grand reopening yesterday. The restaurant relocated from its spot in historic Milford to 1241 SR 131 in Miami Township.

Husband and wife team Geno and Vanessa Walker kept the restaurant’s same country-kitchen atmosphere and its offerings of pit-smoked barbecued pork spare ribs, buffalo wings, pulled pork, and chicken with hot sides (deep fryer foods, along with baked beans and macaroni and cheese) and cold sides (salads).

New menu items include prime rib and steaks and the diner plans to hold a "Fish Fryday" every Friday, offering blackened salmon, tilapia, whiting and catfish.

Also offered are catering options and Vanessa’s cakes and confections. And according to the Walkers, all menu items are homemade, including the restaurant’s signature barbeque sauce – but this is one recipe Geno won’t spill.

“The secret’s in the sauce,” he said, with a laugh.

The move has especially delighted one Miami Township man. Paul Knepp, owner of nearby Gemini Pools, says he ate at the Milford restaurant nearly every day. After he was unable to stop in for his usual breakfast fare for two days, the Walkers called to see if he was okay.

“There is a service and attitude not matched by any other restaurant,” said Knepp, who recommends the mesquite-smoked pulled pork sandwich.

For more information, call the restaurant at 513-248-4533.
