In my quest for authentic barbecue in the Northeast, Geneva’s Blues House Southern BBQ emerged as a true gem, defying all my expectations. Geneva’s has redefined what it means to savor genuine Southern flavors.


From the moment I stepped inside, the air was thick with the enticing aroma of slow-cooked meats and smoky goodness. The ambiance, reminiscent of a lively blues joint down South, set the stage for an unforgettable dining experience.

Best Baked Beans!

Opting for the Saint Louis style ribs, I was met with a symphony of smoky flavors and a sauce with just the right kick, not overpowering but perfectly balanced. Accompanied by their unique baked beans, possibly flavored with a hint of cinnamon, and a side of delectable mac and cheese.


But what truly sets Geneva’s apart is its unwavering commitment to excellence. In a region where barbecue often falls short, Geneva’s refuses to compromise on quality. Each dish is crafted with care, preserving the essence of true Southern barbecue.

And the Yelp reviews speak for themselves:

  2. "First time here and highly recommend it! The food is worth the wait, especially the burnt ends. The atmosphere feels like home, and the staff is friendly."
  3. "Super kind and friendly service with delicious food. A relaxing place to eat; I'll definitely be going back!"
