Foursquare Tips

  • In summer, pick enjoy brats from Gene's Bier Garden on the third-floor roof, where long picnic tables and four taps add to the German beer-garden setting.
  • The corned beef sandwich is the total package: fantastic corned beef and fresh rye bread generously flecked with caraway seeds, tangy pickles, a stone-ground mustard, and horseradish cheddar cheese.
  • The original Gene's opened in 1972. Last year, the Luszcz family opened this second location across town. The new Lincoln Square satellite is a two-story specialty grocery, ideal for grabbing picnic p
  • Great sausage shop and other foodstuffs can be found here...
  • One of the guys working the meat counter, no joke, looks like Robin Williams.
  • Grab a number for the deli counter as soon as you walk in.
  • No better place to buy amazing sausage.
  • Hidden gem of a rooftop. Sausages are tough to bet too!
  • The tip that you can't use reusable bags is not true. You cannot use them to gather items as you shop, you need to get a basket. You are more than welcome to use your reusable bags at checkout.
  • Great spot for kids treats like cookies and chocolates, cheaper than the bakery case at Selmarie.
  • Great sausages and breads for a nice lunch
  • Find the most obscure bottle of eastern European amaro you can find in the liquor section upstairs, then pair it with whatever suits your fancy from the butcher.
  • Mushroom Swiss sausage was right on!
  • For all Swedes: they have a bunch of Swedish things here too!
  • Rooftop is tall boys ($3...stiegl radler tallboys too!), solid goulash and potato pancakes. Wunderbar!
  • Eat lunch on the roof!
  • They do not let you use your reusable grocery bags due to shoplifting fears
  • You gotta go inside!!! Trust me.
  • Rooftop is great!
  • Beer, sausages, cheeses and more. Amazing!
