The Best BBQ...No...BETTER!


Hollandia Dairy ~ December 2018


Geno helped cater our employee holiday party and Geno’s BBQ Catering was the greatest to say the least! Not only was Geno very personable with all of our employees his customer service was outstanding. His crew set everything up in a timely manner, kept the food warm, and kept us wanting more. His special recipe was by far the best and we hope to use him again in the near future. You won’t be disappointed! Many Thanks Geno!



Thank you,

Thank you for catering our Safety Fair on Saturday the 5th.  It was great to have you here - and the food was excellent!  I received only positive feedback from all so will definitely be contacting you for next year's Fair.  PS I discovered later in the day on Saturday that those fancy spiral hotdogs are good cold, too!  Thank you. November 5, 2018

We recently hosted our company picnic at Santee Lakes. They recommended Geno’s BBQ catering to us, and we were very glad they did. Geno was delightfully easy to work with, responded quickly to phone calls or emails, showed up and was ready to go right on time. Now for the good part – the food was incredible. Geno’s team makes a mean burger, spiral dog and grilled chicken. It was really tough to choose which to have, but with the quantity that Geno cooked up I would not have had to choose.  

We would easily and highly recommend Geno’s for your next company event. I am certain we will use them for ours.

We asked Geno's bbq catering to cater an event last Thursday for our church and we are so glad we did! The

arrangements leading up were most professional, clear and easy and he was very flexible when we had last

minute changes. The pulled pork and beans was fantastic! Geno arrived early and set everything up for us. I

have never seen a man that was so passionate about the services they provided. Their food was delicious from

beginning to end, we will be using Geno again.

Geno was referred to me by a co-worker who had his food at a church function. I'm so glad I took my co- 

workers advice. Our group ordered baby back ribs, chicken, beans and potato salad.The food was beyond 

delicious. The potato salad was gone in minutes. And that sauce! I highly recommend Geno's for your catering

In reference to hiring Geno’s BBQ Catering:

"I used Geno's Catering for my Ship's command picnic on June 30th, 2017. We had about 400 people at Santee lakes and his food was the highlight of the event. I had multiple guests thank me for finding a good caterer and almost everybody went back for seconds! Even a month following the event sailors are still talking about how amazing the food was!!

During the planning process Geno was very accommodating with my schedule and was easy to communicate with. Geno arrived early and I never had any doubts that things would not go as planned. His staff was professional, helpful and smiling the whole time. I can easily say he has been the easiest vendor I have ever had the privilege to work with. His business is clean and Geno is upfront and helpful about everything.

I would definitely work with Geno again and you better believe I haven't stopped thinking about those pulled pork sandwiches!"

Thanks again Geno, you were truly the best! Sorry I took so long to get back to you things have been hectic around here. I should pull into port Thursday or Friday and will be available to give you your banner back anytime before Wednesday. I plan to use you again around this time next year!

Convergence Community Church was blessed abundantly to have enjoyed Geno's BBQ & Catering for our anniversary celebration. The pulled pork sandwiches (with rockin' sauce) were flavorful and moist, ranch style beans and coleslaw rounded out the meal perfectly! Such a hit! Geno was FANTASTIC to work with! Not only was he super friendly, professional and uses integrity in his business, but he went above and beyond what we were looking for and worked with our short time frame. Looking forward to enjoying Geno's BBQ in the future!

I wanted to say thank you so much for everything you did for Flood tonight. We were truly blessed by you and your team! The general feedback I received from both our staff and congregation is that the food was delicious and your staff was very warm and friendly. Everyone certainly had enough to eat, and I appreciate you having the ability to feed our guests above the expected 200. 

Please email me the invoice for any extra charges, and I will get a check in the mail to you asap.

Grateful for you!

I would like to submit a testimonial regarding our 18th annual Taylor+Friends golf tournament.  

Geno's BBQ Catering catered our 2017 event this past July. We served lunch to over 110 participants and volunteers and by far was the best lunch we've offered to date! Geno himself and staff set up an impressive lunch line complete with tables, canopies and best of all served up delicious pulled pork entree with all the fixin's. We definitely will have Geno's Catering back for next years event too. Thanks Geno!

Using geno's BBQ catering for our annual HOA Summer Soire'e was an excellent decision. The BBQ was soooo good. All in attendance - about 50 were singing the praises of the food saying it was the best BBQ they ever had. Geno and his son Travis were such a pleaseure to work with. I highly recommened them. They are completely self-contained for an on-site event and made the entire process so simple. They've truly got BBQ down to a science.

My daughter, son-in-law to be, and myself had a wonderful time visiting with Geno and eating some amazing food! We learned to not drown our meats with condiments, but rather use his sauce to bring out the flavor of the food. My son-in-law to be does not like coleslaw....until he tried Geno's special recipe. The portions were large and the flavor/tastes were even bigger. I highly recommend the product and can't wait to eat it at our wedding event!

My wife and I used to eat at Geno's when he had a restaurant in El Cajon and the food was awesome and the atmosphere and service were great!

Hey Geno,
Back when the restaurant was open - myself and a few buddies would habitually visit twice a week - they would always get the Un-Burger and I would always get the #5 Pulled Pork Sandwich called "Wipeout". It was so incredibly tasty - soft/warm bun - perfectly seasoned and cooked.  I would pile it high with your incredible coleslaw and top it off with more Geno’s Hot BBQ sauce.  We were attentively looked after by none other than Geno himself, along with his sons - who would take the time to explain their menu and the food they were serving. They came around a few times while we were eating to check in and personally ensure we were having the best possible experience. I’ve been to many restaurants in my life - most have come and go. I was sad to see Geno’s leave Main St. in El Cajon. For years my friends and I have reminisced over our times chowing down at this legend of east county and hoped for its triumphant return. I was more than pleased to recently see the sauce return to the market within the last five years. I’m even happier to hear that a return of the restaurant could be possible soon. Thank for you the tasty food Geno!
