All the locals crowd into Billie Genes daily for delicious down home cooking. Mondays features their swuash casserole. I order it and then order some “to go”. Everything I have eaten here is wonderful. Located along the river with outdoor seating available.

They are Very Fast for the Quality Food they serve, but if you order when a bunch of other orders are being prepared, there will be a wait. Call for the best time to go, or go to the 'Hippie Festival', smell the air out... More

No. There is a lot of seating room. Of course Sundays are very busy. There may be a short wait.
