Since Gene's stop and Go has changed hands. It's service and food has improved a hundred fold. Everything is great always clean fresh and more than I can eat. They also give a 20% discount to military and veterans.

Pretty bad when a fast food restaurant runs out of french fries! They offered tater tots but we passed on those. The burgers were good but over-cooked. Gene's does offer a veteran's discount which is rare and appreciated.

Sad to see this place go down hill. The first time I went both my burger and fries were cold and greasy, limp even. The second time we sat in the window with our car for 15 minutes with many many employees passing the window without so much as it'll just be a minute or even a SMILE! We ended... More

This little burger joint caught our eye at lunchtime on Father's Day. It's a walk up to the window and eat at a picnic table or take-out kind of place. The burgers were really top-notch, sizable, and freshly fried. French fries were also freshly made, clearly not out of a bag of frozen spuds. The two dads in our group... More

Menu was confusing it shows two different prices for their hamburgers then says you can pay $1 more to make it a basket which I thought was pretty expensive I thought the hamburger prices should of included something. You can get a small shake with the basket, but they are so tiny why even bother. So I ordered three of... More

Stopped here for a quick lunch. Handmade cheeseburger with all the fixings. It does take longer than McDonald's because they cook the burgers after you order....they also have tater tots. Popular place, one critique would be the milkshakes......it would be better if they were made by hard ice cream even if you had to pay a little more, it would... More

Gene's closed for a while and reopened last summer under new ownership. Their menu has been pared way down but it has only improved the experience overall. Service here is NOT speedy but it's because everything is freshly prepared to order. The soft-serve is a long-standing tradition in Montesano. The burgers are fresh, juicy and tasty and enormous. Even the... More

No a quickie fast food service. The food takes a little longer to prepare cause it is not flash frozen. The wait is worth every minute.

We are so lucky in Montesano to have such a good quality, delicious and filling burger joint. No pre-formed frozen patties with fillers here. All fresh ingredients and perfect seasoning! Another good thing? You can make it a deluxe at no extra charge!
