Geno’s Italian Deli in Bowling Green, Kentucky has no shortage of options. In addition to pizza, they serve breakfast, salads, gyros, wraps, dogs, pasta, sandwiches, entrées, and even fruit smoothies. If I am ever able to visit again, I would like to try one of their sandwiches. They have a good meat selection that they cut fresh for each sandwich. However, being that I am not The Sandwich Fan, I looked forward to having some of their pepperoni pizza on this trip.
Geno’s offers pizza-by-the-slice as well as three different sizes of whole pies that range from 12 to 16 inches. I went with the quicker pizza-by-the-slice option as I was just swinging in for a brief lunch. When they brought it out to me, I thought the pizza looked kind of bland or cookie-cutter, like it was a frozen pizza they just heated up. However, its looks were deceiving, and my taste buds were more impressed with it than my eyes. It was somewhat doughy, but I didn’t mind as I liked the taste of their dough. Also, the nice flavor of their sauce still stood out on the thicker crust. It had enough cheese, but there wasn’t anything too special about it or the pepperoni. Gino’s Italian Deli is worth a visit, and I’m confident that you can find something on their menu that peaks your interest. For pizza specifically, it would likely be better to try one of their whole pies, and there is also an option called Mister B’s Pizza and Wings in the area.
