Genaros on Taylor St

After reading recent posts on this board I talked some friends out of going to Cafe 28 on Saturday and drove down to Genaros instead.
Upon walking thru the door I had this feeling of old neighborhood mom and Pop time warp Italian at its best,this is realllly gonna be good!!!
However this was just not the case.Pork chops w/potatoes and peppers arrived tableside looking really good,however I soon discovered that the spuds along with the two strips of green pepper were fused to the dried out chops leaving me to believe that the entire meal was lowered into the deepfrier untill golden brown.
Pasta with broccoli and mushrooms was equally dissapointing. The pasta and broccoli were boiled to the consistency of baby food and served up with canned mushrooms.
I really wanted this place to be good.Has anyone else been here latley,did we just hit it on a bad night, or were we just the victims of a "swill shill"?
