Is your place to try out exotic and international beers, whether you’re looking for that brew you haven’t seen since El Salvador or are just bored with the selection at your local store.
Home of Qs Lounge and Dothas Juke Joint, this Jack London Square institution (located on the corner of Broadway and 2nd) showcases a variety of neo-soul, hip-hop, and blues acts, along with Monday Night Football (featuring video game tournaments and occasional guest appearances by the Raiderette Nation), live KSFO broadcasts recapping Raiders home games, barbecue, beer, and dinner buffets on the cheap. Birdlegg and the Tight Fit Blues Band perform every Saturday night at 9 p.m.; local and touring acts perform Friday nights at 8:30 p.m.
At Genny’s, the meats — especially the beef tri-tip — are infused with a satisfying smokiness, and the barbecue sauce is tasty (and smoky, too), if a bit on the sweet side. But it’s the side dishes that will keep you coming back: perfectly cooked collard greens with nice bit of heat; gingery candied yams; and soupy, savory Louisiana-style red beans and rice studded with chunks of tender pork shoulder.
