Gene's Haufbrau


Established in 1952, this old school saloon in South Charleston specializes domestic and import beer on draught; check out their chalkboards regularly as the offerings change seasonally. Gene's also serves over 10 kinds of sandwiches, from mesquite BBQ chicken to the neighborhood namesake "Avondale" with Angus beef and fried green tomato.
