I was taken here by my friends for my birthday. We had a ball!! The food was very good, the hostess were very nice and attentive to us. Not just the one serving us but the others stopped by to say hello and welcome us before the show started. They kept us laughing. I would recommend this to anyone looking... More

A group of us visited for their Sunday gospel brunch recently and it was great fun. Probably not a place for families and young kids, but entertaining all the same. The hosts were great and really engaging although if you don't like being abused or forced to skull your drink before a refill, maybe this isn't the place for you.... More

I took my family for my father in law's birthday to the Sunday brunch. My waiter was over the top rude in an attempt to be amusing. The show was a lip synching mess. The staff did not appear to be into it and they were borderline harassing you for tips. The booze was so cheap it gives you an... More

What a night I had! Being from UK we had found this place via Trip Advisor - best find. We arrived at Lips for dinner, drinks and a fun time - that's exactly what we got. Me and my friend had no idea what to expect of this place other than knowing it was going to be drag queens. It... More

Lips has the best drag entertainment in California next to heading up to West Hollywood. I have gone to 4 of their shows so far on my way to complete my bucket list of seeing every show. So far I have attended B@#@$ Bingo (Wednesday), Glitz and Glam (Friday), Taboo (11 pm Saturday), and Gospel Brunch (Sunday). Gospel Brunch by... More

Went here on Sunday night with a bunch of my girlfriends. It wasn't a crowded show, but it was still a great time! The show was very entertaining. The $22 entry was waived if you spend $15 in food (per person). The drinks were a bit pricey but to be expected. The decor and atmosphere were both great.

We had a great time. Food was great and the show was fun. They do make drinks on the strong side (they even mention it on their menu do watch out). Entertainment was really fun. With all the queens doing their performances and the great food we had a good night. Highly recommend.

I don't usually do drag shows, so totally just not my thing, so I like went w/a friend 'cuz she wanted to. We did the early show which turned out great since we actually got to park in the lot as well as got in easily w/o a line. Parking and lines was like a circus for the next show... More
