Very good BBQ, although I'll order "my old favorites" from now on

First of all, I love Sticky Lips restaurants....both of them. They have great BBQ and a great atmosphere inside. Today, the owner stopped over to our table and talked to us for quite a while. he was a very interesting man, and was telling us about his vision for where the restaurant (and the... read more

Let me start by saying...it is difficult to get in anywhere near dinnertime without an extended wait time. But, the food itself is worth the wait. The bbq is up there with some of the best in the country. The buffalo dip and homemade chips appetizer was heavenly and unique. The menu has plenty of options and variety and reasonable... More

This place knows how to do BBQ! Watch out Dinosaur-BBQ! I had the brisket and rib combo with mac n cheese and grits as my sides. The grits were phenomenal, the brisket and ribs were cooked perfectly! My friend and I split the deep fried pickles as an appetizer which were also very good with a very good tasting batter.... More

This has been a favorite gathering for a small group of friends. Pleasant staff, clean comfortable surroundings and a laid back atmosphere are appreciated. Most of all, no gloppy, sweet red sauce that too many places call BBQ. The sides are always fresh and tasty and generally we take styo boxes home for a snack later. The servings are more... More

Called an order in on a Sunday at 1:05. I was told 15-20 min to pick up. I got there at 1:30 and my meal wasn't ready yet- which wasn't a big deal. The girl says she would ring me out but could only take cash because there system was down. I only had my credit card on me. She... More

I love sticky lips decor. It's fun, it's interesting, and it's classic. A great place to bring someone from out of town. Good portions for a fair price. Quick service and tasty food. Food was delicious and everyone in my group enjoyed themselves.

Not only is the food outstanding but the portions are better than you get in almost any restaurant these days and yet the cost is extremely reasonable. I would recommend to anyone looking for an awesome BBQ with all the fixings!! :)

Had a great meal and everything was well prepared. My Fiancee and daughter both had leftovers and I left stuffed. Had the ribs with the dry rub which was quite good. Plan to wait a bit if you come on the weekend, but there's plenty of room to sit and have a beer while you're waiting for your food. A... More

Great food, highly recommend. The atmosphere is fun and unique and the BBQ, corn bread, nachos, fried pickles and sauces are out of this world! Great place!

There are a couple of good BBQ joints in Rochester, and this is one of the better ones. Their meat is good, their sides are better, and their portions are best. You definitely get your money's worth.
