Less consistent than Dinosaur but often better

Also usually less crowded. This place is on "hotel row". If I'm staying at one of the hotels this is my go to place for dinner. Dinosaur may be the classic but the good in this place is usually better and you don't have to wait as long to get in.

When with two friends for lunch and it was great. Server was on her game - she kept glasses of water full and we got our food really fast. Since this was a lunch hour it was very much appreciated. I had the small rib platter. Was 3 meaty spare ribs, two sides and cornbread. A nice plate of food... More

It's all about the ribs. Delicious and plentiful. Excellent service and reasonable prices to top it off.

Beer and wine served. Lower dining room is ok I prefer upstairs no elevator. This is just noth of Jim Browns restaurant... More

The pulled pork....the ribs....those are specialties you'll really enjoy at Sticky Lips. I tried the fish fry on a Friday and the batter was way too heavy. I should have known better. I love the ribs, the pork, and the barbequed chicken. The atmosphere is fun and the staff is, too. It's a great family place. And they DO cater... More

When the person that takes your order doesn't bring you your food, there's a good chance that things can go wrong. It did. The first time it was wrong. The second time it was wrong. Then the first person shows up and blames the second person...... See where I'm going here? Also, it shouldn't take 20 minutes to get two... More

We enjoy Sticky Lips for its excellent and quick service, it's delicious food and the original ambience of a genuine BBQ joint. Our waitress was funny and helpful, the collard greens were delicious. We usually order one of the Painted Ladies, a combination plate that is always a treat. Order the brisket for some tender delicious meat.

I have high expectations every time I visit (it is a popular and respected establishment) though always leave with the same feeling... The place has history and ethos, the ambience is pleasantly low-key, the service is appropriately rugged. But the food is not good enough to unite those ambivalent qualities and turn them into a memorable experience (that I believe... More

Good BBQ in Rochester, Ribs and Brisket are good, sides are plentiful and well done, service is friendly and timely. The weekend Chicken and Waffle special is a little underwhelming.
