Great atmosphere and food. We drive an hour just for it and its worth it. Have not encountered better BBQ. Maybe just as good but not better. Sides are just as great as the BBQ.

Brought in one night (would have rather eaten there as it is a cool place worth checking out) for 6 of us and it was a hit. We tried pretty much everything from fish, to chicken and beef - everything was excellent. Sides were also very solid and the portions were quite large. Look forward to going again and eating...

A picture's worth a thousand words. Loved everything on the Combo Plate. Also enjoyed the Fried green tomatoes & Fried pickles. Beer is by the bottle; no draft. (I think it's way over-priced!). Portions are BIG. The line to get in IS sometimes long...but it's worth the wait. Will return!

This is my favorite Rochester BBQ -- probably prefer the ribs at Dino BBQ, but for everything else my choice is Sticky Lips! They also have a lot of really great vegetarian choices -- love the Portobello sandwich and the vegetarian garbage plate. The location on Atlantic is the best, but if you're out in Henrietta that location is also... More

It was quick service, excellent food that 'fell off the bone'. The atmosphere and wait staff were great. It was a good place to have a relaxing businees lunch.

I came here for lunch with two friends. I had heard wonderful things about this place and was looking forward to a good meal. I ordered "sticky cakes", their version of crab cakes. Big mistake! It was awful. The cakes were rock hard on the outside, clearly not freshly made, in fact rather old. The inside tasted almost rotten. As... More

The food was excellent. The sauces were great... the meats were great... The service was great. Our only complaint is that beers were really pricey for a BBQ joint. $5 bottle domestics and $6 for a micro brew is a bit excessive. I will go back again. I may just stick to water ;)

We met our friends here this past weekend for supper. I had been looking forward to a delicious burger. We sat at the bar first - the bartender was very nice and the draft beer was good. The waitress at our dinner table was terrible. She brought our beers and then could not remember which ones were which. It turned... More
