A BBQ joint you can bring anyone to for lunch and dinner.

The ribs are smoked heavenly, brisket slow cooked to perfection, great choice of sides and lively atmosphere. An unpretentious place to dine on BBQ, WHEN it is either too cold to start up the grill or your just in the mood for some smoked BBQ. I have been to the Culver road location at least 5... read more

I'm not a local, but this is kind of a local joint. Good food. Lots of beer. Recommend it! Not just barbecue. I would absolutely go again.

had lunch here in 2012; good food and nice atmosphere. Mostly BBQ on the menu but a few other things. Interesting WW2-themed art on the walls.

Almost always a great time. Always packed. Only bad thing on the menu was the catfish. Tasted like swamp. Waiter gave us a gift card because of it which was nice. Some of the waiting staff are very good at their jobs and can remember massive orders without writing them down. Always recommend this place to out-of-towners.

I went for lunch around 1pm the other day with my dad. The food was amazing, best pulled pork I have ever had and the portions were HUGE. The service was less than friendly and it took forever for our two meals to show up. Despite that I will go back because the food is so good.

Where the consistency. I mean every single time I go to the dinosaur BBQ, their ribs taste the same...gots to at... More

This was a great relaxed place to go for dinner with little kids. The pulled pork was delicious. Also loved the macaroni salad, French fries & the raspberry tea. Would definitely recommend this place.

For a northern city Rochester has more than its share of BBQ restaurants; we have been to many of them but Sticky Lips is clearly the best. On a recent visit for lunch we started with an appetizer of BBQ Chicken Drumsticks. They were fantastic and were served with a delicious BBQ sauce with hints of maple plus they were... More

My husband and I dined in today for lunch and I wasn't pleased at all with the ribs. They were only heated up and cold inside. The chicken had a nice rub on it and I appreciated that. The corn bread was very delicious. It melts in your mouth like delicious buttery cake. I didn't like the baked beans either,... More

Excellent food, live music (Jefferson Road location). New building on a busy thoroughfare. Plenty of parking, owner and staff dedicated to customer service.
