I enjoy BBQ but I'm not necessary a frequent flier nor am I an expert. HOWEVER, based on the crowd at this restaurant and the waiting line, this place does it well. The atmosphere at this restaurant was very fun. It is decorated with really old pictures and memorabilia and it has a great vibe. The food was good and... More

If you prefer the taste of sauce more than meat you might like this place but of the 6 of guests with us, only one of us liked it. Service was slow, exceptionally noisy and that was before the band started to play.

When you come to Rochester you will hear a lot about other BBQ places, but this one place can't be beat. Sticky Lips has some of the Best BBQ around. It is a wonderful place to enjoy a hearty meal and listen to some wonderful blues music. You get some wonderful food for a great price.

We are big fans of BBQ, so when we planned our trip to Rochester, we thought we’d give Rochester a try in terms of BBQ. We had to choose between Sticky Lips or Dinosaur BBQ, and since this was on the way to the Clubhouse Fun Center, we stopped for some BBQ. They have four sauces to choose from, including... More

Finally went here last weekend for the first time - absolutely dumbfounded they did NOT have macaroni and cheese available!!! In my mind, this is a signature dish that always accompanies brisket, ribs, etc. Ribs and pulled pork were ok, Carolina sauce was not as 'vinegary' as I would have liked. Plus I had requested the sauce be put on... More

We went for a late dinner with family and friends. They were very nice about letting us sit to wait for friends, and service was fast and friendly. I had the beef brisket with blue cheese, which was good, although not overly generous with meat or cheese. My husband had the ribs, also good, although the best part was trying... More

We were there on July 27, 2014. The ribs were excellent and better then some of the ones I tried in the southern states. I would rate them on par with ribs from Dinosaur BBQ. The ribs were not preboiled and was fatty with lots of flavor. When in Rochester next, I recommend this place.

I stopped by to get a couple of side dishes to go. The sizes was so many for the amount they charged. And they were okay nothing to get excited about. Looking around the place the atmosphere was not very inviting. It is an old building and it shows.
