There is a huge controversy in the Rochester community over which is the better BBQ joint: Syracuse-based Dinosaur or the local Sticky Lips. Personally, I think Dinosaur is the better of the two, but only by a slight margin. I would never pass up an opportunity to visit Sticky Lips. Despite the restaurant's Northern location, this is real BBQ and... More

I'm not an expert on ribs, but I will disagree with those who complain about the quality. I've always enjoyed the ribs here, and as far as the sauce goes, Sticky Lips gives you a choice of about 5-6 different tastes to slather on your ribs, depending on your choice from sweet to savory and mild to hot. I was... More

I have dined at this restaurant a few times, but never reviewed it. The service is not decent, the wait staff is slow too. The bbq ribs, are not as good as Dinosaur or any other rib place in Rochester. Save yourself some money, don't bother dining here.

Ribs are always great. Good dry rub, and very meaty. Pulled pork is the only let down lately. Last two times I have been there its been very fatty. My girlfriend mentioned similar to me. I agree with another reviewer on the little paper dishes for the sides. They get all wet on the bottom....please go back to just putting... More

BBQ is a passion. I've tried all the places in town, and make a point to search out smoke houses when traveling. I prefer dry rubs. The true test of Barbeque is if a place can produce a quality hunk of meat without smothering it in sauce. I've found that sauces can hide a lot of sins & you can... More

Food was not bad just not outstanding, the ribs were great, the chick was great however sides were bland and served in paper containers... Not sure why they have nice plates. If the cooks can't control serving size they might want to management might want to re-think who they have in the kitchen. Out server was really friendly and nice.

Best Chicken BBQ I have ever had! Must try when in Rochester! They have two place. Culver Road is the original place and Jefferson Road is the new place. Jefferson Road has the better atmosphere and live music. Culver Road has the better food.
