Very good local BBQ place

Sticky Lips is a good place to eat out with family and or friends. Their food is cooked right and my favorite sauce is their cherry bomb sauce (which is popular with a lot people). You get what you pay for when you go there and the portions are good sized too. I have only been to the one on... read more

Went with my son for a Sunday evening meal. Seated right away and service was very good, but our food did not live up to the hype. I had the fried green tomato BLT. The thick breading on the tomatoes overwhelmed the taste of anything else on the sandwich. Son had the pulled pork and loaded fries. Both were acceptable,... More

Three of us had lunch at the original Sticky Lips on Tuesday. The service was friendly and very efficient. We all ordered very different combo played and we're all extremely pleased with the quality and quantity of the good. The brisket was superb!

My husband insists on going to sticky lips for his birthday every year. I always dread it, because it is an expensive meal for our family. The food is okay, but certainly not worth it! They usually have long wait times, too. The guys always get the ribs (and usually remark that they remember them tasting better). My daughter and... More

The staff at Sticky Lips on Culver Rd is friendly, engaging and knowledgeable. The atmosphere is kitsch classic Americana, and very comfortable. The BBQ isn't very good, though. I sampled all the BBQ meat they had, opting for the dry rub with sauce on the side. I'm not a real fan of sauce because it tends to mask everything and... More

Sticky lips has a long history in Rochester. It is one of my favorite places for barbecue. The services quick the food is great the prices are reasonable and the portions are generous. They also had my favorite barbecue sauce cherry bomb. Sexy lips gets two thumbs up also serving vegetarian options so no one is excluded.

BBQ portions are just right and service is fast. We go here a lot with our kids and everyone finds something they like. Fried green tomatoes are a must.
