My husband and I were going to choose Dinosaur BBQ to cater our wedding, but went there to sample the food and were very unimpressed. It was super crowded and loud, everyone is packed in like sardines, and the food wasn't even particularly good. So, we decided to give Limp Lizard a try instead and were immediately sold! At our...

I don't know why American's are now in love with dried out meat but it seems rampant. I gave this restaurant 3 separate tries and every time the ribs were dried out. My guest had a brisket sandwich in a giant slices, it was either dried out or sliced wrong since my own falls apart. If you like dried out... More

Did't know what to expect. Have always gone to the "other Barbecue" in Syracuse. Made a point to go on a beautiful sunny day. It was absolutely delightful. Walked right in and seated ourselves in the enclosed patio seating (picnic table). The drink menu was pretty good for beer, but didn't offer sangria. The appetizers looked really good, too.

This is the original location of the 3. Liverpool is as good as Syracuse for food, service, atmosphere, and good times. We always go back and are never disappointed.

One of our most preferred places to eat out. Although it can get crowded at times, and loud. Its a place where friends like to meet. They have a bar, people are standing around drinking and listening to music most evenings. People have always been well behaved and pleasant each time we've been there. There are countless numbers of places... More

I did not enjoy my evening out at this restaurant. An evening out in this economy is a sacred thing and I think a restaurant should bring something exceptional to the table, this one did not. My husband is the cook in the family and would take one of his homemade burgers or meatloaf any day.

A friend told me to go here for the ribs. I was so disappointed as they were dry and tough. The side dishes were only average, so they didn't really make up for the disappointing ribs.
