Terrific food and service

Ordered the pulled pork and brisket platter with Mac and cheese and sweet potato fries. The meats were tender, juicy and very flavorful. The pork had just the right amount of smokey flavor. The brisket was very very tender and delicious. Sides were very tasty. The cornbread is amazing! Service was... read more

Very good food here. Wait staff was a bit slow, but overall a good place to eat. Brisket Reuben was my favourite.

Everybody was telling me how good this place was, but the whole decor was run down. Maybe that's what the draw is, but it looks like an old McDonalds that was turned into a bbq place. Brisket was a bit on the dry side, but good selection of beers.

Went with a group of 8 on a Friday night. We were seated within an hour. Due to the time of year, no outdoor seating, so the bar area was very crowded. Our waitress was very prompt and nice, drinks came quickly. The food was okay, but a bit bland and dry. There is the "other" BBQ in town, which... More

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...

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. However,... More

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.
