I have heard people say how wonderful it is here so we finally tried it. I will not be going back. The atmosphere was awful (froze to death) I couldn't even eat my meal that was not good anyway. The service was horrible also. Not recommended by me

We have been to both locations many times. It is one of our "go to" places when we have visitors from out of town. Always great food (love the dry rub ribs, pulled pork, and the cherry bomb sauce, but never been disappointed with any choices), always great service. Awesome tap collection at the Juke Joint. Great selection of bottles... More

We have made two trips to Rochester in the last 60 days to visit our son at college. We checked out Dino BBQ and enjoyed the food and atmosphere. BBQ was good, not great. Service was good, not great. Wait for a table mid week at 9pm was long. Portions were good, not great, and price was high. We thought... More

I know there's a huge debate on this, but I prefer Sticky Lips over ... you know who! The fried green tomato sandwich on jalapeño sourdough bread is a must try. Also, the cornbread is my husband's favorite!

Always like to go to the original location Food was very good as usual - new items on the menu. The Chicken Tenders are huge! I see they now have a special lunch menu with $1 soda.

Such a wonderful staff, who made me feel welcomed from the time I put the car in park! The servers were having fun, hospitable, and patient! I liked the menu options and the taste was stupendous! I recommend the ribs, sweet potato fries, and corn bread!

I visited Sticky Lips at the suggestion of my lunch companion and it was definitely a good idea. The server was prompt and attentive. The food very good, well prepared and well presented. When I am back in the area it will be high on my list for another meal.

As the seasons change, and the weather begins to change from summer to Autumn, my cravings also change. It's like clockwork really. With the cool Autumn weather, shorter days and football season upon us, I naturally start to crave chicken wings and heavier, darker beers. It was around 1:30, and I felt the rumble of my belly, telling me it... More

After we couldn't find parking at a different BBQ spot, a local recommended Sticky Lips. No problems with parking The smoking of the meet was well done. The World War II type decor (magazine pictures and other memorabilia) set the theme. The food was excellent - both my spouse and I had the brisket with dry rub. The chorizo cheddar... More
