We ordered Limp Lizard via Door Dash. We heard so many great things about the restaurant, but we were completely disappointed by what arrived. Sandwiches were soggy and tasteless. French fries were limp, cold and soggy. Greens were so bland and tasteless I couldn't eat...them. The only thing that redeemed the order slightly was the firey hot chili but other than that, it basically all went into the garbage. A waste of $36!More

After a trip to the zoo. Umbrella dining, cheerful wait staff. About 20 mins. To get served. Food was good: brisket sand, bbq chicken, carolina pulled pork sandwiches...2 doggie bags to go! Brisket sandwich was thick cut and very tender. Enjoyed the red gold ketchup...in my fries! $80 included 4 beers..More

While traveling through Syracuse I ordered dinner from Limp Lizard. I tried the Nashville Chicken Sandwich with Cole Slaw and Jalapeno Cornbread. The food was good and hot and I enjoyed every last morsel of it. Try it for yourself.

Delicious food from a local barbeque joint. Comfortable temp inside on a cold January day. Smoking hot food too. Wide ranging menu selection with fair pricing. Barque platters from $10 - $15. Extensive tap beer list with a variety of sales of craft beer. For...the sports enthusiast, numerous TV's for viewing a variety of sporting events, even though it's not what one would classify as a sports bar; it truly is a barbeque joint with added features.More

Can't say enough good things about Limp Lizard. The atmosphere is fun and casual, the staff is so friendly and helpful, and the food is always consistently delicious. Everything I have tried has been amazing so I can't recommend just one thing. They do specials...on chicken wings during games, I believe you can get an order of wings for around $6 on game days and they are some of my favorite wings in Syracuse! Our most recent meal there I got the crispy chicken club sandwich and it was the best fried chicken sandwich I ever had! Bigger than my head and around $10 - you can't beat it. Limp Lizard is the best!More

We thought the name was cool and the feed back was good so we stopped for dinner. Maybe it was just what we ordered. Not sure. Being from the south I’m used to really good BBQ. It wasn’t bad. I would try it again. I...would not get the burnt ends again they were not good.More

This is a local owned BBQ restaurant. They smoke their brisket and pork overnight every single night! The food is a solid 4 star and the service has come a long way. Give this place a try over any other BBQ joint in the Syracuse...area!More
