It was late New Years eve afternoon and we were planning on the East Ave Back Nine Grill but it was closing in less that an hour and we did not want to delay the staff from getting on with their celebrations. We meandered here and there towards home and ended up at Sticky Lips BBQ Pit. The food and... More

We had dinner here with friends and had a really great time. Service was excellent and everyone enjoyed their food very much. The atmosphere is great, the decor is awesome and our server was the icing on the cake!!

This location is entirely inconsistent when it comes to service and food quality. It is a shame to say it, but the Henrietta location is far better, even though it lack the feel of the original.

This restaurant came highly recommended but if I were to revisit this area I think I would take a pass. The BBQ could have been hotter (in temperature), some portions were not heated enough. It was tasty but not the best I've ever had in the area of the country.

Food was decent overall. Wings were excellent. I got the rib sandwich and it was average. I would go back, but wouldn't make it a priority.

Food is good. Prices are mid tier. Quantity varies I.e. Soup is tiny but sandwiches and fries are plentiful. Personally the options offer too much starch and not enough meat... Service is second tier. They do not split the bill for groups, which I find odd and a problem most of the time, as I don't carry cash. Therefore, I... More

I met a friend here for lunch last week...it's the same old reliable BBQ they serve up every day in this established BBQ haven in the city. I ordered the "Latino Plate,"which is BBQ Chicken (but the meat is a choice you get), served in BBQ sauce over rice with beans, carrots, and other spiced veggies, along with a piece... More

Food was good if you eat like a linebacker. But dishonesty is not cool. Charged everyone for more drinks than they ordered. Fraudulent. Keep your head up at this place.

I prefer Sticky Lips to Dinosaur BBQ all day. Great for almost anything you order. The Cherry-Bomb sauce is my favorite. My go-to is the Mae West with pulled pork, mac n cheese & the chorizo cheddar grits. But anytime I stray away from my 'usual' I'm never disappointed!

Actually I prefer Sticky Lips to the other more famous BBQ joint in town. I also rarely have to wait more than 2 minutes for a table. Please try the chorizo grits as one of your side dishes. It is so good you will thank me.
