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.

For the most part, the food has been really good. We prefer the location in Henrietta as it has a better atmosphere. Personal favorite is their version of a garbage plate.

The brisket and pulled pork are to die for! Their cornbread with a hint of honey is amazing. The service leaves something to be desired though. My suggestion would be to skip going to the Culver Road one and drive out to Henrietta to the location on Jefferson road. Every time I've been to the Culver Road location it has... More

The restaurant is decorated with vintage Americana and memorabilia throughout. The wait staff is friendly and accommodating and the food is great. Would definitely recommend. There is another Sticky Lips location in Henrietta, NY that is a larger venue that has a performance stage with live music sometimes and it is also highly recommended!

Sticky lips has great food, but the prices are a bit much for the quality and quantity received. Be prepared to wait because the place is always packed. A nice place for families and friends alike.

Went for a friends birthday and this was my first time here. (usually go to Dinosaur BBQ) Wow!!! Was pleasantly surprised!! Had a platter of brisket with mashed potatoes and beans. I chose to slather my brisket with the cherry bomb sauce. Best decision ever!!! I like sweet not spicy and this was perfect!! Even went home with 2 bottles... More

The food was excellent. The service well it was okay she was one of those servers that do a fly-by. Maybe she just didn't have the time but it was not that busy it wasn't great service but it was okay but the food on the other hand was absolutely delicious. This was the Sticky Lips in Henrietta New York.
