On opening night, April 22, 2004, the marquee read "I just spent my life savings, please eat my food." After eleven months of renovation, the building at the corner of Culver and Atlantic was transformed. What was once an automobile showroom (and later Carvel's Ice Cream) was now the two story STICKY LIPS PIT BBQ. Remembers Nielsen, "People must have felt sorry for me. We had a line out the door and it hasn't stopped since."
What keeps customers coming back is a simple philosophy: make the best BBQ in town. The decor is handpicked original signs, magazines, photos and antiques from the 1940s and 50s. The walls read like a museum of Rochester and national history from the time period. The girls of the friendly wait staff are the new "Rosie Riveters" of today. Sticky Lips BBQ is truly a Rochester original.
Our staff at Sticky Lips works hard, and we will continue to do our best to keep you coming back again and again.
