“smokin' good barbeque”
To know the real story behind the success of STICKY LIPS PIT BBQ, it’s necessary to go back to 1982, when Irondequoit native Howard “Howie” Nielsen opened his first restaurant. Having spent time in Chicago, Nielsen learned to love the city’s stuffed pizza. At the young age of 21, Nielsen brought the dish to Rochester, and opened THE PIZZA STATION on June 10th, 1982.In a short four year period, The Pizza Station grew to four locations and 75 employees. However, after a name change to CHESTER CAB PIZZA, there were some problems to overcome. A restaurant fire was particularly devastating, and Nielsen’s early attempts at franchising did not work out well. By the end of the decade, Nielsen was close to going bankrupt.

Sticky lips is the perfect place for lunch time meetings - the restaurant winds between two floors and is a great setting for a chat, a good beer and some amazing pulled pork - I'd even say their pulled pork is better than Dinosaur BBQ which is really saying something. A great BBQ joint with a friendly atmosphere!
