Tips from locals
Voted the best barbecue in Rochester. This venue also has great blues bands and views of the city!
Barbecue chain serving Southern-style meats & draft brews in a casual setting. Not a big fan of the chain restaurants but if you never been there must go to place in Rochester!!!
The BEST BBQ in town! The best selection of meats & drafts in a retro vibe overlooking the Genesee River. Live music!
This place must be doing something right. They have been around for ever and they get great reviews. We've had several finger-licking family dinners here over the last 20 or so, and would still go back. Parking can be a bit restricted but not a big problem. If you love barbecue, go.

“Probably the oldest Mediterranean restaurant in Rochester. Always great quality and large portions of freshly prepared salads, pasta and Greek specialties. Never a bad meal since I first ate there in 1995. ”

“It's going to sound weird, but this Rochester staple is must have! The "GARBAGE PLATE" isn't appealing by name, but it's amazing once you take a bite! At first you will stumble upon this culinary creation after a late night on the town, when nothing else is open... but then you will start eating it for regular meals like lunch and dinner. What is it?! Standard garbage plates will be served over potatoes and mac salad with your choice of hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hotdogs, chicken fingers, or sausage, all smothered in onions and "hot sauce" which in Rochester is a spicy, ground beef sauce and is good on just about everything. (Try it on eggs!) ”

“Features nightly specials, soups, salads and small plates--all locally sourced. My favorite is the Buffalo Cauliflower. They also offer a large selection of craft brews, artisan wines, locally roasted coffee and desserts from nearby bakeries. Most menu items can be prepared gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan and vegetarian upon request.”
