My co-workers took me here during a trip to Rochester. They have great drinks and it was a fun place to have dinner and hang out with the team.

Best chicken BBQ I have ever had. Hands down. Service was slow for a down time of the day (3:15 on a Monday) but polite.

It's hopping even on a Saturday night. A short walk to GEVA and the War Memorial there is frequently a long line. Loud all the time. Smells great. Tasty and large portions - you won't walk away hungry.
