Returning to Rochester’s Barbecue and Grill for this the third time, we need not look for the charm. Loved it the first two visits and this visit was no different. Starting with the friendly! Nice greeting on arrival, and staff was friendly throughout the meal.
Ordering ribs (pork) and barbecued chicken platter, more ribs 🙂 and a new item that was a special crab cake(s), we had two. Starting with the Crab Cakes, they are very big and one would have been plenty. This is all-in crab meat with little to no filler. Great flavor. A perfect crab cake.
Ribs were as fantastic as the first visits. Great flavor, fall off the bone. BBQ Chicken, more of the same fantastic bbq flavor, another winner. Sides, black-eyed peas, corn bread, hush puppies, mac and cheese and macaroni salad. All expertly made and delicious. The black-eyed peas need a bit more praise; fantastic flavors leaning toward a baked bean flavor but not quite there with the sweetness and still on firm side. Highly recommend.
Another great visit at a fabulous restaurant. Are we bias? Only to great food!
