Anyhow, now that the smoking ban is in affect I've been able to enjoy eating at Beale Street without everything smelling like cigarette smoke. I’ve had better Cajun elsewhere, but their food is always fresh and tasty. I love the Mud Bugs and get them most every visit. —ZedOmega

2006-12-14 13:55:02   The last time I went there the food was very good but there was an extremely untalented jazz combo playing and the trumpet player only knew 2 styles, “LOUD” and “off”. It was too full to sit in the dining room so I had to endure ear splittingly loud (and bad) music in the bar during dinner. (This is not a complaint about jazz, I’m a big fan.) —ZedOmega

2007-02-07 12:58:27   Great food, good service, entertainment is hit & miss, but the overall experience is very good. —JackPorcello

2007-03-24 15:44:24   In my opinion THE place to go in Rochester for pulled pork. Beats Dinosaur hands down. —IaAdams

2007-03-30 12:52:18   Went for lunch, the blackened chicken is great, and I've had the pulled pork sandwich, which is fine but I disagree, Dinosaur's pulled pork is better. —TravisOwens

2007-04-01 16:47:19   Great brisket! Tonight I split one of the "concerts" (dinner for two) with my dining companion, and we got a huge meal: half a chicken, beef brisket, pulled pork, a combo of fish, ribs, two sides, and cornbread (all for $30). Great deal. —RachelBlumenthal

2007-04-09 13:10:53   We just had our 5th dinner at the Beale Street Restaurant on Empire Blvd. Every meal has been great. This is a restaurant that we always recommend to friends. —MichaelHarold

2007-06-26 23:01:43   Love their cajun fried chicken—especially with the pepper cream sauce. Soooo yummy! —CatherineConnolly

2007-07-09 00:28:08   finally got to the one in webster, had been meaning to for weeks. the cornbread is fucking fantastic. a friend of mine's father owns these joints and he's an amazing cook. the cornbread is everything it's cracked up to be, and the pulled pork is delicious too! —CalebKelsey

2007-07-14 08:16:28   Best chicken fingers I've ever had. Huge portions on some of their dishes, and great flavors. Skip Dinosaur and go here. —CharlieBeltram

2007-10-13 17:56:17   Great food! Try the Mud Bugs and the Corn Bread! Best BBQ in Rochester!!! —MikeDixon

2007-11-10 14:03:20   Delicious food! I came here for the first time after being disappointed by the two hour wait at Dinosaurs. The BBQ is on par with Dinosaurs and the atmosphere is much quieter, with live blues and jazz. —CatMagro

2007-11-10 18:39:54   Ate at Empire location in Nov. 07. The server was a hoot! The brisket was the best I've ever tasted, so tender, not dried out at all. The ribs and chicken were okay. Pulled pork was also average. People who got the chili and Guiness Stew were very impressed. And the rice in the red beans in rice was awesome. —AmyLa
