Tin Rooster

Reopening Fri, February 10

Saddle up to some of the best barbecue and live country music in New York

Tin Rooster is one of Central New York’s biggest and best country bars, with live music and entertainment, dancing and events throughout the year. Themed after a larger-than-life barn, you can even rent Tin Rooster for private parties, barn weddings, corporate events and more. Tin Rooster is also home to some of the best barbeque in New York. Mention that word to anyone who knows their beef and you’re likely to find yourself in a spirited debate over which town owns the title of the best ribs, brisket and pulled pork on the planet. Here at Tin Rooster, our pitmasters have gone to school on the best of all of them and brought back some secrets (and a few smokers) behind that mouth-watering, slow-smoked goodness that defines all-American, world-class barbeque.

Meats, sauces and spices that are a cut above the rest

At Tin Rooster, our secret recipe for our barbeque rub is made up of 24 ingredients, with spices we harvest, roast, toast or smoke ourselves whenever possible. We also make our own mustard, pickles and BBQ sauce in-house. In our three world-class smokers, we use the traditional hickory and oak to bring out the flavor of meats cooked low and slow to infuse them with flavor. Because when you’re as passionate about something like our pitmasters and chefs are about great barbeque, you go to great lengths to do things right.


Dinner Menu

There’s a saying among pitmasters that “you can’t rush a rib.” That’s because with barbeque, beef and pork cooked low and slow over indirect heat for longer periods, from 6-7 hours for fall-off-the-bone ribs and 9-12 hours for tender brisket. The wait is worth it, with flavors from natural hardwoods and our signature rubs and spices bringing out a beautiful depth of flavor.

That same amount of care goes into our scratch-made appetizers and sides, with our own homemade mustard for our potato salad, fried pickle chips from pickles we make in-house, some wickedly wonderful Deviled eggs with house-smoked bacon and more. You’ll also find a 12-oz. New York Strip Pitmaster Steak, a 28-oz T-Bone Steak, fresh fish, sandwiches and southwest style tacos.
