Oh what a wonderful time! Drinks are amazing, so much variety, the Cajun food! Fantastic! Even Louisana would be proud! For a chain restaurant you will be pleasantly surprised to have your tastebuds rocked by their food! If you don't like spicy don't bother going! Atmosphere, fun and exciting, waitress staff, wonderful and attentive! A must stop for couples, friends... More

The Food at Sticky Fingers is delicious. The portions are also generous. It is unusual to have good vegetables at a Barbecue restaurant, but the veggies at Sticky Fingers are good.

Went for a late lunch on a Sunday and discovered they offer a buffet on Sundays until 3 pm. You can have pulled pork, chicken, baked beans, coleslaw, banana pudding, and cobbler for $9.99 per person, which is a pretty good deal. However, I came for their ribs and was very happy with that choice. A half slab should to... More

Well, it's not Sonnys. Go across the street for better pulled pork. I had the sandwich which was a little dry. Other people liked what they had, they are crazy.

We had a great meal at Sticky Fingers. The service was fast and friendly and the food was very good. We tried the fried pickles, the onion ring loaf and the ribs. Everything was cooked well and tasty. It was a nice evening out!

We both had ribs, which were much better than last year. I prefer baby backs, but they serve St. Louis. We got them with Memphis dry rub and added the Memphis BBQ sauce at the table. The baked beans were excellent, as were the seasoned fries.

I grew up eating NC eastern BBQ but cut my rib teeth on Memphis dry rubbed ribs (think Rendezvous). I've been to 3 locations of Sticky Fingers and I've been neither wowed nor displeased with any of them. All in all to me the best BBQ places are the ones that look a little sketchy from the outside but sure... More

We ordered the rib sampler for two and it was fantastic. The sides are very small servings. We had the best waiter that we have had in years as he was friendly, attentive and just fantastic at his job. We were in there late on a Friday night on Oct. 14th.

Description
The first location, opened in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina in 1992, remains the flagship store for Sticky Fingers. That's where the five barbecue sauces - Memphis Original, Carolina Classic, Tennessee Whiskey, Carolina Sweet and Habanero Hot - came to life. The sweet smell of hickory wood permeates through each restaurant as all of the smoked meats are still slow cooked on-site in barbecue pits and watched closely by our resident pit masters. It is that continued commitment to tradition and authenticity that makes our restaurants and signature barbecue sauces so popular. Recognized for serving the best hickory-smoked Memphis-style barbecue and ribs in the Southeast and creating award-winning barbecue sauce sold in 5,000 retail locations across the country, Sticky Fingers Smokehouses celebrated their 20th Anniversary in 2013. To this day, the restaurants remain true to the original founders' ideals of great customer service, reasonable prices and having a passion for 'fall-off-the-bone delicious' ribs, pulled pork barbecue and chicken. Memphis-style Barbecue is cooked at a low-temperature, and with a slow-smoked dry (without any sauce) process that enhances the natural flavor of the meat. Since the pork is smoked without sauce the high quality of the meat is the most important ingredient. The meat is cooked in a smoker and although thoroughly cooked, is pink in color. It is tenderly hand-pulled (not chopped). Other popular styles of Barbecue rely on a sauce to flavor the meat. Most "Carolina-style" Barbecue is cooked on a grill (not a smoker) or boiled in a vinegar-based sauce and chopped with a knife. At Sticky Fingers you will enjoy a casual dining environment with family, friends, and kids while getting sticky and having fun, or hang out at our fully stocked bar with signature cocktails and a wide selection of beer and wine while watching the big game on one of the many widescreen TV's. Get Sticky. Have Fun! Headquartered in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Sticky Fingers is a unique barbecue smokehouse concept with 16 locations in the Carolinas, Tennessee, Georgia and Florida. Sticky Fingers specializes in high quality barbecue and comfort food and offers five signature barbecue sauces - Memphis Original, Carolina Classic, Tennessee Whiskey, Carolina Sweet and Habanero Hot. In addition to its core restaurant business, the company has generated successful catering, online mail order and retail barbecue sauce businesses. Sticky Fingers offers guests monthly offers and updates through its StickEClub. To-Go: Our complete dine-in menu is available To-Go and we have added Family-Style options for meats and sides in larger containers. In addition we offer value priced "Express Meals" To-Go. Express Meals are sized just right for families and include a pint of homemade cole salw, BBQ Baked Beans and a bottle of Sticky Fingers Sauce.
