Excellent BBQ! Tried all the BBQ flavors on the ribs, excellent! I prefer the Tennessee Whiskey. The fried pickles are always yummy and the wings looked like they were on steroids, perfect for slathering the sauce on! I suggest the Southern Swing Cocktail for dinner,...More

Food was good. Waiter could have been a little more attentive. Best to ask to sit somewhere other than the bar area. Our waiter was also the bartender!

Did not actually eat in their restaurant but we did have them cater to our Navy Reunion for our dinner. Had pork, chicken & brisket with a bunch of sides and all was great. One note of caution, the green beans have some HEAT !...More

You can't give a good rating when the food they bring (onion loaf) is almost burned, the buns were stale and hard, the pulled pork was terribly dry. The burger was just about burned on the outside. French fries came to the table cold with...More

Description
Sticky Fingers Ribhouse has been smokin’ up the BBQ scene in the Southeast for the past 25 years. We’re known for our authentic Memphis-style slow-smoked ribs, no-sauce-needed hickory-smoked wings and mouthwatering barbecue pork & chicken. With classic sides to complement our meats plus a full bar and homemade desserts, you’ll soon understand why we’ve become Legendary. We currently have 12 restaurant locations in the Carolinas, Tennessee and Florida. The sweet smell of hickory wood that welcomes you upon arrival is a sure sign that all our smoked meats are still slow cooked on-site in our barbecue pits. It is that same commitment to tradition and authenticity that makes our restaurants and signature barbecue sauces so popular. Yes, the Sticky Fingers Barbecue Sauces you see in your grocery store … that’s us! Our five award-winning signature sauces – Memphis Original, Carolina Classic, Tennessee Whiskey, Carolina Sweet and Sweet Southern Heat – are served daily in our restaurants. Demand from Sticky Fingers fans led to the development of our retail line of sauces, which are now distributed in over 5,000 grocery stores and specialty shops across the country. If you’re not near us but craving Sticky, our sauces, seasonings and gifts are available on our website for shipment across the United States. Not up for dining-in?
