Having patronized several different Sticky Fingers restaurants in the south (especially the one in Charleston near the Battery), and not having been impressed, I was hesitant on going here. Considering it was a busy Saturday evening, the 30 minute wait wasn't bad. Cody, waiter, offered us a sample of ribs to see if we wanted the "dry rub". I thought... More

Great place while walking through downtown, had awesome brisket, and the sides were very good, too! Everything was hot, and fresh.

As a last minute plan, I stopped in on a Saturday morning and asked if it was possible to plan a birthday dinner. We had 22 kids and 15 adults. The manager was more than helpful in setting it up. Arrived for a 5:00pm dinner. We had one server, Candy, and she was impeccable. We were done in less than... More

My family got the sampler of wings, ribs, and pulled pork to go. We sat at NoMa Square to eat it. The food was delicious, and we had leftovers to take with us as well.

Awesome BBQ! Had BBQ all over US and their ribs are spectacular! Staff was even better. Had Bow for a bartender/server and had such a great experience with him, and all of the staff, that I went back later just to have drinks and enjoy their hospitality. If your in Greenville, GO THERE!

We have visited a couple times and ts always been ok. The quality of the entrées are inconsistent. One trip the ribs are good, the next they're tough. The service is always on the slow side and I've never been when it was busy. We had the fried pickles this time. The batter was tasty. I had the pulled pork,... More

It was my first time visiting this restaurant chain so that entitled me to a few free sample ribs before I ordered my meal. I stuck with the standard rib and their stand sauce which were very good. What I didn't appreciate though is the constant interruptions by the staff. There were no less than 3 people checking on how... More

The barbecue is pretty good there. We had fried pickles (always a winner), a brisket sandwich, and ribs. Everything was really good. I really like that you don't have to ask for extra sauce. They have 5 or 6 different ones right on the table. I appreciated the convenience of being able to taste them before I ordered. It made... More

We stopped off for lunch and ordered the 4 Rib Sampler. Each was delicious with the meat cooked just right. The staff was very helpful and attentive. Did I say the ribs were delicious.

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.
