Took my son here for ribs. He complained that the ribs were dry and had to douse them in sauce to give them flavor. I had the summertime salad with apples that were soft and old and had spots cut out of them. I asked for oil and vinegar and they didn't have any. Other than that, salad was OK.... More

I ate dinner here on May 21, 2014. I was alone so I sat at the bar. Lisa was my server and she was very friendly and conversational. I had the ribs/pork combo with bean and sweet potato fries. Everything was very good. I tried all of the sauces with my pork and they were all good. I'd suggest this... More

Nice beer selection on tap. We came for BBQ, and it was really nothing special. My plate had a lot of fat on it. There are better places to get BBQ down the road at Dickey's or Elwood's. Sorry but I don't think we'll be back.

Somewhat disappointed. I loved eating at Sticky Fingers in Greenville, SC. Good but not great BBQ at this location. I was there on a very slow night and the service was below average. The waitress didn't know the menu that well and every task she performed seemed to take forever and there was almost no other customers in the restaurant.

Went to honor a coworker before he went on an extended leave. Ordered ribs, full rack and received them in a correct amount of time. However for the first time ever, the membrane on the rear of the rack was left in place! Never have seen that. They were ok in taste & texture. I was surprised,mas they were NOT... More

Very disappointing. They only thing they have going is ok service. We ordered a rib platter for two. What little meat we had was so dry it was basically pork jerky. There was a layer of what I'm hoping was skin on the bottom that I've never seen on ribs before..... I basically ate it solely because I hadn't eaten... More

Obviously this is the type of place you visit for the name, but it just wasn't anything special. I had the beef brisket plate, which wasn't memorable. In charlotte, there are plenty of better places to get good barbeque, and I'd probably pass on Sticky Fingers in the future.

I like me some Bar B Que and I always look for the small mom and pop joints. I try not to go to many chain resturants. But I have to say Sticky Fingers was Very Good and the prices were also Very good. I will tell others that I do like me some Sticky Fingers
