Description: The first location, opened in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina in 1992...
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. Catering: We offer 3 levels of catering services for parties from 20 to 4,000! Full Service Catering Don't want to lift a finger? Let our professional catering staff do all the work for you. We will set-up, maintain the buffet line during the designated serving time, and clean up when it's over. We will provide serving tables and linens. Food will be served in metal pans from warmed chafing dishes. Full Service Delivery This option includes everything in the delivery service plus a disposable tablecloth and set-up of disposable aluminum chafing dishes with sternos to keep your food hot. Delivery Service We set it up, you take care of the rest. Our experienced caterer will deliver the food to you in ready-to-serve aluminum pans. All packaging is disposable.

Great to visit since it is the original Sticky Fingers. Menu very limited and warning that they do not serve baby back ribs. Disappointed. Service good.

The service and food were very good. Our waitress, Rachel, was enthusiastic and paid attention to our needs. Sticky Fingers has a tempting menu of BBQ meats. We were pleased with the portion sizes and flavor of the meats we ordered. Their selection of BBQ sauces complimented what we ordered.

Visited with family on recommendation, waiting staff courteous and attentive, table sticky and not very clean, food quite disappointing, small portions and not great quality. Came looking for seafood but not on this menu.

I have been a regular patron for a number of years,but no more. The service is nonchalant, the food edible, not enjoyable. . Lot of young families, as the cost is moderate.

We prearranged for our Girl Scout Troop and families to have dinner here. The room they crammed us in is too dang small. Dirty plates brought out Twice! Even wait staff struggled to get around the room. Food took over an hour to come out. Asked for a replacement napkin twice. Never got it. Wishing we had gone somewhere completely... More

Good food but nothing out of the ordinary. I must be used to being wowed by different beers living in Asheville. The beer list here was pretty weak.

First visit to this restaurant after our visit to Boone Hall Plantation. We were immediately seated as it was a tuesday afternoon and not very busy. BBQ is a difficult thing to review because everyones taste for it varies depending on what kind of BBQ you like. I had the nachos, they were amazing. A few things the other people... More

WOW I did not know this location, only the one downtown without parking. This place has plenty of parking. A friend drove me and I loved the atmosphere, the friendly staff and the cleanliness of the entire place. It was a hot afternoon, way past the lunch crowd so we sat in the bar area in a booth. Great service,... More
