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.

We ate there last night. Worst Sticky Fingers ever. Food and restaurant were both nasty! We left most of the food on plates and laughed when asked if we wanted a box.

BBQ is my favorite meal, so we decided to eat here for our 25th anniversary while on vacation. So upsetting to have a bad meal on such a special date. The pulled pork was so watery on my plate that it soaked my very dried out corn muffin. We were there for dinner but the portions were lunch size portions,... More

Don't miss this restaurant in downtown Charleston on meeting street or in Mt. Pleasant, Summerville has one too!!! Food is really, really good. Prices too! The ribs, the wings, the shredded pork and the sauces are the best!

The the signature drink was delicious, the wings were fantastic, the Sampler for 2 was amazing. The side dishes were great, except for the mac and cheese which was a little bland. Our server, Maria, was very knowledgeable about the seasonings. She was very attentive even though working the bar and booths. This was some of the best bar-b-que I've... More

Half rack, dry rub, so you can try all of their BBQ sauces. Doc is the best bartender anywhere. Chicken, pork, etc, it's all good. Best BBQ in SC. I hit it every time I'm in town, which is not enough.

After reading so many great reviews , my husband and I decided to try the amazing ribs. Even though we didn't love the ribs we did find the wings to be amazing. Our waiter ,Ryan was exceptional.

Wife and I had dinner at Stick fingers last Wednesday evening. Arrived at a couple of minutes before 9:00 PM, and was told we had "just beat closing time." We were seated and ordered, and it took about 20 minutes before we were served. In the mean time the employees were cleaning up and getting ready for the next day.... More

If you are in the area there is nothing wrong with Sticky Fingers. The food is reasonable, the prices reasonable, the staff attentive, the décor a typical BBQ type place. There is just nothing memorable either. That's cool if you want a reliable dinner out with minimum fuss. Just don't expect any wow factor.

Probably one of the best rib and barbecue places in the greater Charleston area. We make it a must place to eat whenever we are staying anywhere near Mt. Pleasant. Great ribs, awesome sauces and the smoked chicken wings are the BEST!!
