Description: 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.

We were welcomed by the friendly staff into Sticky Fingers. My wife had the BBQ plate with cole slaw and beans. I had the dry-rub ribs. Both of us were pleased. The owner is from Memphis and it shows in his style. The only down side was that the air conditioning was broken that day, so it was very hot.... More

We have eaten in sticky fingers many times over the past 20 or so years and recently went again with friends for supper. I had not tried Baby Backs recently so decided to share a full rack. The ribs were way overcooked and thus very dry. The large end was okay and the smaller end indelible. My wife sent it... More

Walking distance from our hotel. Decent food and service for a reasonable price. I'd go back and do recommend it.

This was a really good BBQ. The pulled pork was smoky , slaw tasty, and mac and cheese real well prepared. we are BBQ fans and as we travel around the country enjoy trying the local BBQ. We loved the Sticky Finger name. Service was quick. Highly recommend this BBQ restaurant.

We were tired from our walking, so ordered our meal as take-out. We were very disappointed in the meal and the size of the portions. Do not order the Express meal...it should be called the mini meal. The pulled pork was in a Styrofoam cup which was not filled ...less than 2 cups. The "free sides" which came with the... More

I had the combo platter. Chopped pork was good, sausage great. But the brisket had no smoke flavor. No smoke ring. It was like it was cooked in the oven then steamed. I asked if they had a vinegar sauce. Nope. I asked for some vinegar to mix with one of the other sauces. They could not find any. I... More

Great ribs. Wife loved her brisket sandwich. Might be a tad expensive, but was still really good. Try the rib sampler. That was pretty neat.

Typical bar atmosphere. I had a burger and fries. Food was good, but took a long time to arrive. Good selection of sauces at the table, with more available for purchase. Our waiter left pitchers of lemonade at our table for us to pour our own refills, which I thought was a bit strange. Otherwise, a very good experience, and... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this chain restaurant. The service was great and the food was fantastic! We had the peach moonshine drinks and brisket tacos - very good! The prices are very reasonable! And don't forget to take some of that sauce home!
