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.

Overall was very satisfied with Sticky Fingers. It was our first time in one since they aren't over on the left coast. They let you sample all of their sauces (5 or 6) before you order. Food was excellent and service was good too.

Everything was delicious. Service was great. Restaurant was clean and cool. Our 12 year old devoured his chicken tenders and mac & cheese, then attacked whatever was left on our plates: pulled pork, corn on the cob, chicken.

Excellent variety, large portions and kids eat free on Monday nights! Love the games and puzzles set up to keep the kids busy while you wait on the food.

The ribs are delicious and all varieties are gluten-free! They have an extensive allergen menu and are careful how they prepare your food. Manager and wait staff are always friendly and attentive. My favorite restaurant in the Charleston area!

I got a lunch sampler that consisted of a pulled pork sandwich, ribs, homemade cole slaw, and baked beans. It was plenty of food and everything was very good.

Located close to I-26 and downtown Historic Summerville. Always order the Savannah chips and dip for an appetizer. So delicious. My husband and I usually order the Memphis dry rub ribs that are prepared to perfection. Along with the ribs we get beans, cole slaw and a side salad - all food is fresh and eagerly anticipated.

My husband & I really enjoyed our meals at Sticky Fingers. The waitress was friendly and quick. I love BBQ brisket and theirs was excellent, lean and tasty. The sauces were very good as were the sides. We also had desert -- and left stuffed!

This place is a great choice for BBQ at it's best. I had a full rack of ribs with four different finishes including "Wet" Memphis, Dry Rub Memphis, Sweet Georgia and Kentucky (I think) they were all delicious and the meat was the perfect degree of doneness. I liked the Wet Memphis best. My better half ordered the Beef Brisket... More
