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.

What a great atmosphere here in Chattanooga. The food was great, but the service was awesome. I showed up late, sat with a group, and my food was brought very quickly so that I would not have to watch everybody eat.

We stopped here on our way from ATL to Dollywood for a mid afternoon meal. We got there about 4pm and were seated right away and our waitress "Grace" was right there to take our order. We had never been to a Sticky Fingers restaurant so we had some questions. Grace was quick to answer all our menu questions and... More

My nephew and I went to Sticky Fingers Saturday, January 17th for lunch. Unfortunately, there was a cheerleading competition in town that weekend so the restaurant was crowded. It took a very long time for the server to get our order after we had been seated. My nephew order the Tennessee Whiskey ribs and I ordered the Memphis dry ribs.... More

Had the bbq sliders platter, one each of pulled pork, brisket, & chicken. A nice amount of seasoned fries, $8.99. 5 bbq sauces at each table. Overall a friendly staff, large menu, and good food served in a decent time (packed on a Saturday night) and I would definitely recommend this place.

We came in near the end of the night and our experience was directly related to that. As a successful restraint, you need to be "on" during your ENTIRE shift. The sauces were spot on and I highly recommend to chicken wings. I am a self professed smoker of meats and know my way around a smoker but frankly, I... More
