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.

Sticky Fingers has an excellent pulled pork sandwich and salad option. Out of the three of us two ordered the sandwich and I ordered the salad (watching calories). Everyone was very happy with their meals and the service was good. We had to compete with a bus load of children, which raised the volume in the restaurant to nearly needing... More

Some of the best BBQ in town. We eat there often. It is only a few blocks from the Tennessee Aquarium and well worth the visit.

A co-worker suggested we eat at Sticky Fingers while visiting Chattanooga. After spending an afternoon at the aquarium and IMAX theater downtown, we walked over to Sticky Fingers on Broad Street. We were seated quickly and our server promptly took our orders. She was very friendly and attentive during our visit. I thoroughly enjoyed the pulled pork plate with baked... More

Sticky Fingers has always delivered on good tasty food and service at a decent price. Catering is good as well. I really enjoy their ribs for taste and fall-off-the-bone tenderness of the meat. Enjoy, it's pretty much all good, at least it's been for me, both downtown and Hamilton Place.

I had never been to Sticky Fingers but kept hearing great things about it from my coworkers so we decided to visit while we were visiting Chattanooga. I am so glad we did! The food was fresh, tasty, and served in enormous portions. We tried a little bit of everything. I had pulled chicken, and my husband had ribs and... More

We had dinner here and arrived absolutely starving. Our waiter arrived quickly but alas did not take our orders or bring our drinks or food quickly. It took over 40 mins to be served. The sizes are very generous and very tasty. Prices were reasonable. Good barbecue but could do with better service

We visited here while staying in Chattanooga, this was our first time here. The staff were very friendly and great customer service. To have the best of both worlds we went for the pulled pork and pulled chicken. It was out of this world and fantastic!!! Wish I had more room for more food but I was too full up.... More
