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.

I've been yearning for fall off the bone, delectable pork BBQ ribs! My search ended when my pal from Atlanta said, "I have the place for you!" The fried okra, collard green and sweet potato casserole sides were perfect! Service was great, atmosphere casual and clean. Can't wait to return!

It's hard to believe I'm writing about the same place as these other reviewers. There were two of us meeting for a relaxed business discussion. We both ordered BBQ dishes, mine was the pulled pork sandwich and it was very good, moist and tasty. My order was wrong as others have mentioned: I received fries instead of slaw, but they... More

But we were only told "sorry" . The server made a mistake, I understand but no manager came to the table nor... More

The waitress was very nice but not attentive with the timing of our food. Our food took more than an hour to come out because the "computers messed up." Our order was also not accurate. There was also a hair in one of the bowls of vegetables and as far as we know a manager was not present so nothing... More

Very good ribs and fixings.the service was fast and the food was good. 2 of us shared the ribs for 2 platter and it was more than enough food. The wait staff was very efficient. Food came faster than expected and our drinks were kept full. I was very satisfied and the price is quite affordable.

First went there 10 years ago after a whitewater trip, nearby. Remembered how good the food was then. They were running a $20 Octoberfest with 1 appetizer and 2 entrees for $20. The selection was limited, but we found something good. Ashley was our waitress, and she understood the balance of serving the customer and letting the customer have their... More

Good food, nice servers, and very kid friendly. Our favorites were the wings and hush puppies, but the baked beans and barbecue also were good.
