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 first ate at the original Sticky Fingers in Charleston SC so many years ago that I'd rather not count them up. Since then, we've eaten at a number of other locations. The barbecue is always good, but somehow, it isn't quite like Charleston. Now, it's just barbecue to please everyone, and it does still please, but maybe the novelty... More

We had dinner at the Hamilton Place Sticky Fingers. The food and service were good. We had to wait a little for the service, but the waiter was attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. Good place and worth a return visit.

Trevor is one of the best waiters we have ever had in any restaurant. Food was great too. We had 1 - pulled chicken and 1- ribs plate. Perfect portions for lunch. Food was hot and brought to the table quickly. Next time we are in Chattanooga this restaurant will be on our list.

Picked this place over 5 guys while driving around trying to find a place to eat and man I am glad we did. We traveled as a couple (57 & 61) and came across this place after visiting the Moon Pie General Store across the street. Loved the atmosphere (think Texas Road House) and the food was really good.

This is the first time we ate here while vacationing. All four of us enjoyed our meals....ribs, pulled pork sandwiches, brisket and a salad. Our server, Sarah, was very attentive, personable and accommodating. She was one of our favorite servers we had this week.
