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.

Good BBQ, small portion for price

Sticky Fingers has good BBQ, but the portion for my order was small compared to price paid. I got the beef brisket which included 2 sides and the slices were 12" long but only 3 slices. My wife got the pork bun with 2 sides which was enough for her. Overall, good place to eat, but want more bang... read more

One of the worst dining experiences we have ever had. We should have left after seeing how dirty the place was. The whole place just felt unclean but the topper was all the food on the floor, after my husband pointed it out to the waitress she said he last table had kids and just went on to taking our...

Great place for BBQ ribs and chicken. The food platter was huge and delicious. One must try the fried pickles as they are very tasty. The bread pudding is one of the best I have had and highly recommend it. The atmosphere is pleasant and warm and the staff are fantastic. Our waiter John was very friendly and very respectful....

Our group of 14 friends stopped at Sticky Fingers recently while on the drive to Charleston. We had made this stop just two years ago with our group. We weren't disappointed. Lynn and I both had Pulled Pork sandwiches. Mine had cold slaw on top. We had the Memphis Dry Rub treatment which was moist and delicious. Sticky Fingers offers... More

Yummy ribs and love their sauces. Service is always good. You need to have plenty of napkins on hand, as the food lives up to the name "Sticky Fingers".

This spot never fails with a variety of delicious ribs among other items on the menu. I alway get the Memphis dry rub and my husband usually get the rib sampler for 1. With the sampler you get to decide if you want wet, hot, dry rub or sweet. The restaurant was nice and clean and the service was good.... More
