“Not all that”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Stopped here for dinner one night because we couldn't decide. Seemed decent, but in the end we really wish we had gone somewhere else! And for the amount of money we paid I felt we could have ate at a fine dining establishment. It certainly was not worth the money. The waiter was nice and tried to do some jokes, but service was slow, especially with drinks. A couple of us got refills on our sodas by the time we were done eating and no longer wanted a refill. We had to ask for silverware. The food however came rather quickly which was odd. One had the chicken finger basket, one had a hamburger (kinda hard to screw those up) and the other two had the half rib and chicken wings. Not a whole lot of flavor and the ribs were extremely fatty. I've had much better BBQ. We also ordered an appetizer (spinach dip with chips) and again....I've had better at Applebees. Disappointing....next time we will try somewhere else.

“So-So Food and mediocre service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

The food order was fast enough, but the silverware didn't come until we were finished. We had to scrounge for our own forks and knife! The waiter brought them just as we were finishing up. Drink delivery was also painfully slow.

I love the BBQ sauce, the ribs are amazing, live dj, fast service, wi-fi. Good atmosphere. Amounts are large. What else can I say?

“Good Service, Only Average Food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

We spent a beautiful afternoon shopping in downtown Greenville and stopped by Sticky Fingers for lunch. While the service was good, the food was only average. My husband had the half rack of ribs and they were tough. The ribs actually tasted like they were left over from the previous evening. I had the beef and blue salad which, if the meat had been good, would have been fantastic. Servings were large but, if the main attraction, i.e. ribs and brisket, were dried out and tough, it didn't really matter. We were very disappointed as we had eaten there before and had good food.

“Think Applebee's of BBQ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

northerner says he’s going to take you to a BBQ restaurant that’s the first clue that you’re getting BBQ one step above Applebee’s. The service here was great and there were plenty of sauces on the table to help kill the taste of my pulled pork sandwich. If you want local BBQ I suggest you look at Mac’s Speed Shop which is up Main on the other side of the Falls or Smoke on the Water.
