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.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

My husband loves this place and we go here anytime we are near Charleston/Mt. Pleasant. The food is always great and so is the service. I'm not much of a meat/rib eater but they have a broccoli and cheese baked potato which is awesome! It is huge and is easily a meal for one person.

“Great price with a lot of food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

I lived in the inn right next to it and the front desk gave me some coupons of sticky fingers so I decided to try. I'm not a really meat lover and for most of the time im a vegetarian. But the BBQ and rib did taste good. I ordered a platter and it was way too much for me. I also got a free chocolate lava cake with the coupon.

“Good Food, Many Different Sauces”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

I like barbecue and was not disappointed with the food here. Went out with another couple and we all planned on getting different items so we could share, that did not happen cause everybody loved their choice.

The combo plates are great, but the sides were really small which included some of the best fries I have had in a long time. I liked the option of trying numerous different type of sauces, the habanero was my favorite.

Staff were friendly and helpful and after watching the parade of boats it was nice to be inside and sitting down. Will definitely visit this small regional chain again!
