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.

“So good we went there twice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We were staying opposite at the Holiday Inn, and this restaurant was recommended to us by our tour guide.
. The servers engaged in conversation with us & made us feel most welcome. There was a pleasant atmosphere.
My husband had ribs there (twice) and enjoyed trying all the different sauces to accompany them. I had a salad which was lovely & fresh.
Provided the tables are kept fresh & clean, I can't fault this restaurant for an informal dinner.

“Excellent barbie fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Popped over the road from our hotel for the evening meal. Good, honest barbecue fare - I had the pulled pork & my wife had the chicken wings. superb sweet potato fries! The only complaint was that it was cold inside - coming inside from 90 degree heat to something resembling a refrigerator was a shock to the system. Otherwise - I know it's 'only' a chain restaurant, but nothing could be faulted at all. Excellent value.

“good food in a friendly atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Ate dinner here while on vacation in Charleston, SC. We were seated in the bar area and were waited on by Mike. He was an older guy and was a really good waiter. He was able to offer us some suggestions on the menu, which was appreciated. Believe it or not, I had a vegetable plate in a BBQ restaurant! It was very good too -- I had steamed mixed vegetables, a baked potato, green beans and fried corn on the cob (sounds funky, but it is quite good and not at all greasy). My husband had pulled pork, upon which he delightfully tried every sauce on the table! We had a coupon for a free peach cobbler for dessert. It was served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice crea -- quite good too! After dinner, we struck up a conversation with the manager -- she was so nice and seemed very interested in us. She was very happy that we had enjoyed our dinner and our waiter and also that we were having a great vacation. She very kindly gave us a box of the BBQ sauces as a gesture of kindness!!! I am so sorry that I can't remember her name, but she really made our day. Between her and our waiter Mike, we had a very pleasant dinner indeed!

“Good Choice of BBQ Sauces”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We ate here because it was right next to the hotel we stayed at. It seems like an average "chain" BBQ joint, maybe a slight better than most. I really like that you have the chose of 5 different types of BBQ sauce here. So I had the half chicken and tried to figure out which sauce I liked the most (which was Tennessee Whiskey sauce). But everything else about this place was average, nothing extraordinary. I like that we saw a couple sitting on the porch with their dog eating dinner. It is nice that they allow dogs to join their masters to eat on the patio porch. The price was reasonable, maybe slightly high for the quality.
