Sticky Fingers Ribhouse has been smokin’ up the BBQ scene in the Southeast for the past 27 years. We’re known for our authentic Memphis-style slow-smoked ribs, no-sauce-needed hickory-smoked wings and mouthwatering barbecue pork & chicken. With classic sides to complement our meats plus a full bar and homemade desserts, you’ll soon understand why we’ve become Legendary. We currently have 11 restaurant locations in the Carolinas, Tennessee and Florida. The sweet smell of hickory wood that welcomes you upon arrival is a sure sign that all our smoked meats are still slow cooked on-site in our barbecue pits. It is that same commitment to tradition and authenticity that makes our restaurants and

The service was a bit slow, but the food was best we ate on our trip to Charleston. We have the 2 meat combo: pulled chicken & smoked wings and pulled pork and smoked wings, everything was excellent! We enjoyed the place and it was...not over crowded it. The staff was friendly.More

Stopped in here because we could smell it from the street. Amazing ribs, tender and not fatty. We had ribs, pulled pork, grilled chicken, Mac n cheese and hush puppies. Everything was delicious. My son said they may have been the best ribs he’s ever...had.More

Great Bbq restaurant on Meeting St. Close to King St shops and the City Market. Fantastic attentive servers. Great menu and delicious food. No wait to be seated. Bathroom could’ve used a good clean though.

Let’s just say Sticky Fingers was Horrible. Ordered the 6pc wing the wings were over cooked very dry. My husband had a sampler with wings and pulled fried corn and sweet potato soufflé. Once again over cooked wings very dry. We did say something they...brought out more wings still old. The were serving Friday night’s food on Sunday. No one apologized. The waiter couldn’t even look us after that. He knew it was wrong. I have been to Sticky fingers in Georgia and Tennessee both were so much better. If this was my first visit I’d never go back. After this experience I really don’t think I’ll visit another Sticky Fingers location.More

My family has loved to eat at Sticky Fingers for years. While many of their locations have closed, we found all the yumminess that we expected at this location. We had both pulled pork and ribs. The collards were EXCELLENT!

I wanted to sample Carolina barbeque and after passing by Sticky Fingers twice, my friend and I decided to eat here after touring the city. I discovered the meat served was Memphis-style and not Carolina, but what the heck. We ordered the Sticky Sampler which...consists of three dry-rubbed ribs, pulled pork, and two drummettes (wings), and a choice of two sides. The ribs were tender and tasted well with the Carolina barbeque sauce, which was my first time trying a mustard-based sauce. The pull pork was also tender and I'm not a fan of pulled pork. The sides I ordered were the baked beans and hush puppies. The beans were good, but the hush puppies tasted like corn fritters. The server was attentive and checked on us periodically during the meal. I would eat here again on another visit to Charleston.More

Thanks so much, Precious89. We're proud of our Memphis roots, but we have created our own little handle here in the Carolinas that we think fits in perfectly. We really appreciate you stopping in and hope to see you again soon!

I had been wanting to go to Sticky Fingers since we arrived in Charleston a few days ago. Finally we went there to enjoy there 11 to 3pm lunch specials. I ordered the 3 meat with two sides lunch. It came with pulled pork, ribs...and wings. My sides were collards and potato salad. The pulled pork was the best of the three meats. The ribs were ok and the wings crispy. Collards were steaming hot and the potato salad tasted good. When I go back I will just order the pulled pork with sides. Really good flavor and meaty with Sticky Fingers home made sauces. All the sauces are good.More

We ordered the Rib plate and the Ribs and Pork sandwich from the lunch menu. Awesome food! Fall off the bone ribs, pulled pork moist and the bun didn't fall apart, sign of a good sandwich! Hush puppies were excellent as was the Mac and...cheese! The only thing lacking was the Cole slaw, so only a 4. Service was also excellent, seated and served quickly! A wonderful experience!More
