I have been eating at Sticky Fingers almost every week for the last two years and had them cater three events as well and have never had a bad meal. I belong to a club that now meets there once a week for lunch and we are always treated great. The food and service is always first class.

Tried this new place today and enjoyed it. Good BBQ pulled pork and Mac n cheese. Had fried corn for the first time-would have enjoyed it more if they had provided a sharp knife to cut it off the cob since it was so hot.

I grew up eating at Sticky Fingers and had them cater my wedding. I have since moved away, but whenever we are visiting we try to stop in. We came with my in-laws for dinner. Food was delicious, as usual. I was disappointed by one thing. If you ask, you can get cornbread muffins. They used to be soooooo delicious.... More

We've eastern here once. It was okay. I personally didn't care for any of the sauces. The only thing I really liked was the deep fried corn on the cobb. That was delicious. I probably won't go back.

Has always been a favorite choice when I'm in the area. May have caught them on a bad night. Service was slow and not too attentive. We were seated close to the bar with my teenage daughter, even though the dining area was almost completely empty. We got to overhear all the drama going on in the lives of the... More

We were running errands, driving around and looking for a place to eat. We've passed by sticky fingers hundreds of times so we decided to try it. When we walked in you could smell the smoke. We ordered the rib sampler so we could try the different tastes, and they were all good. They also have a variety of sauces... More

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. 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.
