Sticky Fingers Ribhouse has been smokin’ up the BBQ scene in the Southeast for the past 25 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 12 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

We did a trip to Chattanooga for a mini vacation during Father's Day weekend. Our hotel was located downtown near Sticky Fingers so we decided to order carryout. We arrived in time to place our order on Friday night for dinner (called it it at...about 9:15p). Large portions, we had had plenty to share among our family of three (we ordered ribs, pulled pork, smoked sausage and chicken wings). Everything was delicious and hot when we got it back to our room. The young lady who took our order over the phone was courteous, it was ready at the designated pick up time, and everything was correct when my husband arrived. We will certainly be sure to visit again when we do a Chattanooga trip.More

Stopped in here after a day at the aquarium and children’s museum. We paid for all day parking and took advantage of staying in the area. This was a great choice! We all left stuffed! Pulled pork could’ve been “pulled” a little more, but tasted...fantastic. Beans were amazing and exactly what I look for at a good bbq joint. I’m not a rib person, but others in party had some. Our server suggested mustard style, and apparently they were the best flavor on the sampler plate. We didn’t do dessert here; instead walked literally right across the street and got a moon pie. I’d recommend both places!More

Service slow even though there was only a handful of customers, portions were very small for the price and pork was dried out.

We were in Chattanooga for Memorial Day and my other half wanted a good BBQ so we stopped here. We were not disappointed! He had the Sampler platter with chicken, ribs, and pulled pork and I have the veggie plate with mac and cheese, sweet...potato casserole, cole slaw, and hush puppies. All the food was great, especially the chicken and sweet potato casserole. Our server, Ashley, was fantastic. Very friendly and efficient. We asked for drink ideas and she recommended the Jeremiah spiked tea. It was so delicious we got 2 ! She was hustling to serve everyone, but did it with a smile and great conversation. We are so happy we chose Sticky Fingers and will definitely be back if we're in town again.More

This is our second time at the Chattanooga location. The first time our service was ok, but our server was lackluster. This time everything was fabulous and Melissa was fantastic!!!!

We've visited the Greenville, SC location several times and have always had an excellent experience, so we were very excited to see that we had one around the corner from our hotel. We were both hungry and excited at the same time. Unfortunately, it went...downhill from there. Our server Robin S took almost 15 minutes to come to our table and take our drink order. She was virtually a ghost the entire time to us, and her colleagues were unable to locate her multiple times. My wife found her hanging out in the restroom by accident. So, our service was some of the worst that we had experienced. The banana pudding tasted so bland, that it appeared to be cheap vanilla pudding with some banana chunks and vanilla wafers thrown in. The brisket nachos were cold when they finally arrived. In other words, if this had been our first Sticky Fingers experience...it would surely be our last. We will just stick to the Greenville location for our happy Sticky Finger experiences.More

We decided to come to Sticky Fingers because of the great reviews on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed! First of all they very COVID-19 conscious which was nice to see. All servers and guests had masks on in the restaurant. The atmosphere is like...a cross between a tavern and roadhouse. Loud music played on the speakers but it lends itself well to the overall vibe in the restaurant. My husband ordered the rib combo platter- which came with three different types of rib sauce, and I ordered a half rack of ribs-regular sauce. Since I am gluten and dairy free, I was not able to partake of most of the dinner sides but I did not mind because I came for the ribs and they were excellent! The portion of ribs was so large on both dinner items that we ended up taking the rest to our hotel to finish later. Their rib sauce is a velvety, smooth, smokey heaven and we both cannot wait to come back to Chattanooga to eat some more of their delicious ribs!More

Its okay. Not terrible...just average. It used to be much, much better the last time we came to Chats. Now granted, it has been a few years but at that time, we even inquired about buying a franchise for the Hendersonville, TN area. I don't...think I would today. Our server was great. The food was average. The mixed drinks soft pours. They did have a few nice selections of local distillery beer that my wife said were good. I hate to say this but you would have better tasting food at a way cheaper barbecue place.More

I believe so but it is really good. Not the normal funky chain food.
