Loved the ribs. Had sweet potato casserole and collard greens with cornbread. Husband and I shared the full slab of ribs. COVID social distancing in place.

My Husband is a huge BBQ lover....me not so much. BUT sticky fingers may have changed my mind! Some of the best ribs I’ve ever had! Loved getting them plain and trying all the different sauces!! The kids got the wings and couldn’t quit raving...over them as well!! We will definitely be back!!More

Went to dinner here with 10 family members. Restaurant was empty. Our server was great! Food, not so much. We had a variety of dishes. Ribs were probably the best at around a 5/10. Brisket was dry and stringy, Turkey was tough and overcooked, Wings...were inedible, even salads were not good. Fried sweet corn 🌽 was cold in middle. Best part was nachos and tater tots. Take a pass.More

I ordered the 2-meat combo for lunch. I got the smoked turkey and the wings. Mmm good. I really liked their slaw and hush puppies.

In town for work. This was close by and went in for what I thought was going to be good BBQ. Beans were room temp and had a nuckle of pork grissel. Sauces ate on table with refrigerate after opening. So far I've survived....one hour...in. The ribs were okay but this place isn't worth the effort with all the other local choices.More

1st time at Sticky Fingers. We had the smoked wings, pulled chicken, and dry rub ribs. All was excellent. The smoked wings were some of the best I've ever had. Fried pickles appetizer amazing. The variety of BBQ sauce was outstanding! Management and staff were...very friendly. We will definitely be back again on our next trip to Chattanooga.More

We ordered the Rib Sampler for two featuring four of their five rib preparation styles; the meat was so tender that it just fell of of the bone. There was a choice of five different BBQ sauces on the tables (I preferred the Kentucky Bourbon...and Memphis Original flavors). As for the four sides that we ordered with the meal, I thought that their mac ‘n cheese was great, the collard greens fair, the cinnamon apples sweet and the cornbread dry and crumbly. We were too full for dessert, but the pecan pie, peach cobbler with ice cream and banana pudding were appealing. Service was fair. The table should have been cleaned better and the booth seat cushions were worn out and uncomfortable to sit on.More

My wife and I live 1-1/2 hours away and enjoy visiting Chattanooga often. We just celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary and chose to eat at our favorite restaurant, Sticky Fingers. Although, we enjoy all of the sauces, Memphis Original is the best. We have since...enjoyed dry rub on ribs and smoked wings which is our favorite, the best with deep flavors. The management shows concern over the customer experience which is important to us since we spend time traveling to visit for the great food and service.More

We've known about Sticky Fingers for years so on our way back through Chatanooga, TN knew we wanted to stop in and get some of their delicious BBQ. All the staff were very friendly and accommodating. James, our waiter, was very attentive plus had his...own brand of southern humor to boot. My husband had the BBQ sandwich and I had the dry rub ribs. Sorry for other restaurants that I will not mention. They are a close second but Sticky Fingers has the best dry rub as far as I'm concerned. My husband was very, very satisfied with his BBQ sandwich.More
