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.

“That's Good Eatin”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

We went to Sticky Fingers yesterday and sat in the bar area. Its a sports atmosphere, very comfortable. We ordered an appetizer , nachos with BBQ chicken.and when it came out. its was huge and didn't think we would have room for anything else to eat! It was very good. Our entrees came out later as we requested and had very little room for them but we will have great leftovers. Friendly people and delicious food. Definately a place to go!

“very good ribs”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Had a late lunch and had the pulled pork sandwich and ribs. It was very good. They have a least 6 different sauces that you can try which makes the experience very enjoyable.

“Great food, great service!”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Went to sticky fingers last night with some friends from work and I couldn't have been more impressed. I'm not from the area so I'd never had it before. I've tried probably four or so bbq places since I've been here, but this was the best. I got their bbq trio which has a little bit of everything, it came with chicken ribs and pork. It's hard to pick which was my favorite. But if I had to pick one it would be the pork. It was so tender and delicious. And don't get me started on the mac and cheese and their sweet potato for the sides. Will definitely be returning here in the future.

“Jazz, NC BBQ & good service!”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Our office of 7 people went out to lunch to celebrate birthdays. Our mouths were watering from the smell of the food as soon as we walked in the door. They sat us right away, eventhough we had no reservations. They had delicious cornbread for us while we waited for our food....so much so, i could have made a meal off of that alone! The BBQ chicken was delicious and i had many sides to choose from. One of us had a salad, which was very fresh. The portions were big, so we all took home to-go boxes. Lizzie, our waitress, was attentive and courteous. The location is convienant and easy to find. We'll be back!
