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.

Food here was okay, if you want something authentic, this is not for you. Pretty sure our food sat on a hot plate all day. Corn is deep friend, I liked that, but some people may not enjoy friend veggies. Server was awesome friendly and helpful.

This food is amazing. Being from the North, I'm always longing to find that great vinegary carolina bbq pulled pork, and OMG let me tell you, I found it here. The sauces are to die for. I also had collard greens for the first time (always wanted to try them), and they were amazing. The atmosphere is great-people nice and it has that sweet southern charm. This is definitely a must go after shopping at Concord Mills

“Very nice for anyone!”

We ate here with a large group consisting of a few teenagers and they all approved. The food arrived quickly and was all correct. Service was friendly and the atmosphere was very well done in the bar area with lots of games on the tv.

“Good 'ol barbecue”
Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

This was not our first trip to a sticky fingers. It it was to this one. The hostess was friendly and we were seated right away even though it was a Friday night. Our waitress was great, not overbearing but not disappearing either. The manager was really friendly as well greeting us when we walked in, asking us how the food was and thanking us as we left. The food was great, we did the rib sampler for two and the ribs did not disappoint. We will definitely be back to satisfy out hankering for good BBQ !!!

Okay it had been a while since I had been to Sticky Fingers and well they delivered the deliciousness that I remember. Ribs were excellent and the fried corn my goodness! The manager was on point and super friendly (the way a manager should be). The only complaint I had is that my stomach was not big enough to eat it all!!! I will be a repeat diner at this establishment!!!
