Description: 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 signature barbecue sauces so popular. Yes, the Sticky Fingers Barbecue Sauces you see in your grocery store … that’s us! Our five award-winning signature sauces – Memphis Original, Carolina Classic, Tennessee Whiskey, Carolina Sweet and Sweet Southern Heat – are served daily in our restaurants. Demand from Sticky Fingers fans led to the development of our retail line of sauces, which are now distributed in over 5,000 grocery stores and specialty shops across the country. If you’re not near us but craving Sticky, our sauces, seasonings and gifts are available on our website for shipment across the United States. Not up for dining-in?

“Solid BBQ for the money; disorganized service”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

This place has reliable bbq-- delicious ribs, pork, slaw, and sweet tea. I wish the service were better for large parties, but really you're not paying a ton for the stuff. Sticky Fingers is all over town, catering events and delivering reliably.

“Low country ribs”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

If you like ribs this is a good choice. Service was good, the order came in a timely manner, the sauces were very good. Best dining experience I had all week. So much so I went twice.

“With so much to choose from this place just doesnt shine.”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We tried this place for lunch and was not as impressed as we thought we would be. The food is average and the portions are not what we expected for the price. You do get your choice of five different sauces to choose from for your bbq but that is not reason enough to go. Feels more like a chain restaurant than authentic bbq. I would try elsewhere.

“Middle of the road.”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Pretty good ribs. I think the silver skin is left on the backs of the racks which makes for a less than desirable eating experience, but the taste of the meat was good. Awesome sauces. Chicken wings were ok. Fried corn side is where it's at. We may seek out other BBQ options next time around.

“The service was good. The food, unimpressive.”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

Think his name was Josh. Efficient and friendly. Atmosphere was pretty good, and surprisingly quiet for being fairly busy. The burger was quite overcooked and dried out under the pedestrian sauce. I thought the brisket {pieces} sub was pretty good although light on the pieces. Had a little side of mushy mac and cheeze which needed a little more velveeta and a quick broil to crunch up the top-
