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.

“Tasty BBQ”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

It was 7:30 pm and we were able to get a table after waiting less than ten minutes at the bar. The menu had a good variety and I selected pulled pork and my husbands chose the beef ribs. I enjoyed trying the different sauces at the table and liked the whisky BBQ sauce the best. The service was good.

Reviewed March 23, 2014

Best ribs and catfish I have found in years!! Best of all was the service and friendship we found in our server Kia !! She has the best smile and very friendly spirit - will make a great employee no matter where she works. We went back a second time based on the food and especially to see Kia :)

“It was okay, not stellar.”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

Sticky Fingers was a recommendation from TA. I think it is a bit overrated as far as the restaurant scene in Charleston. It looks like it has a big college following. It was clean, big menu, decent beer selection on tap. I think BBQ is one of those personal preference foods. Our waiter recommended the dry rub process. My husband got ribs and loved them. I got a combo plate (smaller portion) and while it was ok, the ribs were so dried out, even adding one of the many sauces didn't help. The chicken was all right. I left most of the cole slaw. The atmosphere is really good, as was our server.

“Good BBQ, good prices, great service”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

The food selection was great so many choices and even an option to just make a meal out of the typically southern sides. Loved the combos, a little taste of several items really hit the spot. We were seated immediately, probably because of the rain not so many people in the area. The server was friendly and attentive, food came out quickly and was really quite tasty. I felt for the portions and selections the prices were reasonable, less than what I anticipated walking in. Would definitely go again.

“Fun Casual Dinner”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

We wanted a quick meal and drink before a walking tour so we stopped into Sticky Fingers as it was right across the street from our hotel. The food was really good - lots of options for BBQ - and really large portions. Good service and our food came out quickly. They have a nice selection of beers on tap.
