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.

“Great Food”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

My husband loves this place and we go here anytime we are near Charleston/Mt. Pleasant. The food is always great and so is the service. I'm not much of a meat/rib eater but they have a broccoli and cheese baked potato which is awesome! It is huge and is easily a meal for one person.

“Great price with a lot of food”
Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

I lived in the inn right next to it and the front desk gave me some coupons of sticky fingers so I decided to try. I'm not a really meat lover and for most of the time im a vegetarian. But the BBQ and rib did taste good. I ordered a platter and it was way too much for me. I also got a free chocolate lava cake with the coupon.

“Good Food, Many Different Sauces”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

I like barbecue and was not disappointed with the food here. Went out with another couple and we all planned on getting different items so we could share, that did not happen cause everybody loved their choice.

The combo plates are great, but the sides were really small which included some of the best fries I have had in a long time. I liked the option of trying numerous different type of sauces, the habanero was my favorite.

Staff were friendly and helpful and after watching the parade of boats it was nice to be inside and sitting down. Will definitely visit this small regional chain again!
