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. In addition to its core restaurant business, the company has generated successful catering, online mail order and retail barbecue sauce businesses. Sticky Fingers offers guests monthly offers and updates through its StickEClub.

“Average at best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is why i hate chains. first off, a 40 minute wait and after eating here, I want my 40 minutes back. There were dirty tables everywhere, like 1 out of 3. Our waitress was nice but overwhelmed and the food was average like it all came out of a can. Not one thing was good southern home cooking sides. The best thing was Ben the bartender...he was swamped but friendly and tried to make the most of it. So sorry this isn't better, it could be.

“BBQ for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

Good food (lots of meat on the ribs, cole slaw good, appetizer onion rings could have had bigger pieces, but sauce very good), reasonably priced, wait-staff very friendly. Nice, clean restaurant. Finally found some parking close by on the street.

“Excellent Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

My husband and I enjoyed a late lunch at Sticky Fingers in downtown Chattanoonga. Service was excellent without too much "hovering". The nachos with pork appetizer was excellent. When visiting Chattanooga again, I will certainly make this a dinner destination!

Their ribs are superb! I've had a couple of their other items on other visits. But, I keep coming back for the ribs. :)
