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.

“Good barbecue in a comfortable setting.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

Joined a group of friends all attending a weekend program. I followed their lead and gathered at a large table that accommodated all. Our waiter was delightful and attentive, with non-stop service.
I was not thrilled with the food. My husband had wings and roasted corn. He enjoyed it, and my nibble was enjoyable. I had a smoked turkey salad...boring flavor though everything fresh and crunchy.
Surprisingly, I was disappointed...looking for the flavors of Tennessee barbecue I heard so much about. We do recommended their multiple sauces available, that does add a kick of flavor to whatever you've ordered.
The restaurant dining area was comfortable. Multiple parties without the crowded feeling.

“Always a family favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Every trip that we take through Chattanooga gets us to the stop. We plan our trips to make sure we can stop by for lunch or dinner along our way to our destination. Service is always outstanding and food is a big time favorite.

The atmosphere was inviting, waiter was cordial, timely and efficient and food was average. The location was ideal because it was across from the Mall.

“The sausage is fabulous!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

I frequent Chattanooga quite a bit and although we were going to try another restaurant while in town (was closed), I knew that I could count on Sticky Fingers to hit the spot. If you like smoked sausage, then you should definitely try it here. I saved one for later and ended up enjoying my meal twice!
