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?

The food was good. But the bartender sucked. After this mother and daughter left he told someone that work there he wish he could sleep with both of them. Out loud so everyone head him. So don't bring your family here.

Very good food. Smoked turkey was a little dry but I really enjoyed this place. I wish there was one closer to where I live.

The ribs tasted old somehow. The chicken was totally dried out. The green beans were straight from a can. The server went on and on about how well seasoned their greens beans were, so when she recommended the bread pudding for dessert....no thanks.

I'm sorry you found your food to be lackluster. I'm passing your review along to the store manager and we will use it to improve our chicken and green beans. I hope you can give us another chance so we can knock your socks off with both great food and great service!

Echoing similar reviews...no bread...no silverware...no napkins, even after appetizers arrived! We had to beg for things...they forgot to bring out dinner salad sides that were part of the dinner and said they would remove it from the bill but didn't! I really regret my decision to go there. It was bad. One in our group ordered a salad and asked for no bacon. It of course came out with bacon. They went to get another, but left the bacon version on the table. Next salad came out 20 minutes(for a salad!!) No bacon, thank you, but wait, no croutons, no dressing, etc. Screwed it up. She gave up and ate what they gave her, after all the rest of us had eaten.

This one was located near a mall. The atmosphere of the restaurant is really nice along with the customer service. The ribs were ok, on the dry side. But, I loved the variety of bbq sauces. Prices were reasonable, but liked the to go menu better. But was not allowed to order from the to go menu while dining in. I would return, but would not reorder the ribs.
