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?

Wish we had one in Nashville. I like being able to get dry rub and having a choice of sauces. The meats are all good and the mac and cheese is yummy. And if you have room, go for the bread pudding --- mwaaaaahhh!

We came in to Sticky Fingers last weekend on the recommendation of someone travelling with us. We called ahead as we had a group of 20 on a Saturday night, and I'm glad we did! We waited maybe 10 minutes and were shown to our seats. They had put us at three tables, and as we were travelling with teenagers, that was just perfect for all involved!

The barbeque was really good, I think all 20 of us were very happy and full. The best part of the evening though was the staff. Everyone from the hostess, to bartender (and his fiance who also works there), and waiter were super friendly. Our waiter, H3 (H cubed) was hilarious. He had all 20 of us on his own and never once seemed put out or annoyed. He made suggestions and jokes, and kept the drinks flowing. Anytime something would happen, he would tell a funny story about something worse that happened with a past table. It was all in good humor, and for a group of our size and complexities, he did a wonderful job. Thank you Sticky Fingers for such a great night!

We were surprised to find we didn't need reservations on a Saturday evening, in fact the restaurant was less than half full.

The service was fast and efficient, if not overly friendly. Both our dinners were served warm, not hot, as if they had been pre-made and left on the counter too long. We mentioned this to our server, but he didn't seem to be overly concerned - no effort was made to have them reheated or replaced. The quality of the food was mediocre at best.

The tables and floors were quite sticky. I don't know if this was done intentionally (Sticky Fingers!), but it left us with the feeling that the place had not been cleaned properly.

It's not quite Memphis, but it was tasty. Had the rack of ribs and the pulled pork. The brisket was actually my favorite.
