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.

“Variety on the Menu & Great Sauces”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Lateley I have been getting the Ribs! I love trying the different sauces and they lunch special are really good. Sometimes our timing is off, but most days we have been in and out of the restraurant in 30 minutes to work with our lunch schedule. Service has always been good. Endless sweet tea seems to flow very well.

“Converted a rib hater to a rib lover”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

MMMMMMMMMMMM. That's all I have to say. I really don't like ribs but couldn't really decide on anything else so I tried them. All kinds of different sauces to try, and only rack. Alas I chose Carolina sauce. GOOD Choice! Meat fell off the bone. Also had a peach cobbler that I really didn't need but had to have. Really great. We were there on a Sunday and they had 2/1 margaritas. Ole I say! Would recommend highly.

“Fair at best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2014 via mobile

Not a BAD restaurant per se, but the cons outweighed the pros. Our server was distant, mumbled, and was hard of hearing (an unusual combination). The portions were small, specifically the chicken fingers kids meal of which I included a photo. Even the server was agreeing once we mentioned, and brought out two more strips on a plate. We appreciated that. Kids meal did include a drink, and the cherry coke was a Roy Rogers, not just fountain Cherry Coke which was nice.

The ribs were the best part. Very smoky and tasty with flavorful choice of sauces.

You may try it and like it, but for a great BBQ experience, we'll just go to Mojo's.

“"Just Ok"”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

Was here this past weekend with a family of four, nothing really to rave about. The food was just ok, the pulled pork was really dry as well as the chicken. This was just another franchise bbq place, the server was not overly friendly and there really was no southern hospitality here. If you look around you could probably find something better. The following review was just my 2 cents.
