“Rude workers!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I have never been in an eatery where they didn't say anything to you the few minutes you are there waiting, good grief!
Again, this was not a great vacation for us, here in this big city!
Never had so many problems, but this experience was one of the worse! Usually I talk to a manager about bad service, but I was going to write them a letter instead, but now I will just vent here and hope other patrons will have better service than I did!

“Best Chicken Wings in Jacksonville”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

While the Sticky Fingers Rib House off Baymeadows Drive on the East 295 Beltway has outstanding Memphis style ribs, I go there for the chicken wings. The wings are not fried, but rather smoked with the ribs and can be "heated" with various levels of treatments. I always choose the "no heat" smoked wings with addition of choices of side sauces. This time I chose the Honey Molasses sauce with some blue cheese dressing added to taste. Both my wife and I had the Chicken Wings Platter which comes with six wings and two sides. I chose the baked beans and fried corn on the cob. My wife chose the baked beans and the cold slaw. The wings were finger licking good and filled us up, along with their great iced tea to drink. I have tried chicken wings at Sonny's, Beach Road Chicken, and a couple of local places in St. Augustine, but have not found any better than Sticky Fingers has to offer.

I ordered the ribs with the side order of Tennessee Whiskey Barbecue sauce. The meat was tender and fell off the bone, It was also VERY flavorful (I was upset when the meat was eaten up) LOL . I have recommended this to several of my friends and they TOO were satisfied. The side orders were beans and fried corn on the cob. Try It you too will like it.
The atmosphere is more on the line of a Sports Bar, But is still enjoyable.

“Great ribs.”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

I always loved dry rub ribs and they have some great stuff. The habanero sauce is good too! They are always good about substitutions.

“Pretty good ribs.”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

The Sunday night of Labor Day weekend, and I have learned that Sunday night is not a good night for most restaurants, and when you add in a holiday week-end, well, you never know how many of the regular staff are off. I'm guessing this is a chain restaurant, although one we had never heard of, and we are always game to try a new place. The ribs (their specialty) were pretty good. A sampler for 2 was about $27, so not too bad. The sides, however, were pathetic. It seems most meals come with the standard sides of beans and cole slaw. The beans tasted like they were straight out of a can. If you ate slaw with the ribs, the slaw seemed to have no flavor at all. Eaten later after the ribs, it was barely OK. The other sides we had, mac & cheese and sweet potato casserole were not bad, per se, just disappointing. Service was actually good, and our server polite enough. I won't go out of my way to come again.
