Description: He 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.

Star right off the top for staff smiling and happy when we walk in the door!
Drinks and corn muffins brought quickly without asking for them!
That gets another star! This place is earning stars!
Server actually knew the menu!
BBQ SAUCE Yes!!!! Take your pick they are GOOOOD!!

Let's talk FOOD!
Nothing was burnt or grossly overbooked which is a big plus considering the meals we've eaten recently in GA.
It was served in a timely matter.
We ordered chicken wings & ribs came with beans which I have to say were really good!
I make awesome beans and these were good!

Salad was fresh no slimy lettuce we are happy!

Chicken and ribs were good not to die for but perfectly edible --- add the sauces and you are set for a more than pleasurable meal.

Server is attentive but not to much.

Bring an appetite and enjoy a pleasant BBQ!

4 Stars --- for GA DINING!

We stopped here on our way back home to Atlanta. We were ready to be home so we were so happy they were fast and quick getting our food to us. I had beef brisket sandwich with baked beans. The amount of beef on sandwich was plentiful and the baked beans were steamy hot! Husband had pulled pork with seasoned fries and he gobbled it up. I would stop here again. Sweet Carolina BBQ sauce was the best.

Great sauce, bland food...
Its ok - but its not something to go out of your way for.
We figured it would be good - after seeing the sauce in the store. But the food was just bland - no smoke, not taste.

Visited in hopes of finding this chain as excellent as the downtain Chattanooga restaurant. To make it short and sweet, we walked in took one look around and only ordered one drink at the bar. The place was nasty, empty, and the bartender was actually sticking her fingers down in peoples drinks after using a nasty rag to clean the bar area. Definitely needs alot of work and better management.
