This chain food restaurant needs a major overhaul on the inside dirty Dusty they had a new cook the barbecue that we received was burnt returned it and walked out I would go again if they updated the interior but because we're in South Carolina you can get really good barbecue at different restaurants this is maybe for the first...

Had to try the place since we've eaten at a ton of places. Took all the family. Enjoyed the fried pickles. The sauces were tasty. But the Ribs a little over cooked. Prices decent. Our waitress was awesome and knew her stuff about Southern foods but she wasn't the chef and the food wasn't the best.

This is not one of the better BBQ restaurants in the area. Chicken is good but the pork isn't very flavorful...they depend on the variety of sauces for that. Sides are ok. Staff is always friendly . Pudding taste like it comes from a can. Much better choices close by for real southern bbq.

We enjoy Sticky Fingers every time we go. The food is exceptional and the staff is always very friendly and accommodating. We have 3 special needs adult children and the staff is very patient and friendly. Sticky Fingers catered my daughters wedding. It was perfect and stress free. They are experts at catering and knew what they were doing.

Food was not very appetizing! Waitress got the order wrong. The best thing was the sweet tea! Will not eat here again!

Good food. Service was good as well. Big portions also. Decent price. Service was a bit slow at times. Ordered banana pudding for dessert took 15 minutes to get it. Then it was extremely cold like they had pulled it out the feeezer and thawed it for my order.

The operating partner Karen Williams seated us herself. My wife got pulled pork dinner. Karen recommended wings for me. She even went out of her way to make sure that my drink order was perfect. I don't know of anything she could have done to make this any better. A lot of great food for a great price.

We popped into Sticky Fingers for the first time on a Saturday evening. We were sat in Christina's section and she brought us our drinks + complementary corn bread and free sample wings. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and made a clear effort to ensure our first visit was a good one. The food was pretty good. Not exceptional, but still... More

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.
