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?

“Ribs were good!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

This place specializes in ribs and wings. They are dry smoked and you get a choice of 5 sauces or can have them dry. Sides were good too. Not the best I've had but decent.

As always, the food is Excellent! On Sundays, they have an All You Can Eat buffet, which is a great deal. The service is always Top Notch! Thank you for continuing to provide Great Food and Great Service!!

“Great service keeps us coming back.”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

The ribs and BBQ were very good and the sauce variety also very good. What made this visit uniquely awesome was.our Server - Sage.
Sage treated us not like customers on the Friday night of a long Memorial Day weekend, instead we were treated like family.
Sage was attentive (and busy) and even made time for our young son.
The BBQ and ribs were great as always but the service is what makes us come back time after time.

“Great Barbecue”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

This is one of our regular stops when downtown Chattanooga. It is near the center of the area we like to walk. The pulled pork and the ribs are excellent as well as the many sides they offer. One of the best things about them is their variety of sauces, all of which are brought to your table. Come early though, the wait can be somewhat long for a table. Don't overlook the outside tables, sometimes you have to ask.
