“Best ribs hands down”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

My wife and I were so sad to see our local Sticky Fingers in Wilmington go out of business. We now will take a trip to Myrtle beach to get those smoky fall off the bone ribs. I will say this is the best place that we have ever been, when it comes to bbq ribs. When you walk in the door, the first thing you smell is that wonderful smoky smell of ribs on the grill. The sauces are their own special flavors and include Tennessee Whisky, Habanero (My favorite), and much more. My wife is very fond of the dry rub instead of the sauce. The fries are not your ordinary everyday variety either. The sweet potato casserole is one of our other favorite side items. You could eat the casserole as a dessert, since it is a bit sweet and buttery. You cannot beat the rib deal 2 for 26 dollars. You get a huge amount of ribs with your choice of 4 different sauces and 4 sides. Love it all.

“I come here for the WINGS :)”
Reviewed 10 April 2013

Sticky Fingers is a barbecue restaurant. A very good barbecue restaurant, at that. Several years ago we had their wings for an appetizer. And that wing app turned out to be the first of many dozens of Sticky Fingers wings for our household! They are perfect! At least, to our liking they are. They are not fried, nor breaded. (yay!)
The wings are done in the pit, which caramelizes the outsides a bit...just like we love them! They come w/o sauce on them, so you can dip in any of their different bbq sauces, ranch, bleu cheese, or, just eat 'em plain up caramelized!
When we have a craving for wings, Sticky Fingers is THE place for us. And we have to pass roughly a bazillion wing places...no problem, as none of them do wings like 'our' Sticky Fingers does wings!
Anytime we have a gathering to attend where people bring food, people count on us bringing the wings. Everybody who's had them with us loves them.
Try them next time if you've not already!
