“just okay”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We spotted this restaurant as we were getting off of the interstate on our way to our hotel. The name captured our attention and we thought it sounded fun. Checked the reviews on tripadvisor and decided it would be worthwhile.

There were two families in our party, 4 adults and two kids (12 and 10) Three ordered dinners that had the pulled pork. All agreed that while it was perfectly acceptable and not bad, it was certainly not great as others has stated. The ribs seemed to be liked much better. The wings, just so so. No one finished their dinner but no one liked it enough to get a to-go box for the left overs.

The only item that seemed to be above par was the hush-puppies. They appeared to have actual corn kernels. So While I never imagined a hush-puppy could be the star of the DInner plate, these were really good.

“Delicious”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

We were staying at the Hampton Inn and walked right to Sticky Fingers. The food was fantastic and a good price. We all got something different and totally enjoyed it. We did not have to wait for a table and the staff was friendly.

“Rude workers!”
Reviewed 4 March 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 13 November 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.
