The service was great. Food came out quick and was delicious. The onion loaf was a first, highly recommend it. All the BBQ sauces offered something for everyone. Ribs, beans, mac and cheese, and wings were good. Burger nothing to brag about. Fries were also good.

Had the half BBQ chicken off the bone which was dry and tasted like it had come out of a cooler and microwaved instead of just boned from a freshly cooked chicken. Manager was friendly and did not charge me, but confirmed that the meat was boned that morning...which was about 5 hours earlier...and balled up, and that they usually... More

Stopped in around 2:00 with my wife. She ordered bbq nachos and I got the rib and wings combo. The 2 sides included potato salad and beans. The food was good but only 3 wings? Also the potato salad had a funny taste. The bbq nachos were good. Our server was just going through the motions. I understand that! Overall... More

Greeted by a friendly host and seated right away. Our food arrived quickly but was just average in taste. They have 5 BBQ sauces on each table. Service was pretty good and friendly but she was a bit busy.

Admittedly, our choices were few and far between. We were shopping at Hambriks and drove up to the mall for lunch and more shopping at Belks. Honestly, I wasn't excited about Sticky's because I was not impressed the last time we were here. They stepped up. The service was spot on and our food was fast and tasty even though... More

This is a great barbecue place with a variety of five different sauces. The ribs are great and you have your choice of dry rubs or sauces. The pulled meats are also good. The baked beans are delicious. The lunch menu is great as it consists of smaller versions of the dinner offerings.

I drove an hour for my free birthday dinner but even being free, dinner was not up to expectations. Service was mediocre at best. It took forever to get waited on and then the waiter would be MIA for a while. I have eaten at other locations and the ribs were always excellent but not here. The pulled pork was... 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.
