We arrived after 6pm on a Saturday night. First sign that service might be an issue was when the hostess would not look at us until she finished pulling menus. How much effort does it take to look up and greet customers standing in front of you? Finally, another hostess appeared and seated us promptly. Greet, maybe that was just... More

We were a party of 28 and called ahead for room, like we did in September and had the same accommodations. The food was just as good as last time. This time I had a pulled pork dinner, which consisted of a generous amount of pork, baked beans and coleslaw. The price was very reasonable at $10.00. The rest of... More

Service was slow and sloppy. It took three requests just to get lemon for iced tea. The table top was dirty. There was a slop bucket with dirty water and a rag placed by the POS position used for table wipe downs. The ribs were tender, but dry. The pulled pork was dry and not at all flavorful. The baked...

Nothing special here - clean, friendly service. Average ribs - the dry roasted is lacking flavor. The best option on their menu is the wings - yes, wings.

I have eaten wings at both the Sticky Fingers located at River City Marketplace, Jacksonville, FL and Charleston, SC, near the straw market downtown, and both served exceptionally good food. They barbeque and flash-fry their wings, no crust, just great taste, and the dry rub ribs are outstanding, as was the pork barbeque. They offer a "sampler" plate containing two... 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. To-Go: Our complete dine-in menu is available To-Go and we have added Family-Style options for meats and sides in larger containers. In addition we offer value priced "Express Meals" To-Go. Express Meals are sized just right for families and include a pint of homemade cole salw, BBQ Baked Beans and a bottle of Sticky Fingers Sauce. Catering: We offer 3 levels of catering services for parties from 20 to 4,000! Full Service Catering Don't want to lift a finger? Let our professional catering staff do all the work for you.
