I travel around the country with clients looking at real estate properties for purchase and ALWAYS stop for ribs. Kristy Jordan, Manager, greeted us at the door, described our ribs choices and even gave us a "tasting". The ribs were good and meaty, sauce (I had the Memphis) was good and they made us feel like family.

Great service and experience with our server Luster. "Really sticky burger" is topped with pulled pork and slaw. It was massively flavorful and well constructed. Thank you

Along with my wife and brother in law we ate lunch here recently. The restaurant was clean and fairly busy. We were quickly seated and our drink orders taken. The appetizer was so so with the potato skins quite dry. The three of us ordered different items for the main course, I chose the four piece chicken fingers and fries.... More

So as a frequent diner, my wife and I make it a point to try new venues while traveling around the country. Greenville is home base and it is becoming apparent - traveling or not, chain-style restaurants across the board have lowered their standards. As new empty-nesters we typically get seated with no problem. Meeting with small grand kids and... More

I'll let in you in on a little secret... SHH don't let anyone know! This is THE BEST place to watch the annual Poinsettia Christmas Parade.

When this restaurant came to Greenville, everyone was excited. I've since eaten here several times- just to give it the benefit of the doubt. Maybe it's just me, but I think the food is just mediocre. The servers have all been good, but I'm just not really a fan.

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.
