This location of Sticky Fingers is awesome. Both food, service and management are Tops! We will travel again to another Sticky Fingers in Chattanooga since they don't have one yet in Atlanta! Their great sauce is available at Fresh Market which is also good to know if you run out.

If you want good BBQ this is the place to go. Most of the time if a bbq joint had St Louis style ribs I shy away. I've had way too many tough St Louis style ribs. I decided to try the ribs here (St Louis style) and I was not disappointed. The meat was extremely tender, basically fell off... More

Thankfully we had a gift card. The food was horrible right down to flat sodas. The only thing I can say nice about this place is the waitress was very kind.

1. Short of staff, we heard a manager ask one of the servers to run over to Walmart for supplies! 2. Our server, who was also working as host, bartender and bus boy, apologized for his clogged up nose! 3. I ordered the salad with pulled chicken. I found 3 long sharp bones in it.

A local standard, it never disappoints. Expect a barbeque atmosphere, but more refined than many. Good food with ample portions.

The staff, atmosphere, and barbecue were awesome. The only reason I did not give them 5 stars was the two sides I got. While the slaw and beans were ok, I expected more from a place with such good barbecue. This, however, does not stop me from eating there as often as possible!!!

My wife and I stopped at Sticky Fingers on a whim. We were driving past it, hungry, and I said, "Let's try here." I had never heard of them. I was pleasantly surprised to walk into a better than average barbeque joint. We both had pulled pork sandwiches, which were smokey, plentiful, and very good. Service was fast and friendly.... More

I eat here once per month. Food quality is consistently delicious. The pulled pork bbq is awesome. They offer 5 signature sauce choices. I recently tried the smoked chicken, which is the best I have tasted thus far. Other must-try items are fried corn on the cob, and the fried onion loaf, complete with dipping sauce.
