Description: Sticky Fingers Ribhouse has been smokin’ up the BBQ scene in the Southeast for the past 25 years. We’re known for our authentic Memphis-style slow-smoked ribs, no-sauce-needed hickory-smoked wings and mouthwatering barbecue pork & chicken. With classic sides to complement our meats plus a full bar and homemade desserts, you’ll soon understand why we’ve become Legendary. We currently have 12 restaurant locations in the Carolinas, Tennessee and Florida. The sweet smell of hickory wood that welcomes you upon arrival is a sure sign that all our smoked meats are still slow cooked on-site in our barbecue pits. It is that same commitment to tradition and authenticity that makes our restaurants and signature barbecue sauces so popular. Yes, the Sticky Fingers Barbecue Sauces you see in your grocery store … that’s us! Our five award-winning signature sauces – Memphis Original, Carolina Classic, Tennessee Whiskey, Carolina Sweet and Sweet Southern Heat – are served daily in our restaurants. Demand from Sticky Fingers fans led to the development of our retail line of sauces, which are now distributed in over 5,000 grocery stores and specialty shops across the country. If you’re not near us but craving Sticky, our sauces, seasonings and gifts are available on our website for shipment across the United States. Not up for dining-in?

People have strong feelings about BBQ. We want different meats and different preparations. There's beef brisket, chicken, and pulled pork, but it's a Rib House! If we can agree on St. Louis Ribs, we get our choice in preparations from Dry to a number of Sauces. Two of us had a half slab, one Carolina Sweet and the other Tennessee Whiskey. Sides were Beans, Fried Corn, Mac'N'Cheese, Southern Rice. The meals were nothing short of Outstanding! It was our first Sticky, in Mt. Pleasant SC, all over again. Totally GOOD! Topped with a Chocolate Funnel Cake dessert that's served with Vanilla Ice Cream. The Half Slab Dinners are well worth the price. No need to order additional ribs. I like a good meal, well served, filling without leftovers, and Sticky Fingers delivered all this along with friendly service. Then why not "5" across the board? Something needs a "point off" for booth and restroom not quite perfectly clean. OK, won't chase you off or keep you away, just that they could do better in housekeeping.

Picked up a take-out order today today, LOTS of wings and salads. These are not those wimpy, scrawny, half baked bones people are used too getting.These are nice big meaty tasty jumbo wings. Dry rubbed and cooked to perfection.
This is the last day of 2017 and as such must have chicken because it "scratches back" and you review the year. On New Years day must have pork because it "roots forward."
Every trip to Florida we stop at Sticky Fingers at least twice, every year we enjoy it. This is a great place, great food, great people. The ribs are good too,. but that's another review.
Go there, you will not be disappointed.

My wife and I were happy to find a Sticky Fingers near our hotel. We have been fans from years ago at several locations. This night, not so much. The staff was friendly enough. I ordered the sampler platter. Part of the ribs were over cooked, the baked beans side was nearly flavorless and the cole slaw just the same.

Seriously, I came in 1900 on a Tuesday....out of ribs. I expected more having lived in Charleston, SC and was a frequent customer at the original store.

This used to be one of our favorite rib places. We haven't been there for a few years, so the unfortunate change was shocking. The place really looks run down and in need of remodeling. The seat in my booth had a large rip in it and the seat moved considerably when the person in the next booth got up or down. The food was not up to par either. The ribs and chicken were very dry and appeared to have been sitting around in the kitchen for some time. The cole slaw had way too much mayo in it. The only bright spot was the service--she was very friendly and efficient.
