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?

Six of us enjoyed ribs and sides. The meat fell off the bone and almost melted in my mouth. Good beer selection. Sitting outside was nice. Good waiter. Good cornbread. Mac n cheese was better than Kraft.

We are on vacation, heading home from Florida. We just had dinner at Sticky Fingers on Broad Street in Chattanooga. The service was great. My wife's pulled pork was great. The sides were great, including the corn bread muffins. Unfortunately, my Memphis Wet Ribs were terrible. The meat was dry, tough, and stringy. We stopped at Sticky Fingers for the first time in Charleston several years ago and everything, including the ribs, was great. These were the worst ribs I have ever had.

Thank you so much for stopping in for dinner before returning home to Florida. We're glad to hear you enjoyed great service during your visit and that your wife enjoyed her pulled pork and sides. We are bummed to hear your ribs weren't up to our high standards and will definitely use your comments wisely. Thank you again and we do hope to see you in the future.

Went for dinner with the kids. Ended up getting boxes and leaving as soon as our food arrived. Tables were sticky. Server acted like our presence annoyed her. Came to take our order (she only wanted to drinks first, not our food order, and told us so), came back to bring our drinks, then our check. Food was pretty good, it's too bad the service was terrible.

We were starving and wanted to watch the Michigan/ Loyola game and the parking attendant said this place was great! I had ribs, baked beans, and cole slaw and it was good. My son had macaroni, corn bread, and caramel apple dish. He enjoyed it and Michigan won!! The staff was attentive and great! The atmosphere was fun!
