It has been a while since we've been here because it seemed like everything was going downhill. We came back because they've been vocal about making a turnaround. The first thing I noticed was a dedicated gluten-free menu, which is a welcome change. I felt safe eating here. Our server did a great job overall. The portions were pretty large,... More

We don't usually visit chain restaurants, but late and tired, we drove to Sticky Fingers. Little did we know, the best server in Tennessee was waiting for us. The food is good, nothing special, but hearty and well priced. The rib sampler for 2 was our option that night, with a side of brisket and some fried catfish. What made... More

Service from bartender who waited on us was awesome. Nachos good, pulled pork and chicken sandwiches were great. The meats were a tad dry but the sauces they offer were excellent! We will be back!

The ribs and sides were pretty good, hence the 2 stars, but the place was so dirty... we sat at the bar next to dirty plates from people who had left, and they still weren't cleared by the time we left. Tables in the bar area went uncleared the entire time we were there too. We had to ask the... More

Amazing food! We got the sampler rib platter for two. It was delicious. We were both very pleased. We loved the slaw and the baked beans. My kids got the smoked wings and kids BBQ sandwich. They enjoyed their meal. Linsey was our waitress and she was awesome. She really took care of us. Our food was served very fast... More

I decided to try Sticky Fingers when I checked out the menu and saw they offered Memphis Dry Rub ribs. They did not live up to my expectations. For one, I thought they were overlooked so that the meat itself was dry (not juicy). The dry Rub was too much and really just seemed like a thick coating of seasoning... More

This is just an average BBQ restaurant - nothing exceptional, nothing horrible. Our party ordered different items off of the menu, and nothing really stood out as being great. The Loaded Cheese Fries seemed sort of soggy and lacked flavor. The dry rub ribs had good flavor, but were DRY. As was the pulled chicken - DRY, and pretty tasteless.... More
