Sticky Fingers

Macon increased in stature last week, when Sticky Fingers opened a restaurant in the new mall at 5080 Riverside Drive. I'd never been to Sticky Fingers before but I knew I was in for a treat when the cutlery arrived wrapped in a hand towel! The menu offers ample variety and I decided to try the ribs and pulled pork sandwich combo. The meal comes with two sides and I chose the slaw and seasoned fries. Sticky Fingers features several types of barbecue sauce. I road-tested the Tennessee Whiskey sauce.

The food was delicious, from the fall-off-the-bone ribs to the richly-flavored pulled pork. The seasoned fries were the best I'd tasted in a while. I was particularly impressed with the Tennessee Whiskey sauce. I've tried several whiskey-flavored barbecue sauces before and they all fell way short in comparison to that offered at Sticky Fingers.

This was a fun place to eat. The service was reasonably good - the new team at this newly-opened restaurant was still in the process of coordinating itself. Fair play, it was their first few days. I'm really looking forward to going back to Sticky Fingers again soon.

We went today and enjoyed the cheddar fries and two of the salad selections. Yum!
