Sticky Fingers is still open? I thought it burned down or something? I think the owner died not too long ago. Didn't care for those "rock mountain oysters." Have they changed the menu, now serving tex-mex food?

Still open and they have been doing Tex-Mex for 4-5 years. I like their BBQ. The Tex-Mex is average. I also like the Memphis House on 1-A in So. Attleboro for BBQ and their beans.

LJ's BBQ on Hope St (next to Garden Grill) is amazingly good. I lived next door to their previous location near PC for about a year and probably gained a few pounds going there

Good BBQ also, but when they went East Side/Oak Hill upscale you lost the one on one with the chef. It was a great down to earth place to eat when it was in Eagle Park.
