Going to Sticky Fingers

Ok, I don't like restaurants much at all. For various reasons such as I can usually prepare much better food for less money. But tomorrow I need to meet my youngest son's future in-laws. They suggested Sticky Fingers. I agreed to be gracious but my hearts not in it. Especially when it comes to real BBQ, I can out do any offering I've ever had at a restaurant.

So help me out, is there anything that you'd recommend from their menu ?

Obviously, this meal is not about the food. I've never heard of this restaurant, so can't make any suggestions, other than, have fun, relax, and enjoy each other's company.
Let us know how it goes.

Sticky Fingers is a chain type restaurant that boasts BBQ. They are mostly in NC, SC, FL, GA and TN. I guess it compares to Outback or similar chains

I'm sure you know as Wyogal says, it's not really about food. You have to remember some people eat to live others live to eat. What you like and can make yourself is superior, I'm sure, but to them this might be their favorite place to eat.You don't want to hurt feelings, so, Peace in a family at times is difficult, but we make the best of it. Put on a smile (I know you will) be gracious and win them over..When you've gotten to know them better, invite them over and go for it in the BBQ department..You child will be so proud of you and forever grateful..Smiles will get you farther than a fown.

I agree with everyone above. I will make the best of it. And I am excited to meet them. I hope I didn't come off as just worried about what I was going to eat. I just thought maybe someone could recommend something.

We met our son's future in-laws at the rehearsal dinner!!!! We hosted everyone at a pizza place, the couple chose it. It was wonderful! I had told the bride that it was tradition in my family to have pizza and beer for rehearsal dinner. It was great fun. (Virginia Beach, PIzzeria, like Pi... math) We also had their fabulous red and white sangrias, topped off with cannolli's for dessert.
I don't think any of the family is Italian in any way!!!! Except for loving the food!

As mentioned, it's not about the food. They probably picked that restaurant because your son probably made a comment about how you love BBQ and make it at home all the time.

Order whatever you like to eat and don't make any negative comments about the food or the restaurant.

Complain to us when you get home.
