Sticky Fingers BBQ, by Rodney and Lisa Nannini, part owners of Oak Park's T&R BBQ, was scheduled to open last week, has a Yelp review, but has not yet opened.
Per Sonya Sorich in Sac Biz Journal:
At Sticky Fingers, which specializes in Texas barbecue and New Orleans soul food, customers will approach a counter of prepared foods and choose their main course and side dishes. There will be no table service...
The restaurant covers fewer than 1,000 square feet, plus an outdoor seating area. Nannini expects Sticky Fingers will stay open until 2 or 3 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, depending on the demand they see.

While I haven't had the opportunity to try Sticky Fingers, I have tried T&R BBQ and it was fantastic. I'm looking forward to giving Sticky Fingers BBQ a try.
Sticky Fingers BBQ is located at 2322 K Street. This spot was vacated by Rick's Dessert Diner when it moved to its new, larger spot on J street.
