With football season in full swing, Carolina Wings caters to a fun crowd with finger-licking good food and plenty of places to watch your team’s game. There are big-screen TVs around the bar area, as well as at individual booths.

The mouth-watering appetizers make it hard to choose just one, so the Lunch Bunch opted for the Carolina Sampler. It includes a hefty portion of fried mushrooms — which can’t be beat dipped in their special remoulade sauce — Mozzarella cheese sticks, hand-battered chicken fingers and fried zucchini rounds on a bed of their famous Wing Chips. We also couldn’t resist the potato skins loaded with bacon and nacho cheese — giant and delicious, one half can really fill you up.

We ordered a 24 plate of chicken wings, of course, with three different flavors — Carolina Rub, Buffalo Cajun Ranch and Lemon Pepper, which Elizabeth and I enjoyed the most. Buck was pleased with his chicken sandwich topped with melted cheese.

For dessert, we had to try a piece of the popular peanut butter pie, which was Buck’s favorite, as well as

a piece of the salted caramel crunch cake, which Elizabeth favored.

Carolina Wings also has a lot of beers on draft and features daily drink specials. Many are attracted to the late-night karaoke, as well as live entertainment.
