Carolina Wings and Rib House
1712 W. Palmetto St.
Florence, SC 29501

This is a South Carolina chain; they seem to have locations in most major areas of the state and are expanding into North Carolina according to Larry Fries general manager for this location. All their BBQ and other foods are cooked at each location from scratch. With a name like Wings and Rib House that is exactly what I had to try; wings and ribs combo. They offer quite a variety of different wing flavors and five different BBQ sauces; one option is dry rub only. I went for the hot wings and dry rub ribs. I was served a platter with 6 wings and 1/2 slab of ribs. The wings were fairly typical buffalo style chicken wings. They had good flavor and I would order them again. I was pleasantly surprised by the ribs. They were actually slightly crispy outside with the rub cooked into them to give them some bark, but very moist and tender inside. The bite came clean from the bone with just a little tug and their rub gave them good flavor along with the smoke. I tried a couple of the sauces on the side and all were quite good. All in all Carolina Wings and Rib House was a good choice for a late dinner. I would definitely eat there again. Several forum folks had suggested I try Roger’s Bar-B-Q House in Florence. Unfortunately they are only open on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday so I had to miss out on that one. Tomorrow I hope to try a place in Columbia called Little Pigs that the locals highly recommend.
