Carolina Wing Company Soars Above the Competition

Let’s get one thing straight right up front: Raleigh’s Carolina Wing Company isn’t just your average Johnny-come-lately chicken wings joint. 

For starters, the restaurant’s “preflight appetizers” menu includes winning options like the distinctive jalapeño-infused bacon tots, savory pimento cheese dip and grilled and skewered chix on a stick. Of the aforementioned items, Lunchboy highly recommends the addictive, melt-in-your-mouth bacon-wrapped tots (pictured below). 

You’d also do well to check out entrees such as bourbon-glazed grilled salmon, slow-roasted prime rib or avocado-enhanced fish tacos. Even the fried catfish deserves consideration. During a recent visit, the owner offered me bite-sized catfish nuggets that hit the mark. 

When it comes to the wings, 16 flavor choices are available in traditional or boneless varieties. Requisite offerings like sweet BBQ, teriyaki and hot all satisfy, but it’s the lemon garlic and chipotle lime that are worth savoring time and again. Wings are meaty and well-executed. Be sure to try the outstanding chunky bleu cheese, which is just one more example of how Carolina Wing Company pays attention to the small details. 

The only misfire I experienced: house-made potato chips were too greasy and lacked any notable flavor. Perhaps they stayed in fry basket just a bit too long. 

Service at CWC is friendly and accommodating. On my most recent visit, the waiter made several strong recommendations and kept my Diet Coke full.  What’s more, the eatery’s casual atmosphere with vintage wall signs lends itself to a laid-back overall dining experience. 

Carolina Wing Company stands apart from other wings-centric places. Just be sure to ask for extra wet naps.
