Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 October 2013

We decided to "break" our limited diets and go out for some wings. This place advertises "Best Wings in Town", and "Coldest Beer in Town". Well the beer was pretty cold. But no draft available in a supposedly famous Sports Bar. So, I had a domestic. The wings are about 75 cents each, so we ordered 20. We were given two tiny paper plates (from Dollar Store) and a napkin. Server was pleasant, but we don't think she was a regular. The place was virtually empty, with one guy at the bar. And this is 5:30 on a Friday night. When the wings finally came, they looked like they came off a quail. Two bites and they were gone. Flavor was OK, but certainly not anything that would challenge any other place in Charleston, and I've been to dozens of them. The owner brought two extra wings to us for some reason, but, again, they were tiny. We were quite disappointed and were upset that we broke our limited diet that we need to use to control our diabetes. This, after about 3 weeks of no "bar food". I was not impressed, and will not return.

Went into location to grab something quick to eat. No one behind the bar, Dirty, 4 people in the place discussing illegal activity. Felt I was going to be a victim if we stayed. Don't go here unless you are looking to get into trouble.

Thank jondod
