My boyfriend and I decided to try Carolina Ribs on the Run one afternoon because we had a Groupon to use up. When we walked inside we were greeted by a very friendly guy and a young waitress who he was training. We were the only people in there, so the service was great. Food came out fairly quickly and...

Unfortunately could not tell you about my dining experience, sign posted on door says 'closed'. Annoyed since we drove out of our way to eat there. Perhaps a call ahead would be a good idea :-(

My wife and I ordered the golden sauced ribs with potato salad. Fantastic food with very attentive service. They have a great variety of bbq sauces that compliment the meaty ribs. I look forward to visiting them again soon. Don't let the non-descript location fool you. These guys know their stuff.
