Came in alone and placed a to go order. Waited at the bar for 20 minutes. None of the wait staff says hello or offered me a beverage While I waited. It wasn't busy. Ribs were small and dried out, chicken wings on the verge of undercooked, and just smothered in a sauce readily available in the Kroger up the... More

Service was fast & friendly and the food was fresh and fast as well! Unfortunately we didn't try the bbq on this visit, we had wings. The only 'complaint' I have is the dressing. Both the blue cheese & ranch dressing and both tasted like something totally different than what they were supposed to be. I mentioned this to our... More

Tried Carolina Ribs on the Run for the first time tonight and we will DEFINITELY be going back there. I had the pulled pork with green beans and onion rings which were delicious and my husband got the sampler which had wings, ribs and pulled pork in it. The ribs were AMAZING. They fell right off the bone and the... More

I was happy to see Carolina Ribs on the Run re-open. They do have some of the best ribs in the area. This particular visit, I was feeling wings.. and usually they have some of the best wings. I ordered my favorite -- Garlic Romano (blue cheese) and a 1/2 rack of ribs. I saved the ribs for another meal.... More

We got carryout lunch today. The portions were more than enough, the ribs were fork tender and our sides delicious. I have never been a rib person but I really enjoyed my meal.

So, my boyfriend and I were a bit hesitant on trying CROTR only because most places around here that boast about their southern bbq and ribs are barely ever that decent, however, Carolina Ribs has amazing ribs. They literally fall off the bone and they had us craving for more... we still are. The cole slaw isn't that good and... More

I stopped by the other day and the ribs were out of this world. I love what they've done with the place, it is a great use of space with plenty of seats and they've added an awesome bar. Bartender was very friendly and the owner stopped over several times to check on me.
