Our first Reno-area Chowhound chow down in a year will be Saturday, Feb. 19, at 6 p.m. at Carolina Kitchen & Barbecue at 950 Glendale Ave. in Sparks. Long-time area residents will remember this place used to be a Chinese restaurant. I can't remember the name -- Imperial Palace?
Now it's a great barbecue place. They opened claiming a speciality in pork. It's gotten better and I think their wings are the best in town. They also have beef brisket, pulled pork and ribs. There's also a large variety of southern side dishes. This is where it could get interesting, Chowhound wise.
The place is clean and the furnishings are pretty basic. It doesn't win points on atmosphere. They accept credit cards.
If you've never been to a Chowhound get together before, I"ll be the big bald guy wearing suspenders.
Please ask any questions via email as board moderators don't like to clutter up the board with non-food discussion.
