The name is Peebles Wing Shack, but the menu has so much more than wings.
The jumbo fried chicken wings made the sports bar’s reputation, but check out the Cajun-influenced items such as the po’boy sandwiches, the pulled-pork sandwich or St. Louis-style ribs. There’s even a selection of seafood platters – choose catfish, flounder, shrimp, crawfish or mussels – and frog legs.
Actually, the frog legs – tossed in corn flour and served with your choice of house-made tartar sauce or cocktail sauce – and the crawfish are two of the best-selling items on the menu. Probably because of the uniqueness factor.
Serving sizes are large at Peebles. The catfish, flounder and shrimp are served in half-pound servings; frog legs, crawfish and mussels weigh in with 1 pound servings.
If you’re willing to share, try the Potluck Lowcountry Boil that contains 1/4 pound of shrimp, 1/2 pound of crawfish, 1 pound of mussels and the usual red potatoes, corn and andouille sausage ($20.99).
For those wings, the most popular sauces are the hot ranch, Southwest chipotle and the homemade hot. The Southwest chipotle is a creamy medium-hot sauce, not unlike a spicy remoulade, and the homemade hot sauce has a slightly smoky cayenne slow burn.
Peebles Wing Shack at 1332 Rosewood Dr. is owned by Patricia Peebles. Another location can be found at 129 E Dekalb St in Camden.
(Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly listed Will Peebles as the owner of Peebles Wing Shack. He is the head chef.)
