Choosing between original honey hot, BBQ sauce, hot BBQ sauce, Asian, chipotle, TL rub, or naked is nearly impossible at Townline BBQ, so we recommend you try them all. If you really want to prove your claim to fame, try the Townline BBQ Wing Challenge: Consume seven of their Carolina Reaper Pepper wings in seven minutes and endure the burn for seven minutes. Those who successfully complete the challenge get their names posted on the Wall of Fame and get the price of the wings and beer comped, but if you fail, say hello to the Board of Shame.
