Best Wings: The Esso Club

As one of the most iconic restaurants in Tigertown, there is no denying that The Esso Club is considered a favorite and a Clemson tradition. Originally founded in 1933 as the first sports bar in Clemson, the Esso Club has grown into a nationally recognized sports bar, and has earned this year’s title of Best Wings in Clemson. 

At The Esso Club, you can get your wings deep fried, grilled or breaded and tossed in one of twelve different rub options. Their wide variety makes it a no-brainer as to why people come again and again. 

The atmosphere is another important part of the Esso tradition. Customers who choose to sit indoors get the classic sports bar experience surrounded by Esso club and Clemson photographs and relics. The patio is more popular on game days, when hundreds of fans line up under the Esso Club sign to enjoy a meal before heading to Death Valley.  

Even if you aren’t looking for their award-winning wings, The Esso Club has something for everyone with their popular club chicken wraps, nachos or sandwiches. They also boast a full bar, and no meal is complete without one of their delicious bottled or draft beers. 

The Esso Club’s convenient location is just another perk of this well-rounded establishment. After crossing Highway 93, just look for the unique “Esso” sign for some of the best wings and quality service in town.
