This is a long shot....restaurants in Fayetteville, NC

We may be stopping in Fayetteville, NC on the way to Charleston and am curious if there are any interesting, good restaurants for dinner that aren't a chain? I've Googled and Yelped and nothing seems inspiring and wondered if any had a personal recommendation.

Thanks!

If you don't have to be exact at Fayetteville I'd look for a good BBQ place--there or nearby. It's the heart of eastern NC BBQ.

Just took a look at the map for where Goldsboro is and you might want to take a little detour over there and go to Wilber's BBQ OR Scott's BBQ. These are historic BBQ places.

I could even suggest that for a more scenic route to Charleston you head over to Wilmington on I40 (Goldsboro) is just off that road) and drive down Route 17 to Charleston. Wilmington is about 3 hours via that way. It is 4 lane highway, not crowded, and not difficult at all. You could even stop on the way to see Georgetown, Pawley's Island, Brookgreen Gardens. A LOT more interesting drive than 95.

AND if you were interested in a destination dining experience, you could go to Vivian Howard's The Chef and Farmer in Kinston. She of the TV show and many many recent awards. Reservations absolutely required.

That is fine. Going via Wilmington does add about 2 hours to the trip.
Just thought you might like some local color with the suggestion of BBQ for dinner. I'm sure there is some in Fayetteville. There surely is some in Wilson, just up the road from there.

When I used to drive from Charleston to DC, I always stopped at Cracker Barrel in Smithfield. It's right about half way.

Here's the BBQ trail map. There are several not far off 95.

If you can hang on a little longer stop in Summerton. The diner there is famous.

We decided to drive straight through.....which I think is the best plan.
