Well, I got so many good suggestions from my Plymouth thread (so much so, that I'll probably be making a "food only" trip with GF in the near future) that I thought I'd ask this one.

Tomorrow (Friday, 10/7) GF and I have to go to Fayetteville to do a pet assessment (she's a trainer). I think it's at 3:30 and will last less than an hour. She and I like "off the beaten path" places, and believe that the journey often IS the destination.

We are looking for a unique place to get some food.

In the past, I've tried some of the buffet's down there (Chason's, The Sand Dollar [I think that was the name], etc, and they are fun. I'm down for anything. Southern food is good, as is just about anything else. I assume we'll come back via 87-US1, just because I-95 at rush hour. I'm mostly familiar with Sanford as I lived there for a long time, so possibly I would pass on that.


To get an idea of what would be ideal, check the Plymouth Thread. Poggly Woggly and Cat-Link are right on target. I'm looking for an experience. If the food is great, that's a bonus. Divey earns extra points.

This is for tomorrow, if that matters. (we are making a "date" of it, so if there are non-food things to see, I'd like to hear about those too. It will be rainy out, so that factors. I don't know what part of town yet.)

Sanford is not very sophisticated, but we have been in Ron's Barn for barbecue. The pulled pork was good but greasy.

On that route, I can't think of anything but chains and barbecue places.

If you went out of the way a bit, you could visit the Fearrington House Restaurant. They say they do not have a formal dress code.

I have to agree. Big fat NO to Ron's Barn. (Yikes, that brings back memories. The Ex-family used to do some family get-togethers there. Blech.)

Heath's Charcoal Steakhouse in Dunn. I haven't been, but I assure you it's on the list.

Tried to rep you but I need to share more love around...

Pik-N-Pig is what I was going to post.

Be aware that some gps directions are wrong. Mine brought me to the other side of the runway. I could see it, I could smell the smoke but I couldn't get to it!

You could do some restaurants in Pittsboro. Angelina's Kitchen and Small B&B are both highly recommended.

If you want to make more of a road trip out of it you could go via Pinehurst and Southern Pines, but that's more than a little out of the way.

If you want to eat in Fayetteville folks recommend Sherefé. I haven't been there, but it's a Turkish place downtown. Friends really like it.

There is a Fuller's BBQ in Fayetteville. Smaller than the one in Lumberton, but same great southern style food. Just don't eat the bbq. Oddly enough, its not that good.
