October trip to Emerald Isle, NC from Richmond, VA

chefsalad | Sep 15, 201610:44 PM

We are taking a trip (from Wednesday evening to Sunday lunch) from Richmond, VA down I-95 and then over to Emerald Isle, North Carolina. I do hope to catch some dinner in the surf, but we want to eat well. I have experienced some of the better NC BBQ restaurants (Skylight, the Wilson Parker vs. Bill's joints, and Wilbers) and honestly, I am more fond of the Lexington area pulled pork than the chopped Eastern NC 'cue. BUT, I want to try some others on the way. And we want to eat well near Emerald Isle, and on the way to and back.

I think we will pass through or very near:

I-95 through VA into NC


Rocky Mount, Goldsboro, Kinston, and then 58 to Emerald Isle.

Any and all suggestions for great food from ham and sausage to a really nice dinner, from BBQ to oysters, country cooking/soul food, and maybe a REALLY nice pie or two? We like a nice cocktail, a craft beer, wine and maybe even a sip from a local still (really...that would be nice)

It will be mid-to-late October.

And by all means, I want to fins some great local markets where I can buy stuff to prepare myself
