Road Trip- SC/Durham,NC/VA Help!

ian9139 | Apr 5, 2009 03:27 PM

We have a long road trip back to NY from Florida, and I am hoping for some good rec's to try some of the best food the south has to offer! Due to time constraints, we can not stray from our route too much.

We are traveling from Tampa up 95 past Jacksonville and Savannah to US-40 to Durham, NC.
-Jacksonville recs for lunch I'll look on Florida board but any other good stops?
-I have no idea where, but delicious South Carolina bbq along the route would be awesome.
-Have heard good things about Fuller's Buffet in Lumberton or Fayetteville. Is it good/bad? We are concerned it might be closed late on Easter Sunday when we are passing through, will call.

Durham, NC:
-Is Allen and Son's the best bbq that we will find near our route?
-Looking to try one of the recommended southern-style places, for either brunch or dinner, but can not decide between Watt's Grocery, Crook's Corner, Piedmont. What do you recommend? It seems that Magnolia Grill, Revolution, Nana's are a bit more expensive, but maybe will try if they are really worth it.

Up 57 to 501 to 59 to Charlottesville, Va.
- Anything not to miss on the way?
- Please help with Charlottesville, I have no idea what is good there.

Then up through Baltimore to NY.
