Whirlwind tour: Raleigh, Charlotte, Columbia, Wilmington

I'm planning on taking a food trip to this area, mainly to eat BBQ, but to eat other things and relax as well. I still need a couple of restaurant suggestions. I'm trying to eat mainly things that I can't get at home in Seattle. I'd mainly like to stick to BBQ, Southern Food, and East Coast Seafood.

I'm planning on flying into Raleigh from Seattle late on a Thursday night. I want to eat lunch at The Pit in Raleigh on Friday. I'll stay somewhere between Raleigh and Winston-Salem Friday night. That leaves a dinner anywhere in that area for Friday night. Suggestions?

Saturday, I'm going to stop for lunch at Lexington #1, and continue to Charlotte. Any recommendation for a good dinner stop there?

Sunday, I'm going to drive from Charlotte to Wilmington, but detour through South Carolina. I haven't picked a place yet, but I do want to try somewhere with a mustard based sauce. If I have to go all the way to Hudson's Smokehouse near Columbia, I will. If anyone has any recommendations, I'd love to hear them.

From there I would like to spend Sunday and Monday nights in the Wilmington area. The Surf Shop looked like it would be a fun lunch on Monday. But I still need dinners for Monday and Sunday nights.

After this, I drive back to Raleigh on Tuesday morning for my flight back to Seattle.

Thanks for the help in advance.
