Seriously, Holly has several excellent suggestions on his webpage, measured in grease stains...

What would help is if you let me know from which direction you'd be traveling. If you're on I-95 coming from the North, I can steer you in the right direction for a couple of joints that are not too far away. There's a couple of good places in Wilson (Mitchell's is my favorite). There's a good place just north of the I-95, I-40 intersection -- Stephenson's. If you're willing to take a greater detour, then head over to Goldsboro and visit Wilbers, still my all-time favorite.
If you're coming from the East (unlikely) or the West, I can hook you up in those directions, too. The bottom line is that any decent barbecue is probably an hour to 90 minutes away from Pinehurst/Southern Pines.

When did the South become so popular.

Surprisingly, Pinehurst does not have much eating places. I thought it attracted alot of out-of-towners and at least some good eats would have emerged... oh well.
If not BBQ, I would welcome any suggestions for any good ol' southern fried stuff as well. Has anybody heard of Eastwood Diner?

Wilber's actually has a website: http://www.esn.net/wilbers/
There are a couple of barbecue restaurants in Southern Pines, but I haven't visited either of them.
John's Barbeque & Seafood
I'm not familiar with the Eastwood Diner. But then, if you're in Pinehurst, what you really want to do is sit in a rocking chair on the porch of the Pinehurst Hotel, drinking mint juleps.
Off topic: Where are you playing?

We're playing at Legacy, Little River, Woodlake, Carolina, and Tobacco Road. It's a bit too much. However, I'm about done with grad school, and need to fit in as much leisure time as possible before the inevitable.

Good eats in some other local establishments - Ashten's, Rhett's, Wolcott's (all in Southern Pines) and some fun bars are around too - Maxie's, Bell Tree, etc.
