Real Southern BBQ off I-95 corridor during southeast road trip

My wife, teen children (2 boys and 1 girl)  and I are driving to Florida for spring break.  My kids really want to try real southern barbecue in any state south of the Mason-Dixon Line (Virginia, N. & S Carolina, Georgia).  We want to try something that is no more than 5-10 miles off of I-95.  We don't want a franchise or tourist trap restaurant.  I know that we can look on Yelp! but I thought the best recommendations would come from this site.

    Thom--if you decide to go to Savannah (which I'm pretty sure is just off the 95), be sure to post about it--I don't know any BBQ places there but I do have some good restaurant/activity ideas for you! · (0 likelikes)

    Buz and Ned’s Real Barbecue, no question! I went to school in South Carolina and everyone bragged that South Carolina had the best barbeque. Then I brought back some of this barbeque from Virginia, and they quickly changed their minds. It's a hole-in-the wall, but definitely the best.

    The Pit is the best place anywhere close to I-95 in NC for barbecue. Someone in another state may be able to give you a better answer.

    Thom,

    I'm not sure how far off of 95 it is, but The Pit is my favorite BBQ restaurant in NC, and I have lived here most of my life, so trust me it's worth checking out!The Pit

    Be prepared for a lot of 'Q styles as you move south! Here are some of my favorites:

    Virginia - King's Barbecue

    North Carolina - Parker's Barbecue

    Georgia - Wiley's Championship BBQ

    If you just Google towns along the way, then put "BBQ" in the Explore Nearby box, the map will light your way south... Enjoy!
