Late dinner and lunch in Lumberton, NC?

  • h

All the old posts basically say "stay way from Lumberton" there is no place good to eat but I want to know if there has been any change in the restaurant scene in the past several years. I need a late dinner and lunch recommendation. BBQ is always appreciated as is Asian cuisine.

  1. I like Fuller's buffet off Exit 20 on 95. There's all kind of veggies, decent BBQ ( pepper vinegar )ribs, fish, gizzards, cobbler, Sunday seafood, and interesting Indian fry bread. I believe it is owned and operated by members of the Lumbee tribe.

    Don't know if you are familiar with Shealey's in Leesville, SC but the two are similar in the variety offered. While I'd give Shealey's a 10 I'd probably give Fuller's an 8.

      Second for Fuller's. Pretty good country cookin' and good barbecue.

        When my wife and I travel between Trenton and Lake Worth we make it our business to stop in Lumberton to eat at Fuller's.

        I can't say that I am a bbq expert, but I know that Fuller's is one of the best I have eaten at.
