We had another busy time sorting through and ranking the hundreds of nominations for businesses across the spectrum. We had more engagements this year than a Kardashian. We’re thinking of our own “behind the scenes” reality show for how Best of the Pines comes together.

As usual, you had no trouble sharing your overall powers of discernment. More than 17,600 of you voted in this year’s Best of the Pines edition, and the total number of votes topped 272,000. That’s twice as many people as voted in municipal elections across Moore County last year. Politicians have some catching up to do.

e’ve made it through the drippy days of another Summer in the Pines, which means it’s time for our annual look at the best of the best here in Moore County.

Illustrations: Matt Greenburg

id you notice some funny images during the campaign and wondered why we chose them? If you grew up in The Old North State, you learned in elementary school that our state bird is a cardinal, the state flower is a dogwood and the state tree is — you guessed it — a pine. We also included North Carolina’s state insect, the honeybee, and the state fruit, a scuppernong grape. We wanted our graphics to pay homage to some of the iconic symbols that specifically make Moore County feel like home. The gray squirrel, our state mammal and a non-dues-paying HOA member of several golf course communities, was one of them

ed’s Corner, the food truck campus on the corner of Old U.S. 1 and Morganton Road in Southern Pines, has only grown in popularity since opening in March. It had been open for less than three months when Best of the Pines voting polls opened in June, but that didn’t stop it from winning six awards — including four first-place finishes as well as Best New Business and Best New Restaurant. The community has clearly spoken: Red’s Corner is the 2022 Best in Show award winner.


The longtime vision of owner Rachel Jurgens, Red’s Corner is filled with food trucks every day, serving up lunch and dinner and often even breakfast and dessert. The trucks and patio area surround the centerpiece openair bar, with craft beer on tap, along with wine, mimosas, kombucha, seltzers and more. With a playground, lawn games and a variety of food and drink, the spot has a little something for everyone. 901 SW Broad St, Southern Pines • 910.246.0205 •
