Businesses In Fayetteville NC & Fort Bragg NC!

FayBest.Com Proudly Presents:


Connecting the top local experts to the consumers who need them.

To All Fayetteville Consumers:

Hi and welcome!  Quick question.  What's the best form of advertising?  If you said word-of-mouth(or referrals) you'd be correct! And the reason a referral is made is to connect someone with a need to someone you respect in a business that can help them.
Before the advent of the internet , I was referring people to the best businesses I'd found by using the phone or mail or in person.  Now I've created this site to pass that information on to a much wider audience including those of you that are just moving here. 

If you like to get good value for your dollar, good service, honesty, integrity and consistency, you are going to love frequenting these businesses. And even better, when you connect with these businesses, they will provide information you need to make good decisions on purchasing whatever product or service you need.  The contact info is on each individual business page.

I was born in Fayetteville, lived here all my life, opened a business here and I have been a customer of most of these businesses, some for decades, and can personally vouch for each one of them, as I or my team have shopped and/or researched each one.

Oh, and I should mention that my family(and its a big one) has been in Fayetteville for a hundred years.  My grandmother had 13 children,  her sister had 11, the rest is history, and the general consensus on these businesses is the same. Full disclosure: some are owned by relatives, lol.
So if you are native or new to the area and are looking for a great place to buy tires, have a good meal,  get a good cup of coffee, have a drink, party, and more, visit these businesses and tell 'em that I sent you.  Use the menu buttons on the left and/or scroll down to take a look at the companies and click on their page link to check out the information on services, directions and hours. 

Also, if you'd like your business to be considered for promotion on this site, call us for an application at (910)484-7946. And if you'd like to submit a business in an industry you don't see listed here, you may send the request to info @ faybest dot com

Looking forward to seeing you in and around Fayetteville.

"I Highly Recommend Them All"

EZ Auto car dealer in Fayetteville, NC is one of my favorite businesses in town because the owners are providing a quality used car dealership with financing for bad credit, no credit, financial issues and more.  They have more awards and professional associations than any used car dealer I've ever seen: (CIADA) Carolina Independent Automobile Dealer's Association, (NIADA) National Independent Automobile Dealer's Association and current Vice President, Quality Used Car Dealer of the Year, (CMD) Certified Master Dealer Accreditation(1st ever in the Carolinas),  Better Businsess Bureau Accredited Business and the National Vehicle Leasing Association. Additionally, the family that owns this business knows cars.  Some of you will remember the drag racing team of Sox and Martin, one of the most successful drag racing teams of all time in an era of Funny Cars, Super Stockers, 426 Hemis, 427 Comets and all.  Buddy Martin, and now his son Chris, brings the same level of quality and professionalism to this dealership.  Go by and see them and be sure you mention that you read it here.   



My affinity for this Hooter's of Fayetteville sports bar goes back to 1983 when the first Hooter's opened in Clearwater Florida.  It was.......a hoot, lol.  Smiling pretty girls everywhere, great food, big screen tv's, cold beer, grouper sandwiches, a casual, irreverent, self deprecating tone on the menu; it was....in a word, FUN!  The formula remains the same to this day and you'll experience it at this location.  Things are more high-tech, plenty of events, catering, family friendly with a kid's menu,(BTW: kids eat free on Sunday), pay per view, all the sports you want, specials and a military discounts for our local warriors.  'Nuff said........I'll see you there.


This amazing company is the original and still the best stork rental provider in the country and it started right here in Fayetteville!  Many people don't realize that they even have a children's boutique here at their location on Hope Mills Road.  Open now for 25 years, Stork News provides a rental stork for birth announcements, and special announcements of all kinds. Upon departure it leaves behind the announcement bundle as a memento.  Stork News is also a great source for gifts of all kinds including their famous chocolate cigars.  You really should check out their website where you can shop and even order online.  Simply click on the heading at the top of this paragraph and enjoy!



They said it couldn't be done, but Joe Sugar's proved them wrong.  The average guy has enough trouble finding good clothes that fit, much less the unusual size guy, (how 'bout 6'5 260). Then along comes Joe Sugar's which carries approximately  227 different men's suit SIZES, 11,000 pairs of pants, 8,000 suits and sport coats, and 5,000 shirts, not to mention everything else the sharp-dressed man needs, from shoes to dress hats. I say "big and tall, short and small, Joe Sugar's fits 'em all."  We've been shopping there over 30 years.  Did I mention they are out of the high-rent district?  Click the link above this paragraph and go see Joe.


I've been using this legal plan since 1997.  If you are like me, you probably didn't even know you can get legal representation this way.  You pay a monthly fee based on the plan you select (averages between $17/month and $35/month). It then makes an entire attorney firm(38 attorneys last time I checked) available to you, which then provides all the information and services an average consumer or business owner would need.  Most of those services are covered with just the monthly fee, but I gladly paid a discounted extra fee for extremely complicated services when I needed them.  I've saved a lot of money, time and aggravation over the years, received great legal advice, got a will prepared, an audit handled and collection letters written for my business.  I can't understand why anyone would use Legal Zoom or other form-providing sites without consulting an attorney first.  How do you even know what form to ask for? And don't even get me started about why I have Identity Theft protection with them.  Give it a look by clicking on the link Legal Plans/IDTheft Protection. And feel free to call me with any questions: 910-484-7946.  It's one of the best personal/business investments I've ever made. It served me so well that I became a rep.  Yes, if you purchase the membership through my site, I get commission. Don't let that dissuade you.  Get if from someone else if you want to, just get it.






My family and I have been customers of Owen's Florist for as long as I can remember.  I can't even begin to describe the hours of enjoyment conveyed to recipients through those floral arrangements.  And of course that is only the joyous occasions.  As professionals in the industry, Owen's provides appropriate arrangements for all occasions from personal to commercial(weddings too).  Tell them what you want, they deliver, literally.  Click above and call or go see them.


I guess you can tell from the name that its going to be good 'ol Southern Barbeque that you get at The Barbeque Hut....well, you are right,  and its deee....lish! And you can add to that, some of the best fried chicken and hush puppies around, local flounder, catfish and the occasional pork chop special. This is rib-stickin' food.  Al and his crew do a great job. You'll see a lot of smiling faces in each of their places. For contact information, directions, reviews and a list of services, just click on the link above this paragraph.  Good eatin'!

Mona and DeWayne run a tight ship here.. That's important when storing your valuable possessions, whether you live here permanently or are stationed here and going on deployment, etc.  The facility is extremely clean and well kept, good prices including military discount as the owner is former military.  This is also one high-tech storage facility.  State-of-the-art security cameras and digital security access help guard your valuable storage items.  Modern climate control systems provide for the ultimate in preservation of your documents and furniture and other items.  You'll definitely be happy with this facility. 



I have known the folks at Heritage Jewelers for many years. I can say without fail that they are among the best people you could ever do business with....they do care about the service they give and the solid reputation they have built. They have always gone the extra mile to accomodate myself and my family.  They are also the patent holders on several pieces of military jewelry including the Airborne Ring and Special Forces Ring.  Definitely check them out: www.heritagejewelersfnc.com and go by and see them in Westwood Shopping Center.




I can't tell you how much office equipment I've gotten from OFW over the years.  Matter of fact, I have desks and desk chairs that I bought from them 25 years ago that I still use (sitting in one of those chairs right now, lol). Work desks, executive desks, file cabintets, steel case work chairs, fireproof safes, you name it.  The best thing about it, is that a great deal of the used furniture looks so new you can't tell the difference, except in one important area.......that's right........the price.  It is one of the greatest joys in business to get a deal on quality items that you really need and this place has always had them.  Go by and see for yourself.  Oh yeah, and they deliver too.  That wasn't as important when I was younger and had a stronger back, but it is now.  Check it out:

The first time I used this company 20 years ago, I thought since my brakes were squeaking, that they needed replacing.  You know, many brake repair shops  would have jumped at the chance to replace the front and back brakes and of course, turn the rotors. But the owner, Ron Willis and Jay Leach, told me I didn't need brakes since I had a few thousand miles left on the front and rear!  The squeak was probably lack of lubricant.  Is there anything more refreshing than a tire and repair shop that actually only repairs things that need repairing?  Since that time I've gotten all my brakes, batteries, tires and more from Ron and his crew. I highly recommend them. For directions, contact information and a list of services just click here: https://locator.carolinas.aaa.com/nc/fayetteville/aaa-fayetteville


If you like good coffee and conversation and a good atmosphere to have it in, you'll find this coffee shop provides all of that and more.  Try some great baked goods with your coffee or make a meal out of the stuffed croissnats.  The shop is in a convenient location and the coffee is great and reasonably priced.  Its a great place to go before or after the movies right next door and the same with the Bordeux Spa which is also a neighbor. Its just a comfortable, well appointed place to visit. For directions, contact information and a list of services, click on the Coffee House button in the menu at the top of this page. BTW: They have opened a new location located over in Hope Mills on Camden Road in the Millstone Village Shopping Center.  Google them for information.


This restaurant has won so many awards, they can't all be listed here. Suffice it to say I've been eating here for over 30 years and I've always had a great meal. Steaks, lamb, shishkabobs, lobster, good salad bar, superb wines, great dining atmosphere with a fine bar in the waiting area. Greg and Luke will grill you a meal on their open flames that you'll be talking about for a long time afterwards. You can depend on that.
