The food is always hot and fresh and the people are friendly and helpful. They also have amazing BBQ and hushpuppies.

We frequently stop at Smithfield's BBQ for lunch and for take out meals. Love their BBQ sauces and good cold slaw. Also the hush puppies are awsome too.

We often eat here when visiting this area of NC, and the chicken is always pretty good. But i must say that the potato salad I ordered Wednesday April 26th was beyond delicious! It's absolutely homemade and better than any side I've ordered from Smithfield's!

I had the chicken, my husband the bar-b-q. The food was good, not great, but good. The service was excellent. I've received similar service at 5 star restaurants. If we are ever this way, we'll consider stopping again.

This is a chain of restaurants serving chicken and barbecue (eastern North Carolina style, red pepper and vinegar). The service is efficient and friendly, and the decor is nothing that fancy. Expect to be served in about three (3) to five (5) minutes. The barbecue...More
