Raised in NC living in Los Angeles, I don't get BBQ like this. This BBQ is like I like it. Not dry, not to hot seasoned to perfection. When I get off the plane coming to NC the first stop I make is here. If...More

We felt like BBQ, and couldn't decide between Moore's and Smithfields. Based on TA reviews decided on Smithfield.. Good decision! This is good NC style (read that vinegar and pepper) BBQ. If you're looking for sweet, sticky sauce, this isn't it. But even better than...More

I would hate BBQ if this was all I could get. The meat was cold, not smoked, and the hushpuppies were flavorless. Glad we shared a plate so we only wasted $10.

We have visited New Bern many times, but never stopped at Smithfield's before tonight. We were pleasantly surprised to discover really good food at an amazing price. The friendliest restaurant we went to all week. Highly recommend.

I was excited to try some Carolina-style BBQ at the Smithfield's in New Bern. I was dismayed at the size of the chicken pieces (extremely small) and the taste. I am used to great BBQ from the mid-west and this was horrible tasting to me....More

Very clean. Very friendly people who want you to be comfortable and happy. The food was delicious. It is a chain, but not the type of fast food restaurant that one might think. We had gone to Smithfield's years ago and were delighted that things...More

The BBQ is eastern North Carolina pulled pork. The plate comes without a bun. The slaw has some mustard in it and, I think, vinegar. It is not, as I remember, a heavy mayo slaw.
