Just knowing that Smithfield's barbecue is cooked fresh , you also know that you will really enjoy your pork. Fried chicken is also good right by itself. Their prices are reasonable.

We actually went through the drive-thru and it was not a bad wait, typical for a drive thru. We did get everything we ordered so I guess that is good

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.
