All the food here is good but if you eat here, try their country ham sweet potato biscuits. Excellent and they cater as well. They allow sampling of their peanuts and that's always fun for our out of town visitors. Highly recommend.

Sometimes we forget about our local restaurants until we stumble back in. Pitty! Weekday lunch time. Hungry, but no paticular plan in mind. Driving in a part of town we normally avoid or bypass. Remember a previous visit and a good sandwhich. Ok, I order...More

That was not our eating experience at Smithfield. It looks as if the management is offering an apology and an offer to try their food again. The patrons may have had their order "drop through the cracks." I'd encourage the... More
