Chicken and NC BBQ well done!

I've eaten here many times over the years and it always seems to be done right. I usually get the family BBQ and Fried Chicken combo which includes two sides and hushpuppies. Its not the fanciest, but it is good. I've never been disappointed. Its just great for takeout.

No Finer Bar-b-q & chicken to be found in NC. There unique seasoning makes this a family favorite. If you haven't tried Smithfield's, you haven't had the best yet. It's great!!

We go there about once a month and get the tailgate special - fried chicken, bbq pork, 2 sides, hushpuppies & gallon of tea . The price is right and the food is delicious, consistent and SOUTHERN. :) Great when you don't feel like cooking.

My husband and I are new to the area and had never been here before. The food was cooked well and pretty good. The fries were a let down as they tasted like mcdonalds. The pulled pork was cooked perfectly, though I don't care for vinegar based sauce so not my favorite. The fried chicken was juicy and good. The... More

They must have higher expectations for their staff than many of the chain restaurants in the area. Keep up the good work. BTW, their bbq sauce is... More

Smithfield's Chicken 'N Bar-B-Q was totally new to my family and me when we first moved to the Clayton area just over 10 years ago. When the family is in the mood for fried chicken, Smithfield's where we go. The atmosphere is casual but the service is exceptional.
