Pretty good Carolina BBQ for "fast food"

It's ok, but certainly not the best. They're a good choice for on the go dinners. Pork tends to be dry and hush puppies are always overdone and hard.

They have excellent fresh fried chicken. The barbecue, cole slaw and hush puppies are all good. Really everything is good here. You can't go wrong from the sweet tea to the sauces and desserts.

We came in for a quick bite. Platter came with a spillage of coleslaw that soaked the fries and the bottom of the fried chicken. Hush puppies were warmed and tasted heavy as if they'd been under a heat lamp for a while.

While in town from Denver for the weekend I asked my friends to take me somewhere to have the best North Carolina BBQ so they took me to Smithfield's. I ordered the BBQ plate (NC BBQ with 2 sides and hushpuppies) and it was awesome! I chose the NC stew and coleslaw as sides. Everything was delicious, hot and fresh!... More

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!!

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.

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
