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

About once a month we stop in and get BBQ and chicken for dinner. It's always good and very reasonably priced. The staff are mainly younger people but they're very attentive and nice. 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.

Quick and easy in and out - drive through service, too. Always clean and friendly. Go inside, order at the counter, take a seat at a table and they bring the food to you. I really like their fried chicken wings!

Went through here the other night to grab dinner and we ended up hungry. The service is slooooooooooooooow. Took forever after ordering to get our food. We got home and we just could not eat more than a couple of bites. The chicken was extreemly dry. The pulled pork just tasted like spicy vinegar. The hushpuppies were hard and extreemly... More
