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

Fried Chicken is good. I only eat my dad's bbq but when I do have a sandwich, this is the only place I will order bbq.

Ordered a family meal to go. The two young people behind the counter were mean and disrespectful. I spoke to the manager who offered me additional hush puppies, not even trying to correct his people's attitude. Food is good, the people are not. Looks like I'll have to find another place for chicken & BBQ.
