Great food .... but drive thru service needs help.

I love this place more than any other Smithfield's Chicken and BBQ that I have ever been to! (And I've been to quite a few!) The sweet tea here is the absolute BEST and the food is EXCELLENT. I have been a regular here for years and just recently .... within the past few months, the drive thru... read more

Some friends in our party had lunch at Smithfield's and informed us the barbeque was very good and enjoyable. They said the service was fast, the tea very southern.

We were in NC, it was lunch time on Sunday, so we were thinking BBQ as we drove past Dunn on I95. Smithfield's is 4 miles off the interstate, through town, so it is not "easy off, easy on" by any meals. The place is bright and the pace is frenetic.....kind of like fast food, in that you order at... More

Anytime we're coming back from or going to the Wilmington area, we detour over to Dunn to eat here. They are always friendly and very fast with your order. You can't get a third low on your tea before someone fills it back up. We're from Lexington NC, so I can't say the BBQ is the best (I'm very biased).... More

Food ok. Floor greasy. Server not very good. Fast food chicken and barbecue that doesn't measure up to competition. Recommend sticking to the chicken which seems to get the better reviews.

We were en route from home to Ocala on a Sunday, and realized our lunch choices would be limited. I learned with a ‘phone call that Smithfield’s was indeed open. We were both surprised and delighted at the restaurant. Somehow, one doesn’t associate barbeque restaurants with the bright, airy aspect here at Smithfield’s. The place was quite busy, but not...

Literally it is the best! I don't what they marinated it in but it was moist and tasty all through the chicken. The 2 PC white came with breast and wing along with one side (plate size)

This place is A-1! I had the 2 PCM white chicken combo - it was seasoned perfectly and juicy. Came with 1 side. My hubby had the barbecue platter - very good. The didn't drown it in sauce. The house sauce is like an eastern North Carolina vinegar BBQ sauce and I highly recommend anyone to try it. The service... More

Really great service here, the staff was super friendly. The sides, banana pudding, and sweet tea were great but the pulled pork tasted like it had been boiled in vinegar and spiced to set your mouth on fire. If you enjoy that style of bbq, this is the place for you. If not, then the fried chicken might suit you... More
