Wonderful chicken

Brightly lit inside, extremely clean, great service and wonderful fried chicken. Chicken pieces are huge and our box came with a gigantic bag of incredible hush puppies. Sweet Tea sold by the gallon, and my wife fell in love with the banana pudding.

Fried Southern Style Chicken, cole slaw on the side. Hush puppies cooked to a crisp, (Fried cornmeal) Potato Salad. If you want to try southern food this is the place....excellent Barbecue too! I would highly recommend this place for a true NC style of eatin'.

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.

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 service has... More

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)
