Ate at this location a couple of times this week while in town on business. Had the BBQ sandwich and the Shrimp on another visit. Both times the food was excellent and had fast service. Like most Smithfield BBQ locations I have visited, this one also had very good service and very nice staff ! Will be sure to visit... More

Althought tastey, they are sure proud of the pints of BBQ! We'll continue to go, because it's "home", but only for the plates/sandwhichs.

When we crave broasted chicken, Smithfield's is the obvious choice. We love the chicken, hush puppies and coleslaw. Lots of people (this is the south, y'all) love the sweet tea, but it's too sweet for me (Ohio born). Specials offer greater value.

This resturant has won me back as a SCNB customer. I've had bad experiences at other SCNBs years ago. Decided to stop at this one purly for convenience and was pleasantly surprised. The food was fresh and very tastey. The staff was friendly and helpful, they even carried our trays to the table, and offered us specials that weren't on... More

Pulled in on a whim. Trying to stay away from popular chains. Never had been here. The service was great, and all the workers were very nice, and they stayed busy. They constantly sweep, clean windows, and walk the floor with tea refills. It was great. I had the pork plate and the vinegar based house sauce was great. We... More

We enjoy good Q, and SCNB provides that and so much more. The staff folks here are the friendliest people we've encountered. There's nothing they won;t do to make sure your meal is wonderful.
