I love the Barbecue at Smithfield's because it is vinegar based not red sauce. The barbecue has the right amount of spices and is oh so good. Smithfield now has chicken tenders which is great for me because I like boneless chicken. If I do not feel like frying chicken I buy it from Smithfield's, it is the closest thing... More

You can always count on this restaurant to have great barbecue. Cooked just right with a tasty vinegar based sauce, this is one if our absolute favorite place to get barbecue.. The serving size is generous on both the sandwich or the dinner plate.

A fast food restaurant. Food was good but the fried shrimp was rather salty. Basically, if you like fast food with a slightly different menu, this is the place to eat. A great way to change up restaurant eating if you are in a hurry.

Been here many times and they never fail to provide a great tasting lunch. Choices are limited in this area which makes me come here often.

The BBQ and chicken are both good. The Value pack, BBQ sandwich and fries and a drink is great for lunch and dinner. The sandwiches have a lot of meat on them and coleslaw too if you prefer. My husband will get a Combo White Platter and eat the BBQ, Potato Salad , Coleslaw and the Chicken wing and save... More

We always enjoy the chicken & BBQ, we always ask for 4 minute fries. The staff is always friendly and polite and can't do enough for you. Enjoy Smithfield's every time we go.

Traditional eastern BBQ, not beef, but pork and chicken. Cultural shock if you are from the Midwest of western US.

I was in the area for business travel and decided I needed to have Carolina BBQ at least once before I go home! This place is awesome! The staff is super friendly. The food is tasty, fresh, and a good value! I loved it!

The organization I work for always orders Smithfield's for large events, I personally think the food is nothing to write home about. The hushpuppies are terrible, there is just no nice way to put it. The BBQ is very bland. The chicken is average. I cannot comment on the service, as I have never been into the restaurant, nor will... More
