Yummy

When you go to bbq place I feel it is necessary to eat their specialty. There were three of us and we all had the pulled pork sandwich. All had different sides though - hushpuppies, potato salad and fries. All were very good - yes the fries were thick so you actually tasted potato. The pulled pork... read more

We got takeout from here on January 30. I had a BBQ/chicken combo platter that came with cole slaw, hushpuppies, and potato salad. My husband got a BBQ/shrimp platter with the same sides and my daughter had hotdogs. We are healthy eaters and we couldn't eat everything. The bill was right around $30.00 and we felt for the amount of... More

We went here because I had been to another Smithfields and wanted to take my husband. The chicken is excellent. My husband also got the Brunswick stew which was really good. Every thing was fresh and hot too.

Smithfield's is like a fast food restaurant but it doesn't taste at all like fast food. It's just fast. Smithfield's has North Carolina chopped pork BBQ and a good clear eastern North Carolina vinegar based sauce. Their hushpuppies are also incredible.

We have eaten here several times and were never let down in the service or quality of food. Weekends are very busy, but the food comes out promptly and hot.

This is our favorite place to stop for lunch on the way to the beach each year. The barbecue sandwiches, fried chicken and french fries are really good. They have great kids meal options and everything is very reasonable. The staff are so friendly and helpful. It gets very crowded on Saturdays during the summer with so many stopping on... More

We stopped in during a very busy lunch hour. The ordering line moved at a good pace, wait time for our food was minimal. Our order was delivered to our table, waitress came back several times to check on us, fill our drinks, etc. My husband and I each ordered a container of Brunswick stew-it's the best we've ever eaten.

I thought the place was kind of nasty. But the food was ok. And on the good side they have activities there. And a car show every week

My husband and I stop here when we travel to the OBX. He's native Texan and I'm a native Tennessean. We both love it because it's very different than the barbecue you can get in our home states. There's something about the acidic bite you get when paired with that sweet, fatty pork goodness that makes it an ultimate combo... More
