Great 'Que, fast service

This restaurant is right off Highway 74. The BBQ is excellent. They also offer fried chicken, but we didn't try that. Ask for the Value Pack (BBQ sandwich, fries, drink) to save some money. They also offer senior discounts.

Even a very good restaurant can have issues with consistent fried chicken. Some days good, some days not so much or they can have a day like today. Today at this restaurant I ate the best fried chicken breast I have ever eaten. (64 years old) It was incredibly moist, a challenge for a well cooked breast. Served hot by... More

I live in Texas so when I visit family close to this area, I drive out of the way just to eat this unbelievable eastern North Carolina BBQ and fried chicken. I even get one of those little coolers from the grocery store and buy extra to enjoy at a later time. I look forward to this great food all... More

My wife and I just ate here. This was our first time at a Smithfield 's and frankly when we pulled up I did not expect much. I was not heartened when we sent inside either. However, this changed when I took the first. The chicken was cooked perfectly. Even the wing was tender and juicy. I had the combo... More

Great food, generous portions and awesome service! I tried chicken tenders this trip and wasn't disappointed. Moist, meaty and crisp!

Food was good and the sauce on the table was great but for 9 bucks a plate they need to beef up the portions a bit. Literally like one small scoop of tater salad and beans next to maybe 4 oz of pig. Fried chicken was pretty good also not overly special but not bad.

Ate here at the recommendation of my hotel. The chicken was hot, juicy, and flavorful. The pulled pork was tasty and tender. The sides and the shrimp needs help. The staff was great and your tea glass was never empty. Would probably eat there again but would order different items next time.
