Good old fashioned fried chicken with the fixins. We tried the BBQ too and the sauce was great. Drinks are huge.

I travel up and back I-95 at least twice a year and usually eat at either the Smithfield or Lumberton location. Service is always prompt and friendly, prices reasonable, food plentiful and tasty. I like the wash basin in the dining room too. The BBQ is comparable to that served in places that are known for their Q.

What an awesome family friendly restuarant! We met the cutest lady as we walked in the door of this establishments. Our family had barbecue, fried chicken and Brunswick stew. Every thing we ate was super. Once again that cute little lady came around and offered us a refill on our drinks and then she returned to help us clean our... More

Got a late take out dinner of pulled pork and fried chicken. First off it is not BBQ. Not smoke flavor and really reminded me of roast Spanish pork. BBQ sauce was very lacking. Now the chicken was good. It really was. Beans, Cole slaw and hushpuppies were good as well. Would go again but just for chicken.

We love this place. The fried chicken is so delicious. It's crispy and always hot and juicy on the inside. The pulled pork has the right mouth of spices and the vinegar based sauce makes it even better. Their hushpuppies are equally delicious and the best french fries (thin cut) ever. We stop here any time we are heading down... More

If you like eastern NC style barbecue, then sample their pulled pork. Good side dishes and excellent hush puppies.

Ok. I like bbq especially NC bbq which I can't get very often. My wife and I tried Smithfield's take out and it was outstanding. We had pulled pork, Brunswick Stew and French fries. Only bad thing is we discovered this place on our last day in Lumberton so we could not go back.

Convenient stop close to I95. Good fried chicken and friendly service. You place your order, pay the bill and the food is brought to your table. Seconds on beverages are offered at your table. A bit more expensive than National fast food chains and worth it.

Can't tell you how many times I've seen the signs on I 95 but never stopped. Stopped off for gas and realized I was very hungry and went through the Lumberton drive through. What a find. Sandwich was piled high with meat...no skimping here. BBQ is different than my hometown Pierces in that it has almost no tomato but very... More
