We have been stopping here for their chicken for years. Best around. Moist and full of flavor. Puts most chicken places to shame.

We always stop here on our way to/from Florida and pick up cold bbq and sides for our dinner at the end of a long drive. The service is warm and friendly and the food is tasty.

Smithfield Chicken and BBQ is a typical Eastern NC BBQ place. Nothing fancy, but really good 'q. Fried chicken is melt in your mouth and very tasty. Served hot. Sides include Cole slaw, potato salad, baked beans, fries and really good Brunswick stew. Sweet tea that is real southern sweet tea. Wait staff is always on top of things, offering... More

The name suggest you will be eating bar-b-q chicken. Didn't see any food items being bar-b-qued? Got the combo platter, fried chicken and pulled apart. The fried was very good. Asked for a bar-b-que sauce. The guy said they had rib sauce. It was mainly vinegar, very tart and sour. It would have been better just to order all fried... More

On the way back home from the beach we went there and the food is awesome. My son and I shared everything. We got fried chicken, a bar-b-q sandwich and brunswick stew I and telling that was the best brunswick stew I have ever eaten. The prices are reasonable too.

The BBQ is moist and tender. Hush puppies are a little sweet for my taste but still enjoyable. The Brunswick stew was loaded with veggies and chicken. I could have made a meal of the stew alone. The potato salad was delicious, but I found the fries bland. Friendly service. After you order and seat yourself, your meal is brought... More

Growing up on Eastern NC BBQ there is nothing that compares. Now that I live out of state, Smithfields is my must stop whenever I come back because it is consistently good and is the BBQ I like. The Chicken is good also, but the BBQ (pulled pork for those who the term BBQ means something else) is the best.

Smithfield's is a small local chain and I have eaten at this restaurant and several of their other locations multiple time. I have never been disappoint. The BBQ is excellent. It is shredded with a vinegar base sauce. The slaw, potato salad, and Brunswick stew are all really good sides. I have also tried their fried chicken on one occasion... More
