Best BBQ Chicken Ever

I was visiting my niece when we decided to stop here for dinner on New Year's eve. It was warm, humid and rainy outside but it was lovely on the inside of this restaurant. I ordered the BBQ and chopped BBQ platter and it was the highlight of my trip home to NC. I look forward to dining at the... read more

When we are on the road traveling (and this was day 18 or so for dinner) and decided to give Smithfield's a try based on the reviews. We were very happy to see that this is a BBQ place that locals line up for to eat. We ordered 3 bbq sandwiches and 1 chicken tender plate. The price was fair... More

Being new to the area, my wife and I decided to try the Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q. We had noticed they seemed to be busy every time we went by so we decided to stop and try the food. It must be the chicken that keeps the people coming back. It could not be the Bar-B-Q. I would like to... More

Stop there whenever we travel the 95 corridor through NC and always stop at exit 22 to visit the Lumberton Smithfield Chicken and BBQ. Food always excellent, we have tried the fried chicken, bbq sandwich, fries, brunswick stew, hushpuppies and slaw. The fries with the combo meal are your traditional frozen crinkle cuts, but they cook them to perfection. You... More

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
