Very good!

The food and staff were great. My husband and I both ordered white chicken and shrimp. It was very good. The bbq sauce they make is sooo good!

Great food from a varied menu, particularly, the pulled pork sandwich, excellent and friendly service and a location close to I-95 make this a "must stop" when travelling on I-95. You'll find a lot of locals here, which speaks volumes for the quality of the place!

This restaurant is known for its chicken, so you won't be disappointed here. What is surprising however is the very friendly staff. And not just friendly but they also provide wonderful customer service, that is generally not expected, but always appreciated, in a modestly priced restaurant. Thank you for the wonderful experience.

Love this place! This is the 2nd location I've been to, and while the food is excellent, what impresses me most is the staff. Everyone is friendly and quick to ask if you need anything. We stop as Smithfield's every time we pass through NC on I-95.

Chicken was excellent. Not too spicy,not too bland and not greasy! The potato salad is a southern version,not the straight up mayo and mustard NY deli style. It's good but it is a little different. Same goes for the cole slaw. There is a touch of sweetness to it,again different from the NY deli style but delicious. Would go back... More

I must admit I was always a big KFC fan (original recipe), but Smithfield's chicken is far better, IMO. I think it is very good value too...bigger pieces of chicken than their competition at good prices.

We did take out and were very disappointed. The barbeque was very vinegary and no one suggested that we might want some barbeque sauce to put on top. I found the meat ok only and the other person in our group hated the meat, esp. without sauce. So back in hotel room we were not happy. The slaw was ok... More

We stopped in Lumberton for the night and were looking around for a place to eat. We stumbled on Smithfields and decided to try it. Wow the service was superior! We were so impressed with the way were waited on. I have been to high end restaurants that were not as solicitious!! We decided on the BBQ platters and were... More

Picture this, we are on our way back from Parris Island, SC driving north to Connecticut and love the Smithfield Chicken so much that we stopped in and got chicken and 4 gallons of sweet tea to go. That’s right 4 gallons. Being from New England, sweet tea is rare up north. After I had got the tea to bring... More

I do like fried chicken. There are lots of chicken chains: KFC, Bojangles, Popeyes, for example, but Smithfield's is the best. It is a North Carolina Company with about 3 dozen locations, all in NC. Although this is not a waitress oriented place, orders are brought to the table, and whoever is out on the floor stops by often to... More
