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

This restaurant in Lumberton, NC is a very short distance off I-95 at the northernmost Lumberton exit. It is so clean and neat and the food is just great. The prices are very favorable especially for family dining ( I reccomend the large BBQ platter). The family atmosphere and friendly staff make this a very enjoyable dining experience. Highly recommended... More

This restaurant is right off I-95. It is very clean and the service was very fast. The fries are shoestring style, which I like. I only had the bar-b-que, but they also have fried chicken. Definitely recommend!

We stopped here on our travels down I95 south. They have great carolina style bbq and fried chicken. My family of 5 ate here for $28. We particularly liked the chicken BBQ sandwich and potato salad. My kids raved about he French fries so much that the lady working in the dinning room brought him over another serving. The staff... More

That is a meal to die for. Their French fries are great too. The tea is the southern style. I either want me tea unsweetened or southern so sweet you can almost stand a spoon up in it. There is no in between. One of the great things is it is so convenient to hwy 95. Easy off and on.... More

I always eat at a Smithfield's when I have the chance. Never had a bad sandwich at any of them. Their vinegar based Bar-B-Que is awesome.

Delicious and inexpensive. What more can you ask? The chicken was moist and tender and we got a big pile of the best hushpuppies with it. The NC BBQ sandwich was full and delicious. Recommended.

Went into this place expecting a BBQ restaurant such as Sonny’s or Jimbo’s. It’s more like a fast food place. The BBQ sandwich is served with a sweet slaw on top. It soaked through the bun pretty quickly, so eating it requires plenty of napkins. Do you want BBQ sauce with that? I hope not, I didn’t see any. It’s... More
