Customer service at a fast food restaurant... EXCEPTIONAL!!

The lady who took my order was so friendly, brought us out food, filled glasses, and waited on us. As a fast food place, I cannot say I've had a better experience anywhere else! Great Job!!

We had the shrimp for Sunday lunch and it is as good as you will find at a restaurant dedicated to seafood. If you have never eaten @ Smithfields, what are you waiting for?!

Super yummy Brunswick stew, just like I was hoping it would be.. I was so used to Mrs. Fearnows in the yellow can that was sold in stores but this was better than that.. would highly recommend. The hush puppies were ok... I don't like sweet cornbread. The staff was super friendly and down to earth.

I did not choose to eat here; my husband did. I ordered shrimp with a double order of brunswick stew. The shrimp was tiny and average, but the brunswick stew was excellent. But what impressed me the most was the customer service from Merle, the young man that took my order. If every employee were like Merle, there would never... More

Smithfield's is not the best eastern NC BBQ but it is good and the price is right on. The wife and I often stop by when we need a BBA fix

We stopped in 3 times during our weeks stay. Sometimes for lunch and or dinner and to take back to our hotel. Get the special with stew, so you get the extra for a dollar more. Chicken is fabulous, BBQ is tops too. Wish they had time to make their own deserts (especially pecan pie). Sweet tea is a little... More

Great food, even better service, wish they were in VB. we ate at Smithfields before we headed home and it was fantastic, we have eaten at the one in Havelock and really enjoyed it and it's great to see this one was run exactly the same way. If anyone has ever eaten at a chick-fila, this casual dining restaurant is... More

Instead of wasting money and spending too much $$$, just go here. Service was great! You know what they already have and it's cheaper!

Good BBQ and the staff was great, constantly filling our drinks and asking if they could do anything else for us. We will eat there again.
