Awesomeness!

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... read 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.

Who ever heard of a half a piece of chicken? Is there even such a thing? We had a family gathering this weekend with about 50 people. Not only did we run out of chicken the caterers ran out of plates and forks! When asked about how could we run out of chicken the answer was "we only provide for... More

The restaurant is small, but nice. They even have a sink right by the counter so you don't have to go to the bathroom to wash your hands. Great pulled pork, a huge serving of fries and good hushpuppies. Yum!

Since Smithfield is such a big pork producer, I hoped that they would have good BBQ. Also, there were rave reviews online about this restaurant. "Best BBQ ever!" "Great staff, so friendly!" I never saw a smile the entire time I was in there. The woman who took our order was sullen and not happy to be there. The others... More

Their BBQ is served Carolina style with a vinegar base, not ketchup or BBQ sauce. The chicken is also quite good. If you like Brunswick stew, their's is the real deal. The food is brought to your table after placing your order at the counter. The decor is 50's and 60's movie star themed.
