For you BBQ novices, eastern NC BBQ is sauced with vinegar and red pepper. To me, it is the highest expression of the BBQ art form! But I get that other folks like other kinds and it isn't for everyone. I haven't had a chance in recent years to get to any of the well known BBQ houses in the... More

We do a lot of deep sea fishin out of Morehead City. We always take Smithfield's fried chicken with us. We buy it the day before and put it in the cooler. It is the beat chicken at sea.

Fabulous NC pulled pork with Smithfield's spicy BBQ sauce and perfect crispy fried chicken. The Chicken was not greasy - crisp on the outside, moist on the inside. Great sweet tea and fabulous baked beans!!!

Great inexpensive food if you like pork Bar-B-Que and Brunswick Stew. The sweet tea is made to perfection and the hush puppies are pretty good too. Great family specials good for take-out.

It enough to feed all of us for dinner plus enough leftovers for most of us the next day for lunch. Everything was good but I especially enjoyed the... More

We were lucky to find a great stop where our group of 40 could be taken care of and served quickly with very good food. I will visit them again.

The pork and hush puppies are my favorite non-seafood meals when I'm in the area - and it's affordable and good cold. Wish I had stopped again before leaving Carolina.

BBQ and fried chicken were great. Friendly staff and quick service. You can get it to go and I wish we had done that earlier in the week.

On a recent trip to NC for a niece's wedding ate twice at SCNB at Wake Forest, NC and got take-out at SCNB in Morehead City. Great fried chicken and bar-b-q and I'm a died-in-the-wool western North Carolinian, so them's fightin' words but it's true! Bar-b-q is different west versus east but so is Texas versus Carolina versus Florida and... More
