Smithfields Chicken at Morrisville

This was my first time having lunch at this place. You can forget about Popeye & Churches for now. The fried chicken, bake beans, and mash potatoes were awesome with the friendly service making sure I was okay and if I needed anything else was beyond my expectations.

Maybe I just don't get southern food, but I find the fried chicken over-salted and crunch-less, the sides limited in terms of any healthy choices at all and the barbecue is plain ghastly with no discernible smoke taste. But I am not a fan of vinegar based sauces, so I am biased.

We often eat at this resturant during football season but had forgotten just how good their food is. Their Brunswick Stew is some of the best I have ever eaten.

this barbecue is really good. It is one of better Smithfields that I have eaten. My parents and I ate here and they even commented that it was really good. The prices have gone up quite a bit, but the value pack is still a good deal.

This place is always good, fast, and fresh. Never have we had a bad meal or service. Would definitely go back.

Came highly recommended, however was just O.K. On the plus side, the food came out super quickly, so it was hot and fresh, but even with the vinegar sauce, husband felt like it the pulled pork sandwich was only so-so. The menu board is a little on the busy side, so I ordered chicken, not realizing that it would be... More

The service was great as usual with all of the Smithfield chain. For the most part the food is also very good. I picked up 2 BBQ sandwiches and the pork tasted very good. My only issue was the size of the pieces. I actually had to open the sandwich & cut a lot of the pieces so I could... More

I live near here, and it's a favorite destination for when I don't feel like cooking. I'm VERY partial to their fried chicken tenders with potato salad and coleslaw. What sets Smithfield's apart is their level service. Yes, you order from a counter at the front, but, after that, they do just about everything else for you. They are genuinely... More

If you love authentic vinegar based Carolina BBQ then this is the place for you. I ordered the $6.99 pulled pork sandwich combo during my visit to Smithfield’s. The pork tastes exactly like the straight from the BBQ pit meat I love when my uncles BBQ whole hogs for family gatherings. I did not try anything else while there, but... More

We love going to this place! The food is always so good and bountiful. We always leave very full with very happy tummy's. They have the best sweet tea in the state of North Carolina, so if you are a lover, you have to try some! The waitstaff come around and refill your cup which is great! They also clear... More
