Large portions; friendly, helpful staff; tasty food

I ordered the BBQ & Shrimp combo plate (actually, it comes on two plates), and it was more than I could eat. Full disclosure: I already know that the Texas and KC schools of BBQ are the best, so I knew I was going to have to make an adjustment to what is called BBQ in NC, but the shredded... read more

Great food and service at a great price. The staff and food quality never fails to deliver here. We always eat here when in the Triad.

This is very simple. The food is basic cookie-cutter barbeque found at any of the Smithfield Chicken 'n Barbeque locations. It is consistent from the fried chicken to the 'cue to the fries and hush puppies. What sets this place below the others is cleanliness. Tables are not cleaned after patrons leave. The garbage can on the patio was over-flowing... More

I am a bbq snob, and I admit it. If you don't like vinegar based bbq you are settling for second best, and denying your taste buds a treat. The bbq sandwich value pack is the way to go. The staff here always goes the extra mile. Go to Smithfields knowing you will not be getting 'tomato based' bbq, but... More

I went to Smithfield Chicken & BBQ to for to-go lunches today and am highly disappointed. First of all, their packaging is awful...they place styrofoam containers in plastic bags that are too big so that the containers tip over in the bags and create a mess. One of my favorite things to buy at Smithfield's is the pork skins, which... More

Had lunch there yesterday. I have had everything on the menu but today I got the BBQ Sandwich combo.The BBQ is Eastern style and it is always good. The sweet tea is super sweet. Reminds me of how my mom used to make it. It's crowded for lunch at this location but they are nice, it's clean and my food... More

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.

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.

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.
