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

First time to a Smithfield's, and by golly, it won't be the last. Very nice, very clean restaurant. Prices are very reasonable - pulled pork bbq sandwich for $3.99, combo with fries and drink for $6 and change. That's what I got, and the pork was uber fresh and yummy, the bun also extremely fresh, perhaps lightly steamed even. Fries,... More

SCNB conistently offers a very high quality food, pleasurable dining experience with excellent service and, in my opinion, one of the best representations of true, Eastern NC BBQ. On my last visit, their heath rating was 101.5! My other favorites for authentic NC BBQ are lucky to be in the mid 90's, though that place smokes their meat on premises.... More

Smithfield has this unpretentious, almost fast food approach to NC BBQ . This location is near the RDU airport. There isa nothing fancy here but the BBQ is authentic and consistently true East NC! Served with slaw and hush puppies it is classic east Carolina. They also serve fried chicken for other southerners tastes.

Each time that I eat at Smithfield's I wonder why I do not go there more often. The BBQ is great eastern carolina bbq and their sweet tea is second to none!
