Good Carolina food

Better than average barbecue restaurant, with good chicken BBQ and baked beans. This is a restaurant to go to if you like or want to try Carolina style barbeque.

The Carolinas are known for their vinegar-based sauce, so don't expect to find any molasses-based sauce here. Smithfield's offers simple pulled pork, slaw, potato salad, beans, hush puppies, and fried chicken. But the best thing on the menu is the Brunswick stew!

Smithfield chicken and barbecue has a very good Carolina style pork. If you're a fan of the vinegar style pork then you will like the barbecue. You also have other items like chicken and barbecue chicken. I would have to say that barbecue has a little bit more vinegar than most other Carolina barbecue spots but is good.

Convenient stop between Raleigh and Wilmington. We split a chicken + BBQ platter and were pleasantly surprised by the amount and taste. Almost converted both of us to vinegar-style BBQ!

Overall, food was good. Potato salad just a little dry, maybe sitting around too long without stirring. Good service, clean establishment

We stopped here to have lunch on the way back from Myrtle Beach. I wanted some chicken barbecue and ended up getting fried instead but it was still good. Their barbecue is in pork which we don't eat but the other items in the meal were very good. I also had potato salad, cole slaw and baked beans that day.... More

Food is served hot and is definitely tasty with every bite. We get the combo plate and you can ask for double fries instead of two sides if you wish. Refreshing sweet tea. Lots of refills.

Stopping for lunch after viewing the Bentonville Battlefield we tried Smithfield's. We were quite impressed with the clean establishment, friendly and attentive staff, great bbq pork sandwiches and large portions of baked beans and potato salad. Seriously if ordering the sides consider sharing one with your significant other so you don't have to throw it away. For melt in your... More

My husband and I eat at Smithfield's often...we love the baked beans with the b-b-q in them, the slaw taste like fresh made. the chicken is crispy and the bbq cooked just right, not too spicy or hot.
