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.

All the locations are great. A quick meal puts one back on the road but I always get take out for home too. They even pack the order in ice.

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.
