Dependably good Bar-B-Q

The food at all Smithfield's Chicken 'N Bar-B-Q restaurants is consistently good. The cashiers at this location were especially friendly and helpful.

I stopped in here on a business trip because the place looked crisp and clean . I couldn't decide what to order and the nice lady behind counter suggested the chicken and pulled pork combo. WOW there were two pieces of white meat cooked perfectly throughout with a tasty crust the BBq pork was very good as well. I had... More

We stopped here with my elderly father-in-law, with his companion dog who he hates to leave. We picked this place because they have an outdoor patio where the dog could accompany us. Although you place your order at the counter, the staff brings the food to your table, and they are very attentive with drink refills, condiments, etc. They were... More

This review is for the restaurants in Greensboro & Siler City. I didn't see those choices from the drop-down menu. I absolutely love their BBQ sandwich with their rib sauce. Chicken tenders are good, also. Forget the banana pudding. The people working there make this place rock! They're always very friendly and ready to help.

just your average not so great chicken place over priced. Sometimes I ask myself why do I keep going to these places. My review just fair. I think I will stick with burgers

I always enjoy Smithfield's at the various locations throughout NC. We stopped at the Rocky Mount location earlier today and I had the regular BBQ Platter with Slaw, Hush Puppies and Brunswick Stew. They don't offer a salad of any kind which seemed extremely odd for any restaurant. I also have had the chicken and it is outstanding. Recommended stop... More

Smithfield's Chicken 'N Bar-B-Q is my go to spot for hot, fresh, fried chicken. The restaurant is always busy and the service is friendly. So far, I've never had any problems with service or quality in food since I've been going there for about two years now. Also, their Sweet Tea is a favorite with my friends and co-workers. I...

My first time at Smithfield's and was not disappointed. Chicken and fixings were awesome. The staff and manager were attentive to our needs even after we received our order. A restaurant like this is needed in our area!

Hello Mr. Averitte! How are you doing? I wanted to reach out to let you know that I visited your store in Rocky Mount, NC again yesterday 11/06/2014, however, this location was sold out of BBQ again. A white female manager wasn't professional at all. There were over 10 customers who wanted BBQ, however, she didn't come out of the... More

I love their food but the price is just too high. for a BBQ sandwich, fries and tea is $7.00. or a 3 wings and fries and drink $9. Thats just too high for lunch.
