Good BBQ and Value for the Money

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... read 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.

I had lunch at Smithfields & ordered the BBQ Platter with baked beans, potato salad & hushpuppies. The food was very very tasty. A coworker with me got the chicken tender snack and she said they were great. Real white meat and a large portion as well! I will definitely be ordering from them again.

Smithfield's is by far one of the best BBQ joints. Their pulled pork BBQ sandwich with coleslaw and hot sauce is excellent. The fried chicken just can't be beat. I live in South Carolina were there are no Smithfield's so I will literally make a trip to North Carolina just for their food. While staying in Rocky Mount, the first... More

We often stop at the Smithfields up and down Hwy 64 going to the beach from Winston-Salem. We usually have the dark combo plate with fried chicken and BBQ; I have potato salad and slaw; makes my mouth water to think about it; my husband is a confirmed Bojangles man at home but loves this fried chicken and so do...

If you are traveling Rt.95 and want to stop for a quick, inexpensive, delicious lunch with very attentive service this is the place to go. Don't miss having the fried chicken and the hush puppies. We will definitely be back. By the way it is also very clean and quiet.

Out of all the places in town where you can get fried chicken, I found that Smithfield's is my go to spot. I've never been disappointed with the food or service. The chicken hasn't been greasy or dry. The seasonings are always perfect and I enjoy their hushpuppies too. My co-workers love their sweet tea and there's never a day... More
