Good BBQ

On the way home we stopped here. Good BBQ. Vinegar based. Clean and quick service. Food platters were a good size portion.

The Good: Tastes good, very distinct. Fast food environment. But very clean and friendly. The Bad: It's not BBQ, in any sense of the word that you've come to know. Apparently this is the Eastern Carolina style, not just Smithfield's. The Ugly: It either highlights eastern Carolina's complete disconnect from the rest of the world, as far as bbq is... More

This was my first visit and I may have been expecting too much. The barbecue was great (if you like it pulled which some don't but I though it was very tasty). The chicken was tender and juicy but very breaded. Everything else just kinda average. I would go again though :)

Unassuming & modern look on the outside, I took to the drive thru, had a bit of a language barrier (I had trouble understanding the southern dialect, it was thick as glue) once we got past that barrier, a bit confusing ordering if you know nothing about the place, the menu board helped but was confusing or I was just...

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
