“Fresh Food For Late Nights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

We stopped by this restaurant late one evening just before closing and we were a little concerned that we would receive warmed food. We ordered our meals and were pleasantly surprised that everything we ordered was made fresh and it was delicious!

“Clean & good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

Food is excellent, just wish they had 1 "healthy" choice... one plus is free coffee. Fried chicken is excellent as is the sweet tea. They come around and top off your drink.. no matter what it is. Great service!

“Best BBQ around!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Our favorite place in the Burlington area for BBQ! Never disappoints. Staff is always friendly, service is quick, and you never have to look around for a refill on your tea or water. I have never had a meal here that wasn't delicious. We actually pass by 2 other BBQ places to get to Smithfield's because it's that good!

“Fast food, but a little different”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

The BBQ at Smithfield's Chicken & BBQ is pretty good and so is the chicken. The coleslaw is pretty good, too. Hushpuppies are passable, but not great. Having said that, the food is not a lot better than you would find at most of the chain fast food restaurants.

The counter/order process is about the same as most fast food restauratnts... you order, pay, and they give you a number for your order. The difference is, at this restaurant, they bring the food to your table and refill your drink while you eat. A nice touch, but it leaves you wondering if a tip is expected. Also, the prices are a little higher than most fast food places... more along the lines of Chick-Fil-A prices.

All in all, if you just want a change of pace from the more standard "burger and fries", but you're still content with fast food, this place is not a bad choice.

“Great Food and Happy Employees”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

If you like fried chicken and BBQ, this is the best! Your Grandma would be proud! Combine the great food with the most cheerful and attentive waitstaff and you have the recipe for Smithfield's success. You will find this recipe at every Smithfield's you visit.
