“Hidden treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Smith's is a tiny cafeteria-style restaurant tucked into a super small strip mall about five miles out of town. They offer some of the best home cooking in Eastern NC. I guess they don't advertise because the locals pile in every day. This same family operates a grocery store and meat market next door that's the cleanest I've ever seen. For travelers, Smith's is less than a mile from I-95 at the village of Dortches, NC. The store is already well known, with many out of state license plates in the parking lot. It's not fancy, but simply the best food around.
