Stopped in for lunch. Order at the counter and they bring it to you. We thought it was great barbecue and my husband really liked the pickles in the coleslaw. Free refills, and friendly staff would stop by to see if you needed anything - one cheerfully brought me a lid so we could take the rest of our coleslaw... More

We tried Smithfield fried chicken and it was the best we've ever had, can't compare to other places. It was fresh and ready with a large selection of sides. It has a big and nice dining area

Went for a trip to the bbq. My favorite place for bbq. My son loves the hush puppies. We both got shrimp and bbq platters. I got a cup of banana pudding. Very yummy

Great chicken and barbecue place with very attentive wait staff and tasty southern style barbecue that is impossible to find in my native Philadelphia.

Always great food, whatever you choose. Everyone friendly and lots of seating available. Food comes quickly and wait staff always around to refill drinks or get anything you might need.

A couple of gal pals and I stopped in early one day to carry out a chicken meal. This place is nicely decorated and clean, with a pleasant vibe and background music. It wasn't crowded, but we did have to wait about 10 minutes for our 8-piece chicken dinner as they had to cook some more chicken. The counter person... More

The food is really good. It is exactly as advertised for a Smithfield's Chicken and Barbecue. The Brunswick stew is really good, the fried chicken is really good. I get the rib sauce to go with my chicken or barbecue. To me, it is better than any other sauce. This is my favorite Smithfield's because they have the nicest and... More

It is fast food so I guess you shouldn't expect too much. The Children's Chicken Tender meal had enough fries for a grown man but only one piece of chicken. It was a decent size and ok - just a little dry. My shrimp plate also had a huge amount of fries, pretty good cole slaw and horrible shrimp. I... More

I wasn't crazy about the BBQ or the fixings. It was edible and ok, but not what I am used to with a BBQ place.
