I really like Smithfield's. Their BBQ is very good, as well as the sides that come with it. I also like the chicken tenders.

The Bbq here was awesome, hush puppies...mmmm ice tea, very good. Popcorn shrimp tasty. For a Bbq place it has good selection of food. I would definitely eat here again, and again...happy eats!

After a very long day of fishing we were very tired and hungry. So we went through their drive through, so we could take the food back to our hotel. Everyone enjoyed the food but it was more then we could all eat so not only did we have a great dinner bit also a great lunch.

I stopped by last Saturday afternoon to pick up two pounds of barbecue to take home to my family in Virginia. Everyone was so nice - they even packed my bag full of ice to keep it cold on the way home. And the pork was delicious! Can't wait to go back!

One of the better commercial restaurant's to get eastern Carolina barbeque. The place is always clean and friendly staff and they are always coming to the table to refill you drinks.

Their may be a few local B-B-Q places with better B-B-Q but they are few and far between. Go here for consistently great NC B-B-Q.

In eastern North Carolina .. you will not believe the portions you receive and with the southern hospitality included makes this a real winner. Is our favorite chain Restaurant and we look for opportunities to stop and enjoy the great BBQ and the wonderfully old fashioned tasting fried chicken .

The place is great for Pork BBQ, Beans and Potato Salad. Very Very friendly and fast service. Great to eat in and take out. The Havelock location is great, I wouldn't say the New Bern is the same. There is a difference with the two. Giving the place 4 Stars.

We make a point of always stopping at this particular Smithfield's on our way back from the beach for many reasons...1.) Super fast service 2.) Over the top courteous service 3.) Fresh food....not dried out from sitting under heat lamps forever 4.) They always check to make sure you are enjoying your meal and have refills. 5.) Bring the food... More
