Hubby got the two thighs and fries special and the look of ecstasy on his face as he had his first bite was awesome! I had the shrimp box with hush puppies....awesome! Real winner was the stew. Homemade, like a vegetable soup with pulled chicken and BBQ pork added! Totally rocked! Service fast and friendly!! Portions huge!

Gastronomic Distress. What the Heck did they put in that fried chicken. 40-min postprandial and the gut was amess. Felt the batter was way over the top; too much for the fryers to handle. Greasy, but the chicken was cooked; maybe overcooked underneath. Slaw was tasty but awful yellow in color. Been here before and the grub was much better... More

We make it a habit of stopping at Smithfields on the way to and from the beach for the past 9 years.. I've written reviews of places all over the world, and just realized that I've never written a review of one of the best fast food BBQs around. I always order the value pack.

It's a North Carolina chain and well known around these parts. Barbeque is some of the best in the state. Simple Southern Style eats, fair pricing, very clean restaurants. Customer service is outstanding. If you are on the way to or from the coast, this is a great place to stop and eat lunch.

Just passing through and stopped at Smithfield ' s what a great choice. The food was delicious and the service was the best example of southern hospitality I have ever experienced. The tea in the soda shop ice was refreshing. The only drawback was the restaurant was chilly. But nothing a light sweater couldn't fix!
