In Laurinburg NC for business. Not really hungry. However couldn't leave without having Smithfields. Had my usual chopped bbq sandwich with hush puppies.

Smithfield's has the absolute best "Mulligan stew" I have eaten. The shredded pork sandwich is piled high and the pork is very tender and cooked to perfection. The employees are extremely friendly and genuine. I highly recommend this place for great food, great value and great service.

I have visited this restaurant several times since it opened a few years ago. The BBQ sandwich has always been excellent. They have great sweet tea and as stated in other reviews the banana pudding is great. Customer service has always been with a smile which is hard to find these days. Thanks Smithfield's for always delivering your best.

We have eaten at Smithfield's in several different locations. The quality of the food has always been something we can count on, regardless of where we are. We have eaten here twice in the past week...on our way to the beach..and on our way home. We were pleasantly surprised by the attitudes of the young staff members. Everyone we interacted... More

We stopped for dinner while in town overnight. Smithfield's gives Bar-B-Q a new meaning. My husband and I each had the Bar-B-Q sandwich with fries. The serving was plenty for both of us. The meat was tender and flavorful, the fries crsipy. The customer service was awesome! The staff brought our tray to us and kept our drinks refilled. This... More

Absolutely love their BBQ with their signature sauce. Customer service is awesome and food always taste great. If anything is not to your likely- they will make it right! Consistently great food and the tea is always sweet. I wish all fast food restaurants would carry the same standards. Awesome job Smithfield's! Keep up the good work!

Recently stopped in to order a Party Pack. This is an excellent idea for anyone who is looking for catering for a small or large event. You will receive plenty of food along with all of your serving utensils and paper products. I must say the helpfulness of the staff was excellent. The manager took the time to make sure... More
