Heard lots of good things about this place so thought I'd take the family for supper as we were traveling down I 95. Let it be known, I love BBQ! The restaurant was nice (and new from what we were told). The air conditioning was set on "sleet" as it was freezing cold. Service was nice and helpful as we... More

Really didn't understand a rather new building being torn down and replaced with a new state of the art building, but the food is fabulous!!! Always served fresh, staff is always friendly.

The best I've tasted anywhere. I am a definite bbq snob and inquire for any favorite bbq places when I travel and this place hit the number 1 spot for me. Cannot wait to go back down South and when I do, I will definitely go back for 2nds.

The visit to Smithfield's Chicken was wonderful. The Pork barque platter was more then enough food for a good price. The Restutant was clean and staff were very attentive and helpful. Clean bathrooms, which is always a plus, especially when it comes to resturants.

We stopped in Lumberton for dinner on the way home and decided to get Barbeque. My husband noticed the sign about the chicken special and tried that. The fried chicken was fresh and delicious. The bbq was great as well. Very quick drive thru and service.

The chicken and bbq are the best. The hush puppies are perfect. Lots of tables if you want to dine in and lots of parking. Platters are big and filling. Sweet tea is the best around The staff are very very friendly and very efficient. We have Never had a bad meal. And it's been renovated with even more room.
