I was home for my class reunion 3 weeks ago and I had to stop by my favorite BBQ spot. I love their BBQ chicken & pork platter. Their homemade BBQ sauce is much lighter than the ones found in your local grocery store. It is light and flavorful. The BBQ pork is seasoned just right and the lemonade is... More

Every time we go thru North Carolina we always stop here. The pulled pork is so tender that you can cut it with a fork. They give you lots of barbecue & lots of french fries. The food is always good.

Pulled pork was great. Service was fast and staff continually asks what else you need. Restaurant was very clean and well lit. Staff was very friendly.

I realize now why they feature chicken before BBQ in their name. Wife and I ordered 2 BBQ sandwich combos. Orders came out very quick and brought to our table. It was lunchtime on a Thursday. The sandwiches were rather tasteless. We both agreed. Service was very good. Next time we'll try the chicken.

This place was recommended by the staff at the hotel we were staying at nearby. Very good food, especially for this rookie who believe it or not had never tasted Carolina BBQ! I know disgraceful! Very friendly staff, very clean and fast service. It was a great choice!

We always count on stopping at Smithfield's Chicken when we travel between Philadelphia and Florida. Have never tried the BBQ. Generous portions freshly prepared.

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.

Stopped for lunch on our way home from South Carolina. I didn't expect much when we pulled in the parking lot. Just needed something quick. To our surprise, the food was exceptionally tasty and the prices were unbelievably reasonable. We had to order our food at a counter, but then we sat at at a table and our food was... More

Great Eastern NC BBQ and delicious fried chicken and shrimp. The food runners give great service, so leave some change on the table please!
