Have you heard of eastern NC bar-b-que? Well, smithfied's is the standard. You can't go wrong with Smithfield's chicken either. Service is super great. I go to smithfield's before I go to any other b-b-que joint!

Quick service. Good eastern NC style BBQ. Great fried chicken and hush puppies. Large portions of French Fries. They have a secret menu item of "Thighs and Fries". Which is a good deal. They also offer a senior discount!

Smithfield's has been around for a long time...for good reason! They simply have the best chicken. It's seasoned perfectly every time, plenty hot and crispy, and more than ample servings. The BBQ is delicious, tangy NC style, the staff is curteous and fast. Who needs...More
