“Typical Smithfield's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

BBQ was typical Smithfield's. It's not my favorite BBQ but it's pretty good. Service is fast and they constantly are refilling ice tea & water. Easy to get to off I95. Lunch on the way home from Hilton Head.

“A "MUST" for Lunch or Dinner on I-95”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

Even though I live in Charleston, SC, I'll always be a NC BBQ Girl at heart and this is some of the best around for quick, fast food, BBQ off I-95. Whether you get a combo plate or a sandwich, the BBQ is moist, not overly seasoned, not greasy or fatty, and is served with a yummy Eastern NC Vinegar Base. The Fried Chicken will blow your mind (crunchy, hot, moist, cooked in small batches so it's perfect every time) and the Brunswick Stew (which is one of their most popular sides), Slaw and Hush-puppies finish off a great meal! The Restaurants is extremely CLEAN and the staff are always VERY FRIENDLY and ATTENTIVE. Service is Fast and Efficient. If you Drive Through, you will get through quickly and your order will be correct! Ask for anything extra you need (Hot Sauce, Napkins, (get lots of those), straws, sugar, etc and the pass it through the window with a smile. Eat inside and you will order at the counter but a very friendly waiter will bring your food, refill your tea, whatever you need. LOVE LOVE LOVE Smithfield's BBQ and YOU WILL TOO!

“GREAT service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

We had a family in Lumberton for a funeral and these folks could not have been more helpful. The food is very good and they went out of their way to serve our fairly large group.

“Best Fries Chicken Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

Great fried chicken is hard to find you always get the other kind but not here. The vinegar Bar B Q is great but the chicken takes top honors. I will certainly return here again. .
