was looking for a quick detour for lunch and my Garmin said there was a BBQ joint close by. Turned out to be Smithfields and we were both very happy with our lunches.

Tried this place since never had eaten at one before. The portions were large and the food tasty. The price was right for the amount of food. The BBQ chicken was excellent and with the cole slaw, potato salad and hush puppies it was a complete meal. (You can also switch out some sides). Would visit this place again if I was in the mood for Chicken BBQ.

Step up to the counter and give the cashier your food and drink order. Pay first and She/He will hand you your 'Sweet Tea' and give you a number. Chances are your number will be called about the time you choose your seat and they bring the food to your table. The barbecue and sides are all hot and tasty and the sweet tea is good southern sweet tea. Smithfield's is not expensive nor is it fancy, but the barbecue is good and everyone there is friendly and courteous. I picked up my empty plate to take to the trash bin and a nice lady said, 'Here, let me take that.' Quick, tasty, and very reasonably priced. If you're traveling I-85 and don't want to wait a long time to get a good hot BBQ or chicken meal Smithfield's Chicken and BBQ is your place.

We always like to stop at this gem on our way home from the beach. It is a cut above the usual fast food stop off the interstate. The chicken is southern and the barbecue spot on. But, what amazed us this stop was the service offered by the employee working the dining room. This gal had customer service down. Our trays were carried, tea never emptied, napkins appeared if we needed them, and she was just so pleasant. We all went to her and gave her a tip and thanked her for helping refresh some weary travelers!
